How do I manage to get this done?

I have a few Files that are too large for me to transfer via USB (and my external HDD is full)

In win XP file sharing has been easy! Where you just enable it, and then under “My network Places” you just click on “View workgroup computers” and then you would see all computers that you have access to..

But I skipped Vista, and just 2 days now I am on Win7 and I just cant figure out how to get this done (Windows 7 part)

I have made a proper crossover cable and have tested it with a tester.
All help is appreciated thanks in advance

P.s. I want to transfer in both Directions From Win XP to Win7 and Win 7 to XP
