I am trying to share folders on my deskop with my laptop, but I need something that will allow me to edit photos in lightroom on my laptop that are stored on my desktop via Lightroom.
Thought that maybe windows 7 "homegroup" feature might allow me to do this, but when I try and setup a homegroup on my desktop it says "Cannot create a homegroup on this computer"

Accessing my desktop via logmein.com, to try and set this up. My desktop is currently several miles away, and I need to access those files.

I read something about deleting a file in /peernetworking/idstore.sst - Deleted it and rebooted, still get the same error.

Both laptop and desktop are running Windows 7. Have dropbox installed, but it is already loaded with photos, no room left. So really if I cannot solve this
issue soon, is there any software that will do the same thing?

"Cannot create a homegroup on this computer"

Hi -
Have youever thought of downloading to a CD or DVD or Flash drive to transfer them ??
Once installed on the 2nd computer you can edit them or just keep them on CD until needed.

Regards -

I've had to do that in the past, but I shoot in RAW format, and have well over 100,000 photos. RAW images are much larger then your typical jpegs. I normally use
dropbox, but that is getting over loaded and it's too expensive to keep paying for the larger capacity.

Not that I need access to all my photo's at once, but it sure helps to be able to pick and choose. I'm an artist by trade, and often use photos in various art shows.
Sometimes I need fillers, or samples of my work and that's where the photos come in.
