I have a stationary computer (Dell Dimension 9200 running Windows 7 Pro) that I want to make into a home server, and I also want to be able to remotely access it from outside the home to save and copy files (just like a storage unit). I've installed a brand new 1 GB WD harddrive in it.
I want at least 4 people to be able to access the server with their laptops from anywhere in the world.
Are there any programs (free or paid) that you could recommend? And how safe are these programs?
