I need to share some files (copy over) from my Laptop (running Ubuntu 17.04) to my Desktop (running windows 10). As the summed amount of files come to over 800GB and not wanting to do multiple trips with a 16GB flash drive I thought the next best course of action would be to connect the two devices together somehow. I chose to do it via ethernet cable as transfer should be reliable and the throughput should be decent.
After connecting the 2 devices together and sharing all the relevant folders on BOTH systems they still don't seem to recognise each other nor do I seem to be able to find any simple solution to what I assumed might be a common occurence.
Extra (but not necessary)
Tips on speeding up the transfer. I was thinking of potentially adding all the folders to a
7z archive (only because I've had good results with it in the past) and save that archive on windows so that you transfer the archive (which would surely be smaller).
