✔ Best Answer
I am not sure what you mean. It may be that since I do not use Homegroup for my mixed home network, I am missing something, but please explain.

I usually set up one or more folders on each computer on my home network that are designated as share and those are visible to all on the network and you can copy/paste or drop files into them to share them with others on the network as long as they have the correct permissions. You can set one folder up as a read only and one as full read/write if you have that need (I do not), and you can set up one whole drive on one or more computers to act as a home dropping place or back up locations for storing redundant copies of important files, but that is the extent of the interaction. If you do set up a while drive as share as a back up drive, it should be a completely separate physical drive so that the failure of one main physical drive does not compromise the back ups from the same machine and others.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

thank you fingers for your response. I do not think I explained it very well.
computers a and b are in homegroup.
on computer a I access computer b and change the contents of a letter (correspondence).
I am not seeing the change in the correspondence when I access the correspondence on computer b.
I see what you are saying - I need to set up a share folder for each computer and access the changed documents that way - is that correct?
