    hi all,
    i'm using a hp microserver with win 7 as a pc/streamer and want it to recognise my win 7 laptop when i connect it with a usb cable?

    basically i want to treat my laptop as an 'external hard drive' in order to transfer some large files over to the server.

    just saves me transferring the files to an external drive then transferring them again to the server/pc.......cut out the middleman so to speak


    any help/guidance would be most appreciated


    cheers.
