Hello, everybody.

I was wondering whether I can share folders among my Desktop PC, Laptop, and phone?


Basically, I have one desktop computer (Windows 7), one portable computer (Windows 10), a mobile phone (Android 4.4.4 KitKat), and another phone (Android )

One day I might be working one my laptop, and then, on the evening I might be working on my computer.
I want to continue that same work from one device to the other.

Right now, I am using online cloud services to do this (OneDrive and GoogleDrive).


But it is frustrating.


I was wondering if it is possible to do without google's or microsoft's servers, and just use my own devices and their personal space.

I mean, all my devices are connected to the same router/modem.


But, how do I do it?


Thank you, in advance!

Setting up sharing between Windows 7 and Windows 10 is not too hard. But between your computers and your phones is more complex. See How to Share Data and Files Between Your Android Phone and PC.


You may just find your current way of using the cloud is the easiest.
