Does anyone have suggestions how to best manage several computers with different data on each so not have keep 3 computers on all the time while working and going to which to search for file, folder or data you need? I thought at first there might be a way to network them together to access any that are turne on, but that seemed complicated and I was not sure if or how to do it, or if it were the best way. I have 2laptops in same room on same desk with different data and keep the in standby/sleep when not in use by closing lid. I have an original Compaq Presario 5660 desktop and these 3 have most all my important data on them. The desk top is in next room. I have Verizon internet with a modem. The Compaq plugs into modem with Ethernet. The Dell 7 laptop has internal wireless adapter. The Gateway XP has D link wireless USB adapter because internal does not work so the PC shop said. I constantly have to go to one PC, find it does not have the data, then go to another, and finally a 3rd and all may not be already on. I tend to collect lots of files and folders and am not always sure what is where. I also have 3 or 4 large USB external hard disk drives where I could copy much data if wished to. Then I would have to prepare them with the PC hard drive data from each PC so accessible. It would seem easy to have one or two of these connected and access them But then the dats worked with would have to added to PCs. The whole thing seemed so impossible I never did anything or tried further. Someone must have several PCs and lots of data and hopefully would know some way to approach this. I would appreciate any suggestions.
