How to make sharing between the folders of Windows XP and Mac OSX
I usually use windows in my computer at my office. But now i have a apple laptop also. What is the process to make file sharing in between the two OS.
Is it compatible with the application i normally used. I can use removable media also. But better if there is an option to activate the sharing feature, it will make my work more easy.
