How do I backup files from a Vista computer to a shared folder

This answer was rated:

How do I backup files from a Vista computer to a shared folder on a Win 7 Pro computer. Vista is insisting I need a password, but the Win 7 isn't giving me the option to assign one.

Hello and thank you for your question today. My name is Jason. I look forward to helping you today.


It sounds like you are trying to setup a network share between the two computers. Is this correct? If so, may I remote into your system so that I can set this up for you?
