What is this tutorial with Windows Share on Android?

When I say Windows Share on Android, I mean accessing Windows shares, from your Android phone or tablet.

What is Windows share (folder, file, printer or partition sharing)?

In Windows, since the world and the earth we have the opportunity to share files, folders, partitions or printers in the network, so that other participants in our private network can access them.

Why use Windows and Android sharing?

Network sharing is comfortable and economical!

Comfort: When you want to transfer files between your computer and your phone, you no longer need to use data cables, or other applications that mediate the connection.

Economic: Why keep the same files on different devices, when you can use your cheaper PC storage as a local cloud.

Windows Share Settings on Android:

For a smooth sharing, you must:

  1. User password
  2. The network should be of the "Private" type
  3. Devices must be connected to the same router
  4. Sharing options set as a tutorial
  5. Choosing folders or partitions to be shared.
  6. Check sharing permissions (writing, reading, etc.)
  7. Check sharing with "\\ localhost".

Settings for connecting to share on Android.

We don't have much settings here, we just have to fill in the data for the connection in the application File Manager +

After connecting the files can be copied back and forth, just as the files are copied to the internal storage.

Network sharing vs. cloud

Some of you may be wondering: Why not use cloud applications, as it is simpler?

  1. It's not at all simpler, it just seems
  2. You have no privacy, your data is collected through the cloud
  3. It is not economical, the cloud costs
  4. Speed ​​is better at local transfer.
