When it comes to sharing files and documents between computers having OS like the Windows, it is very easy to do so but if the computers are running on different OS then it is not that easy. Windows users can directly send the files to another machine with the same OS and so can Mac users do. But if you are working on a network having computers running on different OS then you know how difficult this is.
We found a tool called NitroShare using which you will be able to overcome this issue. It is a network file-sharing application that makes sending a file to another machine on the local network as easy as dragging-and-dropping. With just few simple clicks you can send any file across a network to any system connected and running any OS. Isn’t that cool?
Using the tool is very easy; however you may need to see the installation help to be able to install it. Just make sure that you install this tool on the machines you wish to connect (both send and receive the files). After you have installed the tool on the computers, you would see a mini computer icon on your desktop which is actually the computer connected to your machine. So whenever you wish to send a file to this computer, just drag and drop the file to this icon and you are done.
On the receiving end, you would see a confirmation window in which when you click Accept, the files would be accepted. There is another method too for the file transfer in which, you right click the file to be sent and select the option to send with NitroShare.
The application integrates with the operating system, using application indicators on Ubuntu and the system tray on Windows. The tool is available for free and both for Unix and Windows systems. Download it from the link below.
