I wanted to transfer some 20 GB of data from my laptop to PC at home.. I wanted to take the back-up since long time .. This one really got catalytic acceleration when Chandra's laptop got crashed last week. I just dint hvae any alternatives other than loosing all my precious data.
I knew that peer to peer networking is possible by using cross over n/w cable. I googles about it and found more info about it. This link really helped me
I went to SP road and bought the 2 mtr cross over network cable for 45/- RS and with Sowmya's help I could configure peer to peer network.. Amazing.. I was really happy.. I could around 10 GB yesterday.. Today I will copy the rest..
