Ok, so here is my setup:
Primary computer (COMPUTER1) > Windows 7
Secondary computer (COMPUTER2) > FreeNAS
COMPUTER2 has Windows 7 installed on the hard drive, and tons of files (movies, etc) that I want to share with COMPUTER1.
COMPUTER2 has only one hard drive, and that is what Windows is installed on.
COMPUTER2 is booted into FreeNAS, and the GUI is accessible from COMPUTER1.
Now that FreeNAS is installed, I want to access the files on COMPUTER2.
In the tutorial at engadget (link), at the section below "Create a User", it tells you to create a volume.
I got to that page, and here is my screenshot:
Now take a close look at this part:
I think that warning is quite intuitive. It's telling me that it is going to wipe my hard drive and erase all my data. I don't want that of course!
So how can I access my files?
