A friend of mine (she's not a technical person) has asked me to help her transfer her files from a Windows Vista PC to a Mac Snow Leopard. I'm not extremely familiar with Mac, but I've heard that transferring from Vista to Mac can be a pain.
Basicly, I'm looking for the most efficient way to do this. My first guess would be to create/assign shared folders on the Vista PC, and just fetch what's needed from the Mac. But I'm not sure if I would run into network issues.
Alternatively I thought of maybe using smtp or some other transfer protocol, but I'm not sure if this would be a good idea.
I would prefer NOT to do a manual transfer with thumb drives and whatnot.
Any suggestions or tried procedures are welcomed.
