comment Access windows file servers from Mac
VPN is the way to go. It's not safe to use the protocols in question over the Internet. You want that communication to be encrypted. The VPN also gives you access to all the rest of your office network resources. There are a billion+1 articles you can look up on how to set it up. If you need help with specifics issues you run into while setting it up then you can ask those specifics here.

Set up a VPN and connect to your office network via the VPN.

Is your server set to use DHCP for its TCP/IP address or does it have a static address?

comment what is the services.msc file in windows?
Windows has another mechanism that will open files with recognized extensions by opening the application associated with that extension. It's not exactly executing the .msc file, it's launching MMC and opening the .msc file in it.

Yes. MMC stands for Microsoft Management Console and is a standard interface for administering Windows components and layered products. The services here are processing running in the background. Same basic concept as *nix daemons.

@Gargee There is no reliable way to tell when the disk will fail. It's a lost cause. Be done with it and move on with your life. Seriously.

@Gargee Disks go bad; it happens. It's not malware. Malware doesn't cause hardware failures. Defects and other physical actions (power surges, blunt force, etc) cause hardware failures.
