I would set mine up as a Linux server using Samba because its free. Instructions here. You could also set up Apache and make your files available from anywhere.

Jonathan —

Choose the computer you wish to use as a “file server.” Then, select the drive that will hold the files you wish to access. “Share” that drive. Then, go to each of the other computers and “Map” that drive on each of them.

Instructions here:

I am doing this with a six computer network using Windows 10. Works great. Let me know if any questions.

Good luck,
