    Transferring Items between a W10 pc and A Mac ?


    Hello,
    I use a W10 pc and an iMac.

    Now and then, i have a screen capture, or a simple Document, or most anything I would like to transfer to the Mac.

    Have been doing it now via a USB Memory Stick formatted as ExFat between the two.

    There must be a simpler way.
    Yes ?

    They are both hooked into my single household Router, etc via Ethernet.

    Any suggestions on a (simple) way to do this with the memory stick ?

    Thanks,
    Bob

    :)

    2 W10 PCs on home network

    MAC addresses are unique and are hardwired into every Network Adapter manufactured (aka NIC card). They just aren't unique to a specific device with regards to brand, make and model. A lot of manufactures gets parts from different vendors so it stands to reason not every address will be for the same vendor or item.

    As to identifying what's what on your network, perhaps this article could shed some light - How to Determine Who Is Connected to Your Wireless Network

    That said, I think you need to stick to one problem at a time to lessen confusion. Either solving the network communication issue or figuring out what's on your network.

    And you never answered my suggested fix post. Where are we on that???

    Hi,

    There are many reasons why you run into this error when transferring your backup files from a Mac hard drive to a Windows 10 computer. For us to isolate the issue further, kindly provide more details by answering the following questions:

    • Have you made any recent changes to your PC?
    • Have you formatted the hard drive prior to transferring the backup files?

    Just a heads up, if the Mac hard drive was not formatted before using it with a Windows 10 PC, it has been suggested to some users to obtain a third party software to be able to access a Mac-formatted drive in File Explorer on your computer. This is not
    advisable to some due to the fact that there are some programs that won't run the files in the same manner.

    We look forward to your reply so we can assist you further.

    File Transfers between Mac and PC

    After upgrading to Windows 10 - file transfers from my Mac to the Pc are being written as a Hidden file. I've changed to the properties of the folder containing these to show hidden files but I can't find the option to change so that they are transferred
    and available to all users.
