does your laptop have a vga output or dvi output? You can hook an external monitor to it see the video. From there you would need to share the folders that you want.
If you have no video outputs on it and don't have remote desktop your out of luck as far as I know. You might just take the drive out of the computer and put it in a usb enclosure and then plug it into your workstation.
