I have been searching the 'Net to no avail - is there any way I can access a private folder over a home network? I have a private folder on my desktop that I would like to access over my network, but don't want others to be able to access it. All of our computers (desktop, laptop, netbook) are all on the same homegroup. Thanks.

You can make it a workgroup shared folder with a password for you. You need to right click on the folder and under sharing tab allow sharing for just you and then the same in the security tab. It will not be accessible to anyone (even you) under the homegroup.
