    Is it possible to share internal hard drive over network


    I was wondering if it was possible to share an internal hard drive over the homegroup network or any other possible way that I can view video files on it on my tv?

    That is the design of the software for you to be able to. File/Folder sharing has been around since the days of Windows 3.1 for Workgroups.
