Hello,

Yes, there are two options for you, create a Homegroup by following this Tutorial from Microsoft.

Or....a must convenient way is to use Skydrive, and you may access your files remotely anywhere and anytime.

Hope this helps. :)

2xg thanks but they are like 8gb files. I'm just stunned you cannot connect via usb and just drag files across. I suppose I will have to buy a thumbstick when I get time

Homegroup might work for you, it can be a little hassle setting it up or buy a reasonable Network Attached Storage (NAS) so that you may store more files. There's a wired (connected to your router's ethernet port) or wireless NAS to choose from.
