    Hi,
    I have windows 7 on my PC and WP8.1 on my phone. I'd like to access the shared files on PC to be accessible to my phone through lan. Is there any way to do so? I have team viewer but it is not the same thing as getting the file to your phone straight.

    When I was on android I used to do that with ES explorer. I have full version of pocket file manager but it doesn't have that option. :/

    Any way to access that?

    Does it allow lan transfers? They are my priority coz of speed.

    If you mean accessing files that are in shared folders on the PC, try Sharefolder Explorer (formerly Sharefolders). That allows access to Windows Share and SMB shares over your network.

    Try Tonido. Install it on your PC also and you can have a private network and access files from PC :)
    Read this and see if it fulfills your need.

    That's exactly what I'm using too. Way better than using cloud based services or remote desktop applications.

    can anyone tell which one is better, tonido or bit torrent sync, and how they are different?
    With bit torrent sync nothing is stored on their severs, if I'm not wrong. but what is the case with tonido? which is better to stream and access files from anywhere(when you're not in the same network)?

    Great to d/l pics from phone or up/l music without using USB cable. This should be built into WP. Costs $2 after a month.

    Which isn't much considering all the features. The only thing I'm missing from it is support for video playback.

    Even that for me seems to work - I have various .mp4 video files on my NAS box (and occasionally on my netbook too) which are in SMB shares, and Sharefolders quite happily sees them and if I select them they play fine on my HTC 8X. So either I'm lucky or have the right file formats etc picked as playing videos that way works (or at least it did last time I tried it, which admittedly was a while ago as I tend to use my Wii and the telly to do such things when I'm home).
