This tutorial will show you how to stream audio or video files, as well as how to transfer files between your PC (Windows XP, 7, 8 or 8.1) and your Android Phone. This solution is using Wi-Fi connection, therefore you need to connect both of your devices (computer and phone) to the same Wi-Fi network (usually, you home network). This will use the sharing function from Windows (unsecured – no password protected).
All you need for this is:
- PC/Laptop/Tablet with Windows XP or above.

I am using a Raspberry Pi in a museum with an information intranet site loaded. We have two Pis with the same details. From time to time we need to update the site with new exhibits/information. I create the SD cards for the Pi using disk imaging from a master that I keep at home. The problem is that each time I update the site the size of the disk image roughly doubles (started at about 2Gb, now at 15Gb). I am using Raspbian GNU/Linux 7. I have deleted the contents of the trash folder. Any ideas as to how I can reduce the size of the created images?

Therefore I started looking for the password somewhere into my computer (if it automatically connects, then the password must be stored somewhere). And it was super simple to find it… Read More
If you ever asked a question on this site and you needed to backup your data after OS failure I tend to encourage your to create a bootable USB or DVD with some linux distribution that has “live” option. This means that you are able to operate your computer and access your files from your hardware without make any change to your currently operating system (OS).
For example, you have a PC running Windows 7 operating system and you recently have installed a new driver for one of your PC components/devices. You are asked to restart your PC and after you do that you get the blue screen and you are not able to load your Windows any more. You really need to access one of the files from your PC. What can be done? Read More
