    Question Nexus 5 as Network Drive

    Is there anyway i can use my Nexus 5 to access files on my Laptop and vice versa over wi-fi.

    (I know this question has been probably posted a dozen times but i don't wanna look all over the internet for possible answers when i can just come here and get expert advice)

    Since you don't want to put any effort in finding the answer for yourself, I'm not going to bother to tell you how.

    I was going to NOT tell you how, since you didn't bother to look all over the internet.

    But since you call me an expert, I change my mind.

    I use ES File Explorer File Manager to set up a LAN communication between the phone and a computer. Even better, the app also lets you access cloud services.

    The computer company I worked for uses 2X. They connect to their desktop and run apps that displays on their Android or IOS device. The IT Dept even uses 2X as the console to control, reboot and back up about 30 big IBM servers all from their Android or IOS phones.

    There are a ton of these at the Play Store.

    However I just keep my computer records (Word and Speadsheets) on and then I can access them from either the PC or my Nexus 5 or 7.
