Transfer Files Over WiFi from PC to Mac?
So my desktop PC is running Windows 7, and my new MacBook Air (just bought it today! Squee!) is running Lion.
I have about 20GB of files I want to transfer onto my Air, but my external hard drive has already been formatted for Time Machine, so that's not an option.
Also for future use I would just like to have them networked, especially so I can use the printer that is setup through my PC via my MacBook Air.
Can anyone help with this? I've been scouring teh googlez all night to no avail.

I set up my pc to share the drives I needed access to, and then did the Mac equivalent of mapping the drive to my MBA. When I go to Finder, it shows in Shared, and all I had to do was enter the password.
The Mac equivalent of mapping the drive was the hard part, IIRC, but I found the solution by doing the search on that term "map drive from pc to Mac."
