Transfer files from desktop to laptop
I have just got a new laptop and I want to install Ubuntu 9.10 on it. My desktop PC has 8.10 and has all my videos/music/docs. I would like a fast way of transferring all my files across without too much fuss.
I don't really want to go out and buy a portable hard drive or anything as cash is pretty limited right now. Both computers have a connection to my router so I have considered a network share but is there any other way to transfer all my files to my laptop? I only have about 2 GB HDD space left on my desktop machine so I cant install anything huge.
I am quite used to SFTP but I'm not sure about using it for my entire home folder as I have had it stall on me in the past when transferring big files.
