Hey guys i was just wondering was anyone able to get file sharing between mac and windows 7 or vise versa? I tried adding the mac protocol on my wireless network settings but i cant see it on the list of protocols. is there another way around this or is file sharing between mac not supported yet on the beta release? thanks in advance.

Windows 7 has not changed the SMB File Sharing protocal from the one that was in Windows Vista.
Should OS X work with Windows Vista then it will work with Windows 7.
The trick is to be sure you have File Sharing turned on at all.
Both Windows Vista and Windows 7 disable File Sharing by default for security reasons.
