    app to access network shared folders?

    does anyone know if there is an app or a way to setup my xoom to access shared folders and files at my work?



    i have a vpn connection setup and a remote desktop app that works well. it would just be very handy to have some network shares available as well.



    if anyone has any ideas i would appreciate them.

    If you have the remote desktop then why something else? If you can freely move the files at work you can make a dropbox account. Install on pc at work and xoom, log in with same account on both, and there you go. Just upload any file to dropbox and then your xoom can pull it off of there or vice versa.

    File Manager HD allows you to connect to shares that use SMB

    Yep, one of the reasons I really don't use Dropbox that much. The other being my concern of managing personal files on network storage I really don't have full security control of.
