    im not interested in controlling my desktop from my bb, i only want to be able to access what is stored on the hard drive. I take it you never have a few computers networked together, and had a shared folder that lets the files contained be accessed from any pc on the network, with out having to control it

    RDM+ has the functionality of accessing just the hard drive without remote controlling if you so want. It has several features, remote controlling and drives access are two.
    Splashtop is only available on the playbook, on the blackberry side. The phones have yet to receive any remote control application worthy of the "good" title. RDM+ although its probably the best (out of like 3 or 4 sadly), its expensive and doesn't compare to applications in other platforms.

    It's pretty easy to do without any apps. There is an article on the Blackberry blog that tells you how to do it without an app. Can't post links (under 10 posts!) but paste the following together to get the link:
    http :// helpblog.blackberry.com /2011/06 /playbook-copy-files/

    Used it yesterday and worked fine.

    Hope this is what you're after.

    If you are on BES, you can access Windows machines on the corporate network just by going through the OS6/7 built-in "Files" app.

    Will this work in reverse?. The op is.talking about viewing windows files from his blackberry. Plus they don't mention if they want to do it with the PB or a phone.
