Hmm, is there no driver to let you map a directory on one machine to a 
drive letter on the other? (and if not, is anyone aware of independent 
software to do this?).

I think that's probably what I really need, rather than some browser tool, 
then I can write my own code if needs be to transfer data (to potentially 
work around problems with corrupted filesystems, marginal sectors etc. on 
ailing drives)

Laplink cable wired up now. Might get time today to try it out...
