Ubuntu Windows 7 File Sharing

Hi, sorry for newbie question. I’m totally new with Linux as well as Ubuntu.

Currently, I’m using Ubuntu LEMP stack and Wordpress.

My question is, how to share file/folder from my ubuntu server to windows 7 ? This will make my backup task more easier.

I found this guy in this video doing the same exactly what I want for. -

So, how to make connection between Windows 7 and my ubuntu server ?

Sounds noob right ? Sorry I’m totally newbie
