Notice that you can edit files remotely with emacs using tramp.
You need a network connection between the computer running emacs and the
computer where the files are stored, and a ssh server on the computer
where the files are stored.  Then you can open files there from here,
using C-x C-f /ssh:address@hidden:/path/to/the/file RET
