I have been working on an Orchard based site using Microsoft WebMatrix on my main computer (using localhost to edit), and would like to move it to my laptop so I can present my website for a class project.  Is there a way in which I can move the site to another machine or do I have redo the entire thing on that machine or pay for some web hosting just to access it on my laptop?

If you've been using SqlCE, it's as simple as copying the folder. If you've been using the full SQL, you'd have to also backup and restore the DB, and change the connection string in app_data/sites/default/settings.txt

Thanks a lot, I realized that the first time I tried it I botched the file transfer but with your response I tried again and it worked perfectly!
