Couple of Best sites for Free Online Storage

Couple of Best sites for Free Online Storage

Dropbox

www.dropbox.com

Dropbox is barely two years old and yet it's quickly become the file-sharing option of choice for many web users. Certainly, once you start using this excellent service, you'll wonder how you managed to survive without it. So, what's so good about Dropbox? The answer is focus and simplicity". While other online storage services we've reviewed here pile complexity into their synchronization options, Dropbox's proposition is a single folder that's synchronized across all computers associated with the same Dropbox account.

This means you can simply install the software, and then throw some files and folders into the My Dropbox folder to upload them to the Dropbox server. Then, open the My Dropbox folder on a second PC and the files appear as soon as they've downloaded. You can also access the content via your web browser. Any number of devices can be associated with a Dropbox account including most modern smartphones -and 2GB of storage space is included with free accounts, Add in file-versioning (where older versions of files are accessible via the web interface) and some basic file-sharing facilities and you'll find Dropbox is hard to beat.
How it can be improved:

Selective synchronization - letting you choose which files to update - would make Dropbox even more appealing. This feature already exists but currently only in the beta version, which you can grab from the forums (http://forum5.dropbox.com).
IDrive Basic

www.idrive.com

To get the most out of IDrive, you need to use two distinct tools - IDrive Classic and IDrive Explorer. The former, a backup component is the means by which you put files on the site. The latter, while optional, is actually the better tool because it turn$ the free 2GB of online storage space that I Drive gives you into a virtual drive and lets you access content through Windows Explorer. But because I Drive Explorer can only be used for restoring files, you need to use IDrive Classic to put files on the site In the first place. Regardless of this convoluted set-up, the two tools work well together and. by selecting the Continuous Backup mode in IDrive Classic you can keep information permanently synchronized to IDrive's servers. Backed-up files can also be accessed from the IDrive web interface, so you can get at them from anywhere. Sadly, there are no options for sharing your files with other people.
How it can be improved:

Rather than maintaining two separate tools for the same service, IDrive should combine them. It would also be good to be able to drag and drop files to and from the IDrive Explorer virtual drive.
