i just heard about it and installed it on my NC10. the advantage is i can keep 2gb on this virtual drive and it will automatically update the file between the my sammy and the desktop at home.
i’m pretty sure they both need to have internet connection to function and the account is free up to 2gb.January 28, 2009 at 10:27 pm #181703Mat-MooMember
Don’t think that is the correct domain name… However I’m using Microsoft Live Mesh service (beta) http://www.mesh.com which seems to do the same, and is wokring very well for me 🙂 Very nice to edit files on my main pc then have the smae files all uptodate on here, and visa-versa.January 28, 2009 at 10:29 pm #181695SerendipMember
Perhaps a mod can fix the link, the one in the subject header directs you to a held GoDaddy! page.
The correct is: http://www.getdropbox.com
I don’t know anything about the program… sounds like it could be interesting!
What I really really want is some way to sync one of my email accounts between computers. I use Thunderbird, and other than copying the emails to a USB drive and then pasting into a created subfolder and moving them from there, I haven’t found anything. (Windows Live Sync caused all sorts of duplicate files, deleted key ones… it was a mess.) Anyone have any ideas? (Oh… my non-Sammy computer is a Mac!)January 28, 2009 at 11:01 pm #181697BritmanMember
Asus has a similar service called estorage but you get 20GB.January 28, 2009 at 11:57 pm #181694dougpMember

One way is to leave the mail on the server so both pick it up. I have my main computer set to leave mail on the server for a few days before deleting it, and my NC10 set to not delete mail from the server at all. This way I get my email on both machines.
The one thing you don’t get this way is sent email. If you need to make sure both machines have something you’ve sent, Bcc: it to yourself and filter it into a folder.

::whispers:: Don’t forget the dog!
ObTopic: When I want to be able to edit a file from multiple computers, I put it on the flash drive I always have with me. Then I can work with the latest version whether or not my NC10 has an Internet connection. (Which, unfortunately, is more often not. :(January 29, 2009 at 7:51 pm #181699AlfiharParticipant

Have you checked to make sure you can’t use IMAP to access your emails rather than POP3, as IMAP will synchronise with the mail server rather than downloading straight from it.January 29, 2009 at 9:07 pm #181704CarpetboyMember
Or you can use Gmail and forward all your mail to that gmail account, I think I have around 10 active mail addys but everything is brought together in one gmail addy.January 29, 2009 at 9:39 pm #181705miserlyMember
thanks for getting the link fixed. also, mesh looks like it does the same thing. i’ll have to check them out as well.January 30, 2009 at 7:38 am #181701mossmotorsportMember
I also use Mesh (http://www.mesh.com) which does the job perfectly – however I might give this a shotJanuary 31, 2009 at 11:32 am #181700dennisMember
Thanks! Dropbox works great (Mesh probably too); just create account, drop the files you want to sync into the “dropbox’-map and that’s all!November 30, 2009 at 6:00 am #181696riffraffMember

I’ve just started using Dropbox and Mozy for free (though limited) online file backup, and both seem quite easy to use and helpful. I’ve even set my GF’s office up with both.
I’ll add, and I hope no one minds a wee bit of whoring, that if anyone clicks the below referral links, we both get free extra storage when using both services… 🙂
