Dropbox supports sharing content across multiple accounts. On the Dropbox website, using the account you wish to share from, create a new folder (e.g. "my project") In the top toolbar, select "Invite to folder", enter the email addresses for the recipients (make sure it's the email they already use for their Dropbox account). Each recipient will get an ...

They haven't outright banned it so I think it's safe to say that you are allowed to host websites on Dropbox. There is a wiki page, "Hosting Websites with Dropbox", (that includes information that was hosted on the official Dropbox wiki section) about how you could set it up via CNAME pointing. If you are worried about bandwidth, see Arash F. post on the ...

You can now host static Web applications using the static web app console that was released with dropbox.js. The dropbox.js release announcement has a bit more detail, and points to a sample application.

Unfortunately yes. The request to resolve this issue is pretty high in the Dropbox Votebox. Please vote for it. You could try alternatives to Dropbox like Wuala or SpiderOak. In these applications the shared space is taken only from the user that started the sharing. The privacy features are better too.

The whole purpose of the site is to get people to download programs bundled with adware/spyware/malware etc. There are plenty of user submitted ratings of the site on Web of Trust: http://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/lp.ilivid.com I would think they got their impressive Alexa ranking through browser exploits from people that downloaded files from their site. ...

The simplest solution I can think of is to set both of their Share settings to "View" or "Comment". This will prevent either from editing the document. But my guess is that you are looking for something more like the restricting of "adding" or "removing" by a valid editor. This is also changeable in the "Share Setting" but affects all those the document is ...

I'd suggest using something like Flickr. Your guests would need to have accounts, but if they use Yahoo, they should already be able to log in. Flickr saves the original copy as well as provides smaller copies, so you can pick and choose. You should create an open group and let your guests upload to that group.

This isn't answering the question exactly, but why no registration? Once you have registered with something like Dropbox, everything is basically one-click. You could use a disposable email address to register if that's a problem. You get 2GB total storage on the free account and no individual file size limit. You can sync between computers or make certain ...

Without using any kind of API, from where you'll probably able to get the e-mail of your shared folders, you can check the e-mail from the web interface. Since there is no such thing as contact list here, you can do the following: Login to Dropbox.com Go to Sharing tab Enter any folder and click on Shared folder options button Once you're there click on ...

Coming directly from the FAQ, yes, you are able to - using a secret link. Q: Can I share folders with contacts who do not use Wuala? A: Yes, of course. Simply create a secret link and send it to your contact.

I dont think this is possibly in Dropbox although it is on the wishlist for Dropbox (https://www.dropbox.com/votebox/14/analytics-statistics-for-public-files) So yes you would need another service for this goal. There are thousands of different possibilities. Just a cheap one: install WordPress and install one of the "download" plugins: that will give you ...

If you're asking how to have a folder synchronized without having the location of the folder within your Google Drive folder, you can do so with Symlinks. The program mentioned in that article, Link Shell Extension, is a great way to do this if you're either uncomfortable with the command line, or if you're doing most of your folder operations in explorer.

One service meet your requirements is Filemail. The Corporate plan allows you to send up to 25GB files over SSL. Here is a list of file sending apps: http://www.howtosendlargefiles.com/

You're going to have to relax atleast couple of those restrictions. Security + Sharing + Multiple devices + Easy - I doubt any service exists which meets all of your criteria. Having said that, SpiderOak is probably the closest that comes to meeting your requirements.

Well, if they don’t have access to the 100GB Dropbox account, how could they upload anything to it? As for sharing the files, you could use Google Drive. See the How to share man page for instructions. Also, if you need this for a limited period of time and you don’t want/like Google Drive, you could use the free trial option of YouSendIt.

There are lots of options for this. Here are 2 that i use that i can recommend. DropBox is the simplest, after installing an agent on your Mac/PC/iPhone etc, it allows you to share a folder on your hard drive with other people, and updates automatically in the background. Sub-folders can be created. It's free to get started, with more space available at a ...

Looking for this also, apparently it's under development or still being considered as an option to be build later since October 2010. Be sure to make your 'suggestion' here by marking that you have the problem too: microsoft answers Add a feedback suggestion here: http://feedback.live.com/ that describes your issue. I think this is the best way to get ...

You might setup a new account in the name of the project as a kind of 'master' account to keep the shared files under the control of the team, not any one individual, then using the web interface manage the folder sharing. This way the shared files will be synced to your account automatically (no need to mess with multiple desktop accounts). But otherwise, ...

Okay I had the same problems. Here's what you do. Create a folder structure under your google apps docs account. For example Admin Website Library Meetings WIP Then select ONE folder by ticking the box next to that folder. Then edit the sharing settings and manually add one person in your domain and click "send this person an email" Once they get the ...

Not really a web app as such but you might want to look at Opera Unite; http://unite.opera.com/applications/ Specifically the stream media application; http://unite.opera.com/application/322/ Stream video and audio to your friends right in browser. Hope this helps

I am also seeking for easy ways to provide quick and encrypted file sharing for third parties, like customers sending sensitive data. besides varies cloud alternative sync solutions, other than dropbox. I was looking for a server daemon which offers easy encrypted upload solutions: Nephthys seems to have manage an easy WebDav-configuration which can be ...

Of course it's safe, they just crawl your site, collect links and locate the files on their own. Afterall, everyone who will download through that link will somehow bring free traffic to your site. If I did not reply in full, you can read more on their help pages.

You can send an unlimited number of files per month. Single file size is limited to 300 MB for the free service with an unlimited transfer limit. Source: SendGenie Admin

I wouldn't use Dropbox to host content because it will stop serving the resource if it's used too much: We watch carefully for any fraudulent use of Dropbox public links and will suspend suspicious links when they are detected. Links that use up more than 10GB/day for Basic (free) accounts and 250GB/day for Pro (paid) accounts are automatically ...

What do you mean by 'trust'? I'll assume you're talking about data loss. If you are talking about data backups and preventing loss of data, you need to take responsibility for backing up your data. You can count on the company you are paying to do their best, but you have no real idea what their best IS until the feces hits the fan, at which point it's a ...
