Ubuntu One allows you to do this with a global configuration file. On Linux, a section of the configuration file ~/.config/ubuntuone/syncdaemon.conf allows you to specify Python regular expressions to be ignored. A similar configuration file exists on other platforms.

My understanding is that Dropbox only ships deltas over the network. This page claims that the deltas are the only thing transmitted: Efficient sync: only the pieces of a file that changed (not the whole file) are synced. This saves you time.

Google Drive, Gmail, and Google+ Photos give you 15 GB of storage space for free. This storage limit only applies to "full-size uploads" (bigger than 2048x2048px) added when you upload photos on your desktop or with Auto Backup on your Android device. Any photos you upload less than 2048px (or that you let Google+ resize for you) won't count against your ...

It is not as easy as Dropbox or similar services for that purpose. The free accounts can only have public repositories, so you would also need to pay to keep your private documents on there. Dropbox and such do provide this for free. The more public nature of Github makes me assume takedowns would be more frequent for illegal content sharing. It is not ...

Windows Live Mesh does this, and it's free. I've used it for sync'ing large projects of source code between my office and home office, and it worked very nicely. It operates via the "cloud" (i.e. it gives you free online storage), and you can specify which devices you want to connect to that cloud repository.

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.

From Wikipedia: Office Live Workspace is currently not supported on Office 2010. In May 2010, it was announced that Office Live Workspace customers would be moved to Microsoft's SkyDrive service, which offers 25GB of storage and the ability to view and edit documents through Office Web Apps.

Ask an important question of yourself. Do you need backup or online replica? Sound similar, but they're not the same thing. Backup services enable you to revert to older versions of files e.g you accidentally save changes to a file, backups enable you to recover deleted files, backups enable you to permanently archive files safe in the knowledge you can ...

Well you could as you say create a new account to put the data in, the other option is Google Vault. I assume they are not a new customer, in which case wait until this service is available for existing customer pre August 2012. With Vault, users can delete email from their inbox when it starts getting full, Google vault retains all email and does not have ...

The easiest way, which still uses the Blogger interface for uploading, is to sign up for 2nd Google account, and give that account author (or even administrator) rights to your blog: this works for now because Google account storage limits are per account, not per flesh-and-blood person. It may have some downsides, though, if you want to be a verified ...

No. For that particular feature you might want to consider Dropbox. Take a look at this comparison: http://techsplurge.com/3485/dropbox-amazon-cloud-drive-detailed-comparison/ To share your files: Go to Your Cloud Drive. Select the check box next to the file you want to share. Click Share from the More Actions drop-down menu, and then copy the URL. You ...

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.

This is not the intended purpose of github. It's intended for management/perusal of software source-code (and related assets). Please also see this article: https://help.github.com/articles/what-is-my-disk-quota For standard online storage, I would look at Dropbox, SkyDrive, Google Drive, Amazon S3, or an online backup solution.

I mean is it possible to delete a file in the Drive folder without getting it deleted from the Drive. Yes: Uninstall the Google Drive software from your machine. Do all future uploads to www.drive.google.com manually Under this approach, you can upload from folders on your machine with any name that you like (including Drive). But there will not be ...

Answer from GitHub: Working with large files While git is terrific for a great number of use cases, it has trouble with large files. If you are pushing large files to GitHub, you might want to evaluate your workflow to make sure those files are truly necessary. Game assets, such as graphics, might be required for your repository, while SQL ...

I suppose you can. Wikipedia states the following: share files with unregistered users, through a keyed hyperlink As long as you use the 'keyed hyperlink', you should be ok. Users on Wuala's support forum back this up: Das ist schon ok. Wenn ein File zu oft abgefragt wird, gibt es aber eine Bandbreitenbeschränkung im Webinterface. Translated: ...

A workaround from google (last dot point under 'solutions') is to use mail delegation to allow one email account to access two inboxes: The next workaround involves setting up mail delegation to create a new account for the user but with the ability to switch to view messages in an archive account. To do this: Rename the primary account ...

The GMail docs specifically mention that you should avoid having a catch-all account. I assume that you have a Google Apps for Business account, so your best alternative is going to be breaking up your submissions into separate target accounts (citydesk@, photos@, whatever). You can also use a Google Group to capture the email submissions. This makes ...

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.

Making a private password protected blog on posterous.com (no, I'm not being paid by them nor am I trolling!) is a great way to share videos in an attractive and practical way. Students can also comment on the videos and develop conversations etc around the videos which is a but nicer and more aesthetically pleasing than just using a Dropbox link. Also, ...

Seriously, your description and your questions are unrelated. You cannot compare Google tracking, any big government plot and using any online storage. I will retain your question because it is interesting though. You can encrypt your data before sending them to the cloud. Several services offer all-in-one solution like Secret Sync described by How-To ...

I use Dropbox to backup and sync files. It's available cross-platform which is handy as I use it on Windows, Ubuntu, and Mac machines. They give you 2GB free, and charge for anything more than that. Box.net has similar features.

I think this review of back-up/cloud storage services might help: http://online-data-backup-review.toptenreviews.com/index.html I personally use SugarSync for short-term repositories (their feature set is a bit richer than that of DropBox) and Mozy (which as far as I understand uses a highly-efficient differential/delta system) for large files and ...

You can try Windows Live Skydrive, there are desktop interfaces for it, such as Gladinet Cloud Desktop or SDExplorer. There is also: Sugarsync Zumodrive
