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.

I use Dropbox which gives you 2Gb free. You can get up to 8Gb free space by introducing friends. They also offer a paid service: 50 Gb $9.99 / month or $99.00 / year 100 Gb $19.99 / month or $199.00 / year You can share folders out and anything put in the dropbox folders gets synced automatically. There are Mobile Apps for iPhone, Android, Blackberry ...

Dropbox does exactly what you want.

Trello FAQ says: There is a 10mb file upload limit per attachment. It's not possible to upload attachments via the mobile site. There is no limit on the number of attachments you can have on a card or board. Neither is there an account data storage limit.

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 ...

The Google Drive folder is a local representation of what files you currently have uploaded into your Google Drive storage. If you delete a file in your Drive folder on your computer, it is reflected on the Drive website.

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.

Could it be possible to store the YouTube 'non-public' video link in dropbox? This will make sure you do not fill the dropbox.

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.

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 ...

So, since you want a free solution here's my thought on Dropbox vs the Microsoft soluiton. Dropbox gives you 2GB of storage, nice client apps for multiple platforms, plus web access to your files. You can share those files with whoever you want. A down side for me is that everything you want to syncronize has to be in a single folder... and sometimes that's ...

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 ...

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.

Unfortunately not, but you can use Foxit reader to open the document, create a bookmark of the page you last read and move the bookmark to the beggining of the bookmark list. So, next time you open the document, just click the bookmark entry you created before :-)

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 ...

Well, not if you're looking for an easy upload from Blogger interface, but there are many free services that you can use, I recommend using SkyDrive or Flickr.

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 ...

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 ...

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.

There is no way to "mount" the dropbox file system so that bookmarks and such are handled exactly as for a local file by the pdf readers ?

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.

Since both services add a folder to your OS you could setup a cron (mac) or scheduled task (windows) with a script that moves files from a pre-determined folder to the dropbox and/or the google drive folder.

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 ...

Yes, it is. Here is a CSS file I just uploaded. It gets categorized as text.

I don't believe it is possible to "unconvert" and retrieve the original version in Google Docs. You can download the Google Docs file as PowerPoint but this will cause another conversion from Google Docs back to PowerPoint.
