have you started using it yet biox ?
was wondering how it works... thinking that it would nicely hold my photos with a bit of room to spare ;)
sorry, cant help you on laptop
Had it running last night and it did upload 1.5GB, the plan was 8.1GB. I find their upload application a bit awkward to use as to non-resizeable settings window (rather small) and a very fast scrolling log. I know that I can read the log later on but then there are 3-4 hours wasted if something went wrong. I'm running an incremental backup now in an attempt to get the remaining folders over there.

I've been using DropBoks for quite a while now, I barely put anything on there but when I do it is really nice and convenient. It is all small files, and I don't take the time to upload GB of stuff I'll probably never touch again, so it works for me.

I'm using dropbox, and its working great for what I wanted, lets me run a couple of programs from either my laptop or desktop, I can keep currently active documents there, so will be available wherever and whichever computer I am using.  Just what i wanted, tho I know some want storage I just wanted a more or less temporary place to have access to current stuff.  :)

I've given up on it for now. There's a 1k files per session limit and that's simply a bit too cumbersome. I'll try later again when I've got more time. Right now it's mid-term-test for 120 eager-to-learn-Maths-students  :D I'll try dropbox too. :Thmbsup:
