I have been using Dropbox for some time now.  The program installs very easily and works very well.  I have used it to synchronize information among several computers in different locations.  It also syncs information to an iPhone, an Internet connected iPod Touch and an Internet connected iPad.  Loading information  into Dropbox takes no effort, after you have installed Dropbox on your computer, it will place a Dropbox folder for your use.  Simply drag and drop the files you want to sync into the Dropbox folder and Dropbox will  automatically upload them to its server (assuming your computer is on line).  If your computer is not on line, Dropbox will upload the files the next time the computer is on line. All of your other devices will also sync automatically if they are on line or, if not, the next time that they go on line.

You can sign up for Dropbox at www.dropbox.com.  They give you a 2GB account free.  If you need more space, you can upgrade to a 50GB account for $9.99 per month or $99 per year.  You can also upgrade to a 100GB account if you need even more space.  The 100GB account costs $19.99 per month or $199 per year.

You can also use Dropbox to share files by setting up a folder for sharing and then putting the information you want to share in it.  You provide the email addresses of those who you want to have access the the files and Dropbox notifies them of the shared folder and tells them how to access it.  When they do, if they also set up their own Dropbox account, you get some additional free space added to your account.

Dropbox  lives in the clouds and works equally well with the Mac OS and Windows.
