DropBox Good Replacement for IDisk

DropBoxOk, maybe I’m late to the party, but I’ve found the solution for those of you using Apple’s iDisk. Let me first to say that I was not a happy camper when I found out that Mac’s new iCloud service would not have the same functionality as iDisk. iDisk was great cause you could sync files on various computer with ease. iCloud is only going to sync Apple products and not allow the user to store things outside of the Apple products.

I live and breathe the world of iStockphoto and ton’s of members use Dropbox for sharing files for critique requests. So, when I started researching an iDisk replacement, I took their satisfaction in consideration.

I loved iDisk for the fact I could drag a file to a folder and the contents would then be copied to the same folder that are on all my other computers, plus I could access the files via my iPhone. DropBox works the same way, plus I have the ability now to give public access to files that I want to share, Nice!

Dropbox offers 2GB for free, and subscriptions up to 100GB available. I purchased 50gigs for $100 per year. Wanna learn More?

I’m still all things Mac, but I’m glad to still have the functionality that I’ve been accustom to, thanks Dropbox.

UPDATE: Wow, you can share a folder with another DropBox customer , the shared file is added to their files and then you have a direct connection to them. That’s cool. Makes it real easy to sen files to clients! Way to go DropBox!
