Use box, dropbox, etc as a remote server?

I have a macbook pro with a solid state drive that is limited. I was curious if I could use box, dropbox, crashplan or some other service to create a folder that in effect acts as a remote disk. I want to be able to drag and drop files but I do not want their footprint to be local at all and instead reside on the server. (Of course if I ever want to view the file I know that I will have to download it locally.) Is there anyway to have this functionality without setting up a remote server that I log into? I'd be fine if it would keep a folder local until it had to upload it, I just want something that is pretty seamless.

Thanks!

Get a Transporter? It's just like Dropbox but you have 100% control over it.

I just heard of a transporter recently because of their merge with drobo. It looks pretty cool.
