    What I want is a free place to store all of my documents online that preferably would automatically sync back up to the web server once I edited the file(s). I know theres FolderShare that Microsoft acquired that seems to function the way I want however, it does not save to web but rather sets a computer of your own as the file server. I know there is box.net and a series of others but the ones I've looked at don't seem to be sync capable (correct me if I'm wrong) and there is mozy.com but that seems to be more geared to pure backup where as I am going to be constantly working with the files. Essentially I want a place where I can store all my documents so that I can access them anywhere there is internet. And then when I get back to my my own computer the files will be there on the server ready for me to download and edit at home and so on (you get the idea). So any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    It also seems that Google is coming out with their own online backup solution in 2008. I'm optimistic about that but there are no real details. Besides which, I need something now.

    Thanks for the reply but I'm looking for a free solution and .Mac is not free.
