    I am looking for a Dropbox alternative which is exactly like iDisk or at least ZumoDrive. I don't like Dropbox because it stores files locally. It can't be web Based because I need to be able to save to it like a folder.
    I have tried Wuala, but it doesn't seem like a good permanent solution because of the small amount of free space. Also, I want something more macish like iDisk than Wuala, if you know what I mean.

    - :)

    EDIT: with box.net and transmit, i mounted a box.net network drive with WebDAV. That works ok. still looking for better solutions tho! and pricing on box.net for business just me so i can get terabyte is great priced!

    I am not 100% sure what you are looking for. I *THINK* you want something like dropbox... but to NOT have the files stored locally... and just be on the web. However, I *THINK* you want to be able to access them as if they are in a folder on your computer.

    If so... then Dropbox has the option to have folders NOT be stored locally. They will not be on your computer at all (saving space), but they will still be in the cloud. However, to access the data, you must use the web interface.

    For more info, search the dropbox site. This is called "Selective Sync". https://www.dropbox.com/help/175

    Another option is "sugarsync". I have not tried it, so I cannot comment.
