    Dropbox is really nice, works very well with Nautilus. There's also Spider Oak and Ubuntu One.

    Great if you need to have instant sharing of LOTS of files between a few machines. As far as storage goes, I have external drives and a bunch of thumb drives for that.

    Personally I wouldn't trust it without first heavily encrypting the data.

    IF you have something worth encrypting.

    From the Dropbox website.

    Do you honestly believe that your Dropbox files are inaccesible? That if the police came with a court order to produce the contents of a dropbox, the admins wouldn't be able to give them your files?

    I think the admins of a Dropbox are able to access what they like. Just because they say they can't, doesn't convince me.
