Default Do It Yourself Dropbox-Like Capability For Sharing Files

"Dropbox, when it's working and you feel good about it, is that kind of advanced technology that's indistinguishable from magic. You drop a file into a folder, and it's available on the web, on your other machines, and on your phone, often with multiple version backups. But the curtain has been drawn back on Dropbox's conjury lately, with Terms of Service (TOS) changes, a brief but scary any-password-opens-any-account moment, and then another TOS change that left many confused."

Our regular readers will know that we have posted about Dropbox and similar services before. In some circumstances you may be interested in "going it alone" and mimicking Dropbox features with other tools and service offerings. The ITWorld website has a posting which suggests a couple of ways you could accomplish this using Windows Live SkyDrive and Goodsync.  The approaches are not too difficult to follow, and could be just what you need.
