Dropbox - Home - Secure backup, sync and sharing made easy.

A new and well praised service. I got an invitation for beta so I installed it on two computers. It is simple and unobtrusive. What I don't like currently (but that's the next thing for developers, according to their list of tasks) is that it installs a folder in My Documents and only synchronizes that folder. I don't want to rearrange files and folders that I want synchronized/backed up now that I already have backups/syncs arranged with SyncToy and an external hard drive.
If another solution (VPN) works out, then I'll probably use Unison again. It is effective over the network as it uses rsync and it's easy to start the server via telnet. That's quite the solution I like.
