Windows Live SkyDrive I just noticed a new link when checking my hotmail this morning, to "Windows SkyDrive". Microsoft are offering 5GB worth of free online storage. It works with Windows or Mac with Firefox or Internet Explorer.

There are personal, shared and world folder options. File transfers are SSL-protected. What I found particularly interesting is that you can use the shared folders to colloborate with colleagues and set permissions for each person on a folder level. Nice angle :-)

I'm getting tired of emailing stuff between work and home. I'm also tired of getting down under my desk fumbling with a flash stick, so I think I'll give this a test drive for a while.

You can learn more here.

On the subject of file backup, sharing and storage ...

Online backup is becoming common these days. It is estimated that 70-75% of all PC's will be connected to online backup services with in the next decade.

Thousands of online backup companies exist, from one guy operating in his apartment to fortune 500 companies.

Choosing the best online backup company will be very confusing and difficult. One website I find very helpful in making a decision to pick an online backup company is:

This site lists more than 400 online backup companies in its directory and ranks the top 25 on a monthly basis.
