  1. I doubt iCloud will provide anything for “free” as you’ll have to sign up.
    Music stored remotely is indeed convenient (I have a sever @home that streams my music library) but i quickly hit the data volume limit …

  2. #2 is incorrect! With DropBox you DO have the ability to selectively select which folders and files are backed up and synced, UGH! Stellar review.

    1. Thanks for the correction, rob. I will update the post. I originally couldn’t figure out how to select folders to sync outside of the Dropbox folder and I came across this Lifehacker article which showed a tedious way to get around the limitation: http://lifehacker.com/5154698/.....box-folder

      Dropbox has now apparently introduced the ability to choose which folders to sync, but it doesn’t seem intuitive or central to the service at all. Specifically, from the Dropbox site:

      1. Click on the Dropbox icon from the menu bar.
      2. Select Preferences.
      3. Click the Advanced tab.
      4. Click the Selective Sync button.

      With SugarSync, the ability to “Add Folders to SugarSync” is central to the service, which I prefer.

      Still, good to know. Thanks!
