BobsListOfOnlineFileStorageAndCollaborationServices

Bob's list of Online File Storage and Collaboration Services

Posted by ClifNotes, May 2008, permalink Web Service

 

Bob Constans was kind enough to share a list of online services he's been gleaning from different sources. It's not a complete list, but he's taken the time to try some and offer his recommendations.

 

If you need to share files or work on files with a group, this is a good place to start looking.

 

Thanks Bob!

 

From Bob via email:

I figured that I'd better send you this before the info becomes out-of-date. LOL

 

It's a pretty basic list. I hope you don't mind having to maybe clean it up or format it to taste a little or hey, give it a permanent page.
