I've never tried this file synching service. It allows you to share designated files and folders across the internet with another computer. Here's what KK, one of your fellow readers, says about FileShare.

 

I also use FolderShare a lot. It's easy to set up works great. I use it as a failsafe with my home network for sharing info between 3 computers. Sometimes I have issues with an xp home computer accessing my 2 xp pro's. It will come in handy when my son goes off to college in a couple of weeks. Not being as geeky as me, my shared folder of updates for him will automatically be synced on his machine 200 miles away. Obviously FolderShare has to be running on machines that one wants to sync. They allow quite a bit of file capacity to be synched for free. There is a once a week nag screen in the free version but it's worth it for me. I use it manually instead of letting it load at startup.

 

Quote - FolderShare is a service that allows you to securely keep files synchronized between your devices, share files with friends or colleagues, and remotely download your files from any web browser. FolderShare consists of two components - My FolderShare and the FolderShare Satellite.
