    Love Drop Box, I can imagine a time in the near future where I would happily subscribe to a service like this for £5 a month. It's just so useful, definitely the future of storage.

    Re: News - Dropbox comes of age with version 1.0 release

    I've been using it for ages, had to give up on it sadly. I need a system where I can select which folders to sync, rather than just one special "sync" folder, and I need to selectively sync various users files across multiple computers, but not all of them across all computers.

    In a way though, if Dropbox catered for that, it would lose some of its charm. The nicest thing about it is how simple it is.

    If you read the article snootyjim they are certainly moving that way. Future revisions may very well allow that kind of control. While I agree with what you're saying about it's beauty is it's simplicity I don't necessary think they need to destroy the simplicity, just have that as default and a method of accessing and "advanced" mode where all these options are available if the user requires them.

    Yeah I did read the article, just saying that it's moving into an awkward spot - it isn't as capable as competitors, and it risks losing the simplicity that's so nice.

    I agree with you, they need to split it into two pieces of software or at least introduce some kind of complexity toggle.
