Not been around for a while - busy doing my PhD and not enough time to play... I have a non-camera orientated question, however I know that you are a knowledgeable lot and thought there maybe others who use cloud storage solutions.
I use a number of different bits of software (Scrivener and EndNote being the main two academic wise) and I need constant access to numerous .pdf journal docs etc that I keep referring to. I use both a laptop and desktop - both mac and currently use the iDisk function of Apple MobileMe to store all files - this system automatically keeps a copy of all files on both computers and the cloud, whilst at the same time it updates all three as and when I have been working on files, so both computers and the cloud always hold the most up to date files. Following the recent keynote by Mr. Jobs, it appears the revamped iCloud will not have the iDisk part that I currently use, or at least there was no mention of it. I'm hoping in due course it will be mentioned - probably as a paid extra (its not free at the moment). However if they get rid of it completely or it's stupidly over priced... I want to be ready with an alternative solution.
Apple have said we all have free MobileMe until the iCloud is fully rolled out in 2012 - I am therefore thinking this gives me time to trial a few alternatives to decide where to go, should I need to - rather than being forced to make a rash knee jerk jump to something that actually does not fulfil my needs. The other alternative is to set up a server at home and use that - though I'm not sure how that all works or how much that would cost.
So I guess I am asking for advice on two things - an alternative safe and secure cloud storage solution that will keep my two mac's in sync with all my files etc... and an idea of cost, plausibility and advice on how to set up a home server to do this task.
Thanks in advance...
