Livedrive is an online storage service that offers two advantages over most services in this space:
- Unlimited file storage
- Integration with Windows Explorer
When you install Livedrive (and reboot your computer), you’ll notice an L drive show up in Windows Explorer. To copy files to the service, just drag and drop them to the L drive. You can also upload and download files through a web-based interface. And once your files are online you’ll be able to access them from any computer using the web client.
Thanks to the Windows Explorer integration, you could easily use LiveDrive as an offsite backup tool like Carbonite or Mozy. Just install your favorite file backup utility and point it to the L drive.
Livedrive is free while in beta, but I have a feeling the company will probably start charging a fee when the beta ends.
