Online collaboration - sharing and syncing files

Post by spkey » Mon Apr 15, 2013 1:58 pm

Hi all,

I'm investigating whether there are any solutions/services for online collaboration where multiple members can share and sync audio files between them. I am hoping we can all share a folder and every time someone updates a project it syncs with the rest.

While I am aware of services such as Google Drive and Dropbox - I don't consider them ideal for these scenarios.

Please, let me know if you have any alternative ideas or experience with online collaboration.

Cheers

Thanks all!
I'll try Gobbler. If that doesn't work I'll see whether the desktop version of Google Drive does the job.

regarding Dropbox - I think it's a little bit slow

Personally, I think dropbox is outdated. There are at least 5 other services that offer more space from the get go with the same or better speeds. Sharing capabilities are also arguable, of course.

skydrive
google drive
sugarsync
box.com
ubuntu one

Gobbler is great because its tailored for this sort of thing, yet new and relatively unknown.

Then you have the newest kid on the block, tresorit, which if you go through lifehacker offers a whopping 50GB of space for free...and its encrypted!

Dropbox was just one of the earliest adopters of cloud technology and therefore what people gravitate to if they know nothing else and/or are working with a client/partner who uses it. (or just comfortable and already accommodated using Dropbox, with no real need to change)
