Free Game Aid–Dropbox Online Storage

Though not strictly for gaming, Dropbox is a great free service that I use regularly to share files with my gaming group. Dropbox gives you 2 gigabytes of free storage space and an application to keep directories on your computer synced. Since Dropbox has a nice system to restrict access to specific directories, all you need do is create a “game” directory and drop campaign updates or character sheets in and it will automatically be downloaded to everyone allowed access to that folder. Other users¬† cannot see any folders you do not share. I found it much more efficient than FTP sites or email chains. Oh, there is also a web interface if you do not want to download the application.

Full disclosure: Anyone signing up for a free account through the link below receives an extra 250 Mb of storage space and I also get a bonus of 250 Mb.  Trivial bonus aside, it really is a cool tool and I would be posting about it even if I received nothing.
