Folder Share

FolderShare is a great help for group work, it keeps a selected folder synchronized among a group of computers (Windows and Mac) connected through internet.

(From their web): "FolderShareTM allows you to create a private peer-to-peer network that will help you to synchronize files across multiple devices and access or share files with colleagues and friends. (...) FolderShare allows you to share and sync important information instantly with anyone you invite(...)
  • Share files up to 2 GB in size
  • Unlimited file transfers - no limits on quantity or size of files transferred
  • Any file type - files are synced and transferred in their original format"

Best of all, it is free, at least by now (it seems to have been aquired by Microsoft).

Hi there,

I've been using sucesfully dropbox for a while. It is, from what you describe, very similar to foldershare. It is cross-platform, files are verisioned, and if needed, you can use a nice web graphical UI.

Thanks Diego!
Specially useful now that Foldershare has turned into Windows Live Sync and the linux version seems definitely out of the way.
