Dropbox is a free site to make backup, sync and sharing made easy.

Install this software on computers where you need to keep files synchronized or shared, and you get up to 2GB free space, and more for pay.

Use at your own risk (be wary of trusting confidential information to sites like this until you check them out thoroughly).  Also, since this requires installing software, it can’t be used on campus computers.

Maximum PC has a post on How to Hack Your DropBox with five mashups to get more use out of this service.

Sync files from outside the DropBox folder using DropBox Folder Sync.
