Those of you that use Dropbox, have you heard of this? Seems interesting.

Uh oh. Looks like another sync service that I should use!

I've got everything about my daily backup, sync, and routines all revolving around DropBox.
With plenty of custom autohotkey scripts that export and backup settings of various apps I use, and WinSCP that dublicates my critical files and folders to a remote server. I doubt I'll switch.
(Until I get my own DropBox clone working.)

Wow.. nice..

It's interesting to see how the world wide web and home computing is coming along..
Soon everything will be Tablet sized and all your applications and programs will be stored and ran right off the cloud.. Wont really need much storage or anything on tablets anymore..

That would still take a long time. There are still places that have a very slow internet connection making the "cloud" useless for them :)

I currently don't use it, but I would imagine when you sign up you get a username so when you refer someone, when they sign up they will use your username as a referral.

I'd stay away from CX.com. I was sucked in by the amount of free storage they allowed, but in the process of backing up my files more than half of the files on my hard drive were deleted. I did extensive searching, and they were not moved - they were gone. I emailed CX a half dozen times begging for help, hoping it was part of their backup process and that they could help me easily restore the files. I never got a response to any of my emails, and when logged into my account the dashboard said I had no outstanding inquiries - my emails to tech support disappeared just like my files.
In the end I had to go through 500 folders, each with 3-5 subfolders and many files in each one, to find the stuff that had been erased and individually download them back to my PC. There wasn't even a way to DL the folders with all their contents; I had to DL each and every one, one at a time.
Good luck.

I don't find these online storage services very useful. I do use DropBox a little though.
It reminds me of the freehosting era. Sure it's free but it has many drawbacks.
