Having trouble maintaining data while away from your home computer? Forget to drag a presentation onto your flash drive? You have options, according to a recent report in the New York Times. The Buffalo Cloudstor drive offers cloud access to every file, video and MP3 on the drive; it uses a sharing service called Pogoplug that allows the user to access, view and share files that were left at home. Dropbox is a file-syncing service that allows the user to sync a single folder (or folders) between multiple computers; any time you change something on one machine, the changes are reflected on every other machine connected to the Dropbox account. Crate allows the user to drag a file into the service and receive a link to the file; you can then download that file anywhere in the world; it is said to be perfect for larger files that you can’t e-mail.
