Dropbox is a great ‘social’ way of sharing large files via the cloud. But Dropbox is not entirely in the cloud. There is a small app that resides on your desktop and if allowed boots up with your system.
Personally, I hate installing a new software for a one-off exchange, or just because the herd is using it. I guess there are people (some in my family too) who feel the very same thing about Dropbox. For instance, my brother is on a low-bandwidth connection and he doesn’t see the point of using Dropbox for large file uploads right now.
FileStork sounds like a solution for him. FileStork allows me to request my brother to send a file to me without him requiring to install Dropbox. He does not need to share a folder on his system. Even at your end of Dropbox, the process to use FileStork is dead simple.
1. Connect to your Dropbox account via FileStork and authorize the app to access your Dropbox account.
