DropBox solves this problem admirably meaning it is entirely viable to work on a company laptop, save, go home, work on a home computer with a larger monitor, save, go to the office, and resume working.
More than this, DropBox clients for a raft of smartphones and tablets mean your files are readily available on the road too. Just left the office and got a call for a report while you're driving? With DropBox it is a snap to open the document and mail a link to anyone.
Out of the box, so to speak, DropBox provides 2Gb of uncharged cloud storage. Paid accounts allow you to increase this quota.
Even so, shrewd DropBox users have noted clever ways to eke ever increasing amounts of free space from generous offerings the company makes available periodically.
One such increase is yesterday's announcement of a new beta DropBox release which automates uploading of photographs and videos from removable storage into DropBox.
To avail yourself of this, first download and install the new DropBox beta (version 1.3.13) for Windows, Mac or Linux.
Next, plug in your removable media (including phones). As well as the usual options for what to do (browse, etc) you will find an option to import into DropBox. Choose this, and watch as DropBox brings over all the media it can find into a new 'Camera Uploads' folder that it creates.
Imported media is renamed by date and time making it easy to sort.
For each block of 400 - 500Mb or so that you upload, DropBox will grant you an additional free storage space on your DropBox account to match, up to a limit of 5Gb.
