    I have a constant need to upload and access files on a day to day basis. Nothing critical so don't really want to splash out cash.

    Is there anywhere that I can upload my files to for free for viewing at another time?

    I tried to use my email, but it didn't seem to accept the smtp settings, so it looks like FTP is the only way forward.


    thanks

    50MB per file, private and public, supports direct linking.

    I've been using it for over a year to host images for OcUK.

    How do you get a FTP address to upload stuff (its uploading through a program, not manually).

    thanks

    It's only a web interface :(

    You could get some free webspace from: x10hosting
    I used them for a couple of years and they were fantastic. 99% uptime.

    Or you can get paid hosting from as little as £14.99 per year: TSOhost
    You'll get practically 100% uptime and very fast speeds.

    FireFTP should do it; it's a FTP client plug-in for Firefox.

    Does anyone know a way to setup an FTP from your PC? So I could have a storage HDD which can be accessed using the interwebs from say, work or college ?

    seconded...can sync folders for you, and then they are accessible through web interface...used alot when i was doing uni work on my home computer and then laptop at uni, always had the most up to date version of what i was working on without having to worry about different versions, usb sticks etc...

    I tried this before, but couldn't get it to work :( I followed setup guides on the internet but I couldn't properly configure it for external connections :(

    Confirming FTP is dead and the subversioning and other features make dropbox the king of syncing files between work and home.
