    Very useful site too. I am still tinkering with W7!
    Incidently, I have had another activation incident with W7
    I did a system restore from the latest restore point which put it right. Funny innit?
    On a more useful note.
    Is Dropbox secure?

    Stored using aes encryption, and using ssl to transfer, so as secure as it can be, I have never had any issues with it, and I have used it for a wide variety of purposes

    You'll like it especially if you have multiple machines, since it auto syncs the files to each installation of dropbox for you.

    The one feature I am finding incredibly useful though is being able to share folders with friends, family and colleagues, for example, I throw bunch of pictures into the folder I'm sharing with my parents (I live in the states, they're in AUS) and then they turn their pc on, those pics will sync to their computer, hassle free.

    I also move program folders to the dropbox and symlink the location... this way I share a lot of desktop settings as well as browser settings and bunches of other stuff, across multiple machines..... very very nice

    Sounds very useful. I'll need to read it up. My youngest son is in Aus. Whiteway, Casula,NSW near Sydney. He married an Australian girl. A bit too far for week-end visits.
