I only have about 3.4gb of dropbox and i don't know enough people to pester to get 8gb.

What are most peoples thoughts on the asus web storage? 8gb for signing up seems great. If it sucks i don't want to waste any time transferring files.

it's not bad, works very similar to dropbox, and if you don't use the shared folder feature on db a lot, then it's going to work essentially the same for you.

mine says i have unlimited space, but i have no idea how that came about.

Actually, Asus prime owners have 8GB storage for an unlimited length of time. You can read it in the "Product Information" link on this page:

TRUE, but before one of the very early updates, you could get 1 year unlimited storage followed by 8GB free forever, obviously they rethought the logistics of this.

IME Dropbox is better able to handle off line cases, AWS has improved for a case like standing in an airport w/e free wifi. It also has a much more mature and natural Windows/Linux client then AWS.

If I was just using it as a digital locker, I'd use AWS for the really great price tag and offers avail when buying their newer models lol

Current use dropbox desktop app as i can just drag and drop and file instantly appears on my dropbox account. ASUS desktop app on the otherhand not as efficient. Files don't get upload instantly though currently ASUS cloud storage offers more space.

I have both as well. I only really use Dropbox though since I am used to it but it is nice to know I have 8GB sitting there waiting for me. I think the sharing in dropbox is slightly easier.

I only have 2.5GB in dropbox though. I think I have enough computers at work that I could make 27 or so dummy gmail accounts to get the 8GB but I haven't needed the space so I have never taken the time to try.. I am not sure if they would become suspicious by the sudden increase in my referrals. I don't know enough people who know or care about cloud storage to to get me there either.

Is it just me or isn't dropbox working that good on the prime?
It won't let me upload documents in folders, (only the root dir) and i can't get to the dropbox file by using a file explorere, i gotta go into dropbox and press 'upload file' to get something there :/

(If the dropbox file is located in the file explorere, could someone enlighten me where and if root is required?)
