- ElephantDrive - 1 GB free space, Email: YES - URI: NO
- DropBoks - 1 GB free space, Email: NO - URI: NO
- 4shared.com - 5 GB free space, Email: YES - URI: YES (very nice interface, but free account expires with 30 days of non-use)
- bluestring.com from AOL (more of a digital storytelling service, saving specific file types -- audio, video, images -- but not PDFs)
- openomy - 1 GB free space, Email: NO - URI: YES
- allmydata.com - 1 GB free space, Email: YES - URI: YES (one of my favorites, so far)

- getdropbox - 2 GB free space, Email: YES - URI: YES (still in beta, not giving out passwords or downloading software, yet) - The video demo on their website looks impressive.

- idrive - 2 GB free space, Email: ? - URI: ? (Windows only client software download required)
- divshare.com - 5 GB free space, Email: YES - URI: YES (another of my favorites)
The ElephantDrive team says URIs are coming (though only for unencrypted objects, as the encrypted ones won't be able to be displayed).
Thanks for aggregating this list.
The neat trick with box is that I can place links to one or items in my library from within my MS live writer software when I update mine or anothers Wordpress blogs.
I use the box.net live writer plugin from
It just much easier and quicker than using the wordpress (or any blog) backend tools.
Thankyou for this list and all the other wonderful research papers.
