Sync and Share Virtual Machine with DropBox

Mar 30, 2009, 19:04 (0 Talkback[s])

"They have a free and paid service and their free service gives 5GB 2GB storage, which is what I am using right now. Dropbox is yet to open up their API (planned) but you can still do some really nice things with it like creating a virtual machine with virtualbox and save it on your dropbox; you can open up this "virtual disk" from any other machine with virtualbox and when you make any changes to the VM it gets synced and saved, so that you can go to a third computer to use the virtual machine and the changes will be there.

"When you first create a virtual machine, it uploads the "virtual disk" to dropbox, which can take some time depending on your upload speed but once its created it gets synced with all your dropbox client computers."
