Apparently this writer is not very good at doing his research, since he nudges out SkyDrive in favor of Dropbox because of DropBox’s ability to do PC to PC Sync. Well, if he’d looked a little harder, he would have discovered that SkyDrive’s companion, Windows Live Mesh, does exactly the same thing. Plus SkyDrive gives you 25GB FREE, that’s greater than 10X more than DropBox gives you.

Personally—and I think this goes for everyone at Lifehacker—I love Dropbox. If you have more than one computer (as it seems the very large majority of you do), it’s almost a necessity. If there’s a winner in my book, it’s definitely Dropbox.

If you’re not using SkyDrive and Mesh already, I highly encourage you to give it a try. Sync files across PC’s, the Cloud, share and edit Office docs, share photos, even videos. Call me biased, but I don’t know of a better FREE offering out there.
