AOL has rolled out Xdrive, which gives you 5GB of online storage to play around with. What can you do with it?
- You can use it to share very large videos or pictures by making folders in your Xdrive public.
- You can send large email attachments. The "Send A File" feature allows you to e-mail a link to the file you want to transfer. The file is compressed for download so it should be very fast. This is similar to Pando.
- You can also use it to backup your most important files. There are tools like Gmail Drive that allow you to use Gmail as an online hard drive, but you only get 2GB of storage. You can download Xdrive Desktop, which will integrate Xdrive into your computer like adding on a 5GB external hard drive.
