Infatuas Posted May 8, 2012 Share Posted May 8, 2012 Hey All, So I've been very frustrated with the amount of documents I have scattered on 3 different machines which include work desktop, work laptop, and home desktop. I decided to install drop box and redirect my user files to this Dropbox folder which seems to work great. Couple of things I'm trying to accomplish in addition to this, but need some input. 1. I would like to use a password manager in tandom with drop box. I know there are some password managers out their that keep the data in a single file or files. The idea would be to put these encrypted password files in my drop box and install the application on all 3 of the above devices. What are the recommendations here for security? Are the password file/db created by the password manager secure enough to upload to Dropbox? 2. Also, my home desktop is actually more of a server with regards to the i7 Extreme, and raid so I'd like to turn it into a viable server. The problem I have is that I have like 200GB of pictures which reside on their and I have our profiles redirected to the raid so there is currently little concern about dataloss. I purchased a laptop for my wife but I'd like to find the best way to "share" those documents without placing the server in a domain and using roaming profiles or something. Maybe a NAS or something would do the trick. I do not have a problem with all of our family photos staying on the laptop as long as I can easily backup her laptop to the new server at home. I really don't like mapped network drives when they are accessed in My Computer so it would be cool to redirect/cache/sync files between her laptop and the local server so if she takes her laptop off site it will not be a problem. Any ideas here? Thanks! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
