BurgersNFries 2,407 Posted October 15, 2008 Share Posted October 15, 2008 I'm dinking with a program that seems very cool - Dropbox - and am playing around with it in conjunction with Evernote, Quicken & a couple of other programs. Dropbox is another "cloud" program, but the data is stored on Amazon's S3 system and is encrypted before being stored on the S3 system. What this means is that since there are alot of my Evernotes that I don't want on Evernote's "cloud" because they contain sensitive data (the idea behind the current EN encryption is great if you have only a few things that are sensitive...but if you regularly store sensitive data, it just isn't feasible...) I understand EN's position as to why they have no plans for fully encrypted notebooks and so what I've been doing is copying/pasting my EN files between my desktop & my laptop. But Dropbox seems to be the ideal solution to keep both computers in sync and yet still be able to have alot of sensitive data encrypted when it's sitting on the "cloud" server. I've only started dinking with this today, so cannot comment fully. But so far, I've run into one thing I don't like. Dropbox does not allow you to store your Dropbox folder (translate: sync folder) on a USB drive...unless it's mounted as a folder on an internal drive. But for many people, this may not be a problem.
