    i use ibackup at work, and mozy.com as a personal backup service. most of of these 2.0 backup services offer a mapped drive to the windows shell, so i’m wondering if you see benefits of S3 over other services.

    sharing definitely seems to be a cool add-on, but i’m not sure how often i’d use this
