Skydrive/Dropbox or other offline storage on a domain.
I'm investigating offline storage and would like to allow staff to be able to store files they wish to edit from home in a dropbox (or equivalent) account. I'd love to make it seamless so they have an extra network drive they can just drag files into but I don't want to allow them access to the server when they're out of the network so I'd like to use one of these free solutions.
I've successfully installed dropbox on a couple of teachers' computers but it's not especially quick as to start with drop box only installs in the account that is used to install the software (administrator) and I then need to copy the dropbox files from the administrator 'application data' folder to their own folder. It's not difficult but I've got another 40 laptops to do so I don't know whether there's a more slick solution? Does MS's skydrive system integrate better? I've looked at various options but so far dropbox seems to be the best especially with portable device compatibility.
