My Dropbox as school exchange folder
I've been using My Dropbox as a very convenient way of sharing common files that I use in my schools.
I have it installed on my curric servers and on my home machine and its been great - I've found it a lot less hassle than using a pendrive with the great advantage in that I can't lose it physically
I've had a cunning plan to get one account per school (talking primaries here) and use it as a common shared folder for all the teachers/TAs.
I'm probably going to have to use the $9.99/month to gete the 50G option if its usuage takes off.
Has anyone had any bad experiences with My Dropbox or could they personally recommend another product supplier (no googling please ) that would do the intended job

I would think very carefully about using external storage for things like common staff.
What sort of data gets stored there? You will probable find that there will not be a lot you can store as lots of data requires FIPS 140-2 or above comlpliant storage/transport.
Also, how does it handle multiple users editing the same document?

I agree with the above reply, I would go on the Becta website and see what guidlines they have on this. Also you will need to do a risk assesment before proceding.
