dont forget dropbox, the free account will give you 2Gb of storage you can upload a 2Gb file if you wanted. .and if you can get your friends to sign up via an invite from you ,you will get an extra 250kb for each friend who signs up.
also with dropbox you have a public folder and anything you put in it you get a link (when it finishes uploading) and you can send the link to friends ,so you can share homework hahah

Will definitely look into that, sounds like the best option I currently have unless someone else know anything else =)
Thanks!

actually i made a mistake ,the extra free space you get from friends signing up is 250Mb not kb sorry.
by recommending people you can get a possible 8GB max.
beginning to sound like an advert this post.

Live Mesh works accross any network. It can even sync files to your skydrive account. You get 5 GB of storage on SkyDrive sync, additional 25 GB of SkyDrive storage not linked to Live Mesh.

When you sync folders between computers, any changes you make on one computer will be made on the other whenever the computers are online at the same time. The contents of the synced folders are saved on all of the computers, so you can still work on them even when you're not connected to the Internet.

i think there is a file size limit with sky drive and mesh .i think it would be clever to use both mesh and dropbox, covered then. apparently if you have an edu address because you are a student then the free space you can earn with dropbox doubles to 500mb

I stopped using DropBox in favor of Live Mesh, and it works great across three computers. Plus, you get 5 GB, not just 2 GB free.

LiveMesh only works with Windows and Mac....while Dropbox works on Linux too.

LiveMesh gives 5GB of space, but you cannot increase it. with Dropbox, you can pay for 50GB or 100GB.

Dropbox has better sharing and public support...without having to rely on the user having a Windows Live account.

Windows LiveMesh allows remote connections to your computer if you want...dropbox doesn't.

Dropbox installs on devices like phones and tablets. LiveMesh doesn't.

Dropbox has versioning control. It keeps 30 days of your files that you can gain access to in case you accidentally delete something or make a bad edit and save the file.

I some how doubt the OP will need more then 5 GB and will be uploading large files larger then 100 MB.
Just saying.
