Try Dropbox. You get 2gb of free space and works just like Windows Explorer. You drag and drop your files into your dropbox folder and they are automatically uploaded to your dropbox account server. You can find more info here https://www.dropbox.com/features. You can download here https://www.dropbox.com/referrals/NTMyNDM1Nzk5
