Distributed File Sharing for SAR
Many people have asked me over the years how to share files amongst several people who may need to edit the same document. There are many clunky file sharing solutions out there (including the one I developed for my SAR team), but I’ve finally found one that looks to be the best in breed:
- a small client application runs on your computer, it monitors a folder
- anything you put in that folder gets synced with the server.
- any other computers running the client download the synced files.
- there’s a version control system so you can keep track of changes
- there’s a web interface
- you can share files publicly on the web
- 2 gigs free (should be more than enough for rapidly changing files)
