# Wednesday, March 14, 2007
I've been looking all over the place for a fairly simple file-sharing application. My needs are pretty simple: Have 2 users share a file repository where changed files get pushed to the other person over the Internet automatically. Like I said, simple, no? I'm not asking for an enterprise-level application, a generic solution like version control, or a tool to cure cancer. I came across a very promising application called Tubes.

Tubes has a nice web site, a good overview video, blogs, a community forum, and other nice touches. However, the application is absolutely dreadful. To start, they FORCE you to store all of the files in a "Documents and Settings" subdirectory. So if you use partitioning, or even would just like to store your files in another location or drive, you're just plain out of luck. I reported this deficiency months ago. They just released a new Beta 4 download of their tool, but this feature didn't make the cut. Tubes is written in .NET. Addressing this feature would taken all of about 1 hour of coding and testing. It's a shame, because I like the concept, and I like the supporting community artifacts. But I guess that's why the feature didn't make it - this product is all about hype, concept, and promise, and not little things like shipping with a feature set that actually is usable.

With that rant out of the way, what are your suggestions for a pretty simplistic file sharing tool? I don't want to take on yet another side project to do in my "spare time".
