There are a number of online storage companies popping up and I have covered Dropbox, Box and Skydrive previously. Now there is a new player, Zumodrive, offering something that sets it apart from the rest.
On the face of it the service is similar to the others: a (small, 2gb) amount of free online storage that you can access from your Windows, Mac or iPhone devices or via a web interface. However, where Zumodrive differs is in how it is presented on the host machine. So on my laptop ZumoDrive appears a a removable storage device on drive z (see below). You can browse through the contents of this drive as you would any other and when you open a file it is streamed from the net. If you want to be able to access a file when you are offline you can set it so that it is available locally.
ZumoDrive touts itself as the ideal solution for Netbooks as it gives what is traditionally a device with a limited amount of disk space and unlimited amount of space. That’s true provided, of course, that you can afford the $80 a month the largest option (500gb) would cost you. Other plans start at $3/mth for 10gb.
