Mozy announces sync apps for desktop, iOS and Android

Desktop-to-cloud backup provider Mozy has announced that it will soon release Mozy Sync, a file synchronization service like Dropbox or SugarSync. The company has also stated that Android and iOS apps will be available and that an invite-only beta is underway. You'll have to be a current MozyHome customer to be considered as a tester. What's not spelled out is how the service will work....

SendGenie offers simple drag and drop file sharing for Windows and Mac

SendGenie is a slick new app (currently in open beta testing) which makes sharing files and photos as easy as dragging and dropping. Once installed, SendGenie adds a dropzone widget to your desktop which you can hide and unhide via the system tray icon. When you want to zap a file to a friend, just drag it onto the dropzone (yes, the wizard hat that you see above). Your file will be added to a...

How to share files on your Windows network

Homegroups make sharing files and folders easy on Windows 7, but Windows XP and Vista users have to do things a little differently. Fortunately, there are dead-simple ways to share files on both XP and Vista, too. Microsoft offers a very detailed step-by-step guide for those of you looking for an exhaustive walkthrough, but here's the short version for Windows XP users: click Start >...

BotSync wirelessly syncs files to your Android device via SFTP

There are plenty of big-name sync tools available for Android -- like Dropbox, SugarSync, and Fiabee. Those of you who prefer taking the DIY approach, however, might want to check out BotSync, a new app that can connect to your own SFTP server. Configuring BotSync is simple enough. Enter your server address and credentials, the appropriate port number, local and remote directories to use as...

Copy files to a Windows Phone 7 device in Windows Explorer

Don't get me wrong -- I really enjoy using Zune to listen to music on my desktop computer. When all I want to do is quickly drop a couple of songs or video clips onto my Windows Phone 7 device, however, it's a bit overkill. While my humble little Palm Pre has a USB mass storage mode which lets me copy files onto it like it was any other external hard drive, WP7 devices aren't quite as accessible....

Square Privacy Cleaner from NoVirusThanks helps hide your tracks

NoVirusThanks has provided a trusted tool for remotely scanning files before we download them for quite some time. Now they've introduced a new, free app to help keep your desktop activities private. Square Privacy Cleaner (SPC) is like a lot of other track-hiding apps, offering to remove things like cookies, browsing history, MRU items, and clipboard contents. Internet Explorer, Firefox,...

Internet Explorer 9 features a better download manager

As it turns out, that earlier post from Fast Company broke Microsoft's embargo. Now, however, the ban has been lifted, and the images and reviews will be coming rapid-fire. We'll do our best to keep you up to speed until Sebastian is online in California. One incredibly nice new feature Ed Bott illustrates in his review is an improved download manager. If you follow Download Squad, you've no...

CCleaner Enhancer turbo charges CCleaner's crap removal powers

Among the must-have utilities on my USB flash drive is CCleaner -- it's been cleaning my system of useless, space-wasting cruft for years. Every now and then, however, I find myself wishing there was an easy way to make it tidy up after a few additional apps without having to manually set up a handful of custom rules. Thanks to a post on Raymond.CC, I've now got a nice, simple way to do just...

Send To Dropbox is a beautiful, simple way to email files to your Dropbox

When you register to Send To Dropbox, it doesn't require your Dropbox username and password. It simply asks permission to hook into Dropbox's API. Once you agree, you get an email address that ends with @sendtodropbox.com. Anything sent to that email address ends up in your Dropbox, sorted according to date, subject, or From address. You can either give this address to people that you trust, or...

Google working on improved download handling in Chrome

I won't lie -- my download folder is a mess. It's packed with files that I've downloaded for testing purposes, archives that have long since been extracted, and .PDF and .DOCX files that were only required for the 45 seconds they took to open and print. I'll place a portion of the blame on Chrome -- which doesn't currently provide an option to open (rather than save) downloaded files like (gasp!)...

Unlocker now removes stubborn files on 64-bit Windows

If you've ever received an error message when trying to delete a file, then you know what Unlocker is for. It's a free utility for deleting or moving files that are locked by a Windows process -- which is why Unlocker has long been a part of my malware-busting toolkit. If you've got a 64-bit Windows system, you might have tried an existing version only to find out that it can't work its...

Dropbox gets stupid-easy two-click file sharing!

Dropbox is pretty much the best thing to happen to file sharing since ... well, ever. It just got a lot better too, with an easy way to send a quick download link to a friend in only two clicks. Previously, you had to create shared Dropbox folders and invite friends to them or put files into your public folder to make them public. Under the new sharing model, just select "get shareable link" from...

Get Advanced SystemCare Pro 3 for free -- this week only!

Whenever there's a new post about cleaning, maintenance, or tune-up apps on Download Squad, it seems like there's always at least one commenter who proclaims their affinity for Advanced SystemCare. And with good reason: SystemCare does a good job of cleaning up temp files and browsing traces (including Flash cookies), tuning the Windows registry, and it can even clean up some basic spyware. ...

Five Android apps for IT admins

If you're an IT Administrator (or even a developer who's lucky enough to "own" the server your apps run on), you've seen this go down before - you're out and about, having a great time when the phone rings. Something is horribly broken and needs your magic touch right away. Surely it's as simple as bouncing a system process - 2 minutes tops! Unfortunately, you're nowhere near a PC to type in...

Use Office 2010 to map a local drive letter to your free 25GB Live SkyDrive

Live SkyDrive is an awesome service. 25GB of web storage for free? Yeah, that sounds good to me. Sure, the 50MB per file limit is a little bit of a downside but it's still a great place to store documents, music, and photos. Heck, if you tell an app like 7zip to chunk big files up into 50MB pieces you can store whatever the heck you want. If only there was a way to access your SkyDrive storage...
