Free Online File Storage: CIFS (Common Internet File System)

The CIFS service enables you to use your Desktop Services personal filespace (or group filespaces) directly from a non-DS (your own) machine. When you have successfully set up your CIFS connection, your Desktop Services filespace will appear as just another network device, and can be used in exactly the same way as any local filing system (like your CD drive or local hard disk).
