Only requires dotNET 2.0 and FWG just did a very positive write-up on them.

I didn't look at this before because it doesn't support SFTP (which I use almost exclusively), but the ability to auto-split files to save things on services with file size limits is completely fantastic (SkyDrive has a 25 meg limit, I think Google Drive is 1 gig). I'm starting to use cloud services more frequently, so I'll definitely look into this.

Finally got a chance to test with Dropbox, Google Drive, and SkyDrive. All seemed to work very well. Uses an authentication system via your browser rather than just entering the username and password.

Works really well with one caveat: after uploading something, you have to refresh the folder set before you can delete the file (say if you uploaded something by accident).

Security note
Inside the config file, you can see how many characters the password hash takes up:

    Dropbox: 40
    Google Drive: 120
    SkyDrive: 972 (!)

At least on the hashing alone, SkyDrive appears to have fairly high security. That said, although it doesn't store usernames or passwords in plaintext, and even supports a master password, I'd still put this program inside an encrypted volume like TrueCrypt.

Screenshot:

Will definitely add it to the database sometime soon. Really terrific program to unify all the different cloud storage services.

CarotDAV is an excellent program; the ability to log into multiple Box, Dropbox, etc.. accounts, FTP/FTPS, securely log via WebDAV, e.g. to HiDrive, various 'Authentication Methods', Resume - Upload/Download, Auto Split, Encrypt/Verify - File(name/contents, etc..), Master Password, it truly is a GEM!

@webfork,
Creating a Master Password negates your 'Security note' / concern (which is kinda moot, as access is already established by running the program); all info regarding ALL accounts, i.e. account, username, password is encrypted on a single line in the XML 'Settings' file; with just 3 accounts, 2 Dropbox and 1 HiDrive, ~4400 cols.

Info on Encryption method is stored in the XML file.

True -- for most users, that's plenty secure.

Really happy with this program: it highlights three things that are great about portable freeware generally:

* Everything in one place
* Compatible with a variety of different services
* Security/Privacy - the aforementioned password hashing + master password

Wishlist - lots of these are rather predictable and based upon many other different file transfer tools, but listed roughly in order of priority:

* In addition to splitting files, automatically compress and upload files with optional encryption (using .ZIP or .7z format)
* SFTP or FTPS support (this can currently be enabled with that Tunnelier program, but something built-in and simple would be ideal)
* As one file is transferring, the ability to add more files to the queue
* Upload resume capability
* As pointed out by FWG, the ability to transfer between services (ideally server to server, but could easily be server to client and back to server)
* Optional file thumbnails for pictures
