Can you recommend a free document sharing and storage program?

I know I’ve seen something about it @ makeuseof, a site that’s free that offers a service to upload, store and of course share with others or be able to view from any computer any document use as word or excel docs. I’ve searched and searched your site for several ours and can’t find anything.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

    You'll have another Google Docs vote from me! Check out all MakeUseOf articles tagged with "Google Docs": http://www.makeuseof.com/tags/google-docs/

    You'll find not only articles about Google Docs, but also alternatives:)

    You may also use Box.net which a free account gives you:
    * 1 GB of web-storage
    * 25 MB file size limit

    Or if you want to share documents you may want to try out scribd.com which allows you to upload a document and view online. The good thing about scribd is that you can upload a limited number of documents (please let me know if there is a limit - I haven't seen it anywhere)

    As with Tina and Aibek said, Google Docs and Zoho are a good option. Microsoft is in the process of developing an online office version which will be great when it comes out. I believe it will be accessible from office.com - not sure when though.

    Google Docs is certainly the easiest one if all you are sharing are documents.
    Google Sites (part of Google apps) also allows you to create several types of private sites that can be shared with a group or one other person. You can share documents, files and calendars.
    If you need to share more than that or only need to make them accessible to others:
    http://www.4shared.com/
    or
    http://www.gigasize.com/

    Zoho Docs is another good one

    I personally prefer it over Google Docs because it looks very similar to the Microsoft Office.

    A good thing about Google Docs is that you can sign in with your existing Google account.
