How can I synchronize more than 2GB of files and folders over the internet for free?

Is there any way I can automatically set files and folders on two separate non-LAN networked computers to synchronize automatically? Basically, just like Dropbox, but without the 2 GB limit and of course for free!

    I tried sugarsync. This was very good. Also had an i phone app for a free 5 GB account. Thanks for the above information though :)

    I would look into rsync. It's relatively easy to setup a rsync server after you install cygwin and it will easily allow syncs directly between the computers (with no limits). It also supports resuming.

    you have to keep a window of program open on one PC in order to access it from another PC

    Hi
    Live Mesh
    https://www.mesh.com/welcome/default.aspx

    Windows Live SkyDrive

    Live Skydrive (25GO) is for online storage, Live Sync is primarily for folder synchronization across computers (no storage) while Live Mesh offers a good mix of both though with limited storage space(5GB).

    Live Sync
    https://sync.live.com/
    •You can share folders to be accessible to other LiveSync users which enables us to have separate folders accessible by all users – and some accessible to just selected users.
    •No real limits on space for us – 20 folders & 20,000 files in each.
    •No online storage – but at least one of our servers/PCs will always be switched on so that’s not a huge deal for us.

    JungleDisk to maintain an online backup anyway with full versioning

    If you are looking for something with online storage (backup, computers do not need to be online at the same time) I would recommend ADrive
    http://www.adrive.com/

    If you don't want to store them online and both computers are running at the same time PureSync might do the job
