One important factor of choosing an online service is about data. Is my data safe? Can I pull out my data any time when I decide to stop using the service? Both are important factors I consider when choosing a service. Services from providers like Google have their brand name, and I blindly know that they keep my data safe. But what happens when you sign up for new services?
FileIt.in is now providing this safety-net for you now. You may export your data anytime (in Atom format). This is if you want to migrate from FileIt.in to any other service, or if you just happen to be cautious and want to have another backup (FileIt.in has nightly backup scheduled).
Please accept my apologies for not updating this site frequently! Well, as many would have guessed, I was totally engaged in a project: FileIt.in. I created FileIt.in for my own purposes of storing study notes, sharing them with others using various social networking tools. Registration (you may directly login using your Google or Yahoo! account) is free. So try it out
For the technically curious, the technology behind FileIt.in is discussed in this post. It is running in a 256MB RAM Ubuntu VM.
