Your desktop on the web - Microsoft Live Mesh

Microsoft is heavily pushing web based services these days. The FREE Live Mesh (beta) service looks very promising. It offers a number of options of synch'ing files between different computers and 5GB of online storage. You might also be able to stop paying for GoToMyPC (I haven't tried this yet). According their site:

"When you sign up for Live Mesh, you automatically get your own personal Live Desktop—your Windows PC on the web—complete with 5 GB of free storage. Synchronize files to your Live Desktop, and you’ll be able to access them using almost any web browser, no matter where you are.

And who says you can’t be in two different places at once? With Live Mesh, you can connect remotely from one computer to another, so you can access files, programs, and settings as if you were sitting in front of that remote computer. "

The full overview is here.
