    This is what it seems like, from the PC side -- I'm on the fence about a TP until the doc editing is in place. Box.net has said that file syncing is available for the business subscriptions, with it eventually (2011?) rolled to personal subscriptions.

    When I looked at my documents on my PCs, I realized that, once I discounted folders that I immediately saw I really would prefer not be synced or work just as archived storage, I only had about 5 GB of files that I would even consider sync-worthy. So, I determined that I'm just going to use Dropbox for my syncing and, should I get a TP and the 50 GB of Box.net, Box.net will be for archiving -- things like my resume, documents for discontinued/completed projects, etc.

    Anybody figure out where the 'saved' (downloaded) files go?

    I 'saved' a bunch of pictures (all jpgs) and I can't find anything in Photos & Videos.

    Ideas?

    no issue here. I know there is a max file size that Box supports though.

    • You can have box.net open in multiple tabs in a browser (havn't tried multiple windows of the same browser).

    • Opening a second different browser and logging in will logout any other current browser.
    • The bulk upload option is supposed to have an "Upload" button. I can see it in their screenshots for the tutorial. The screenshots show they are using some Mac OS.
    • Follow the directions here to add your account as a folder/networked drive in windows (this is how I drag and drop folders). (it's almost insanely slow)
    I tried the network drive in Windows option as well and your right, it was insanely slow. However, Gladinet (free download) does the same trick but it also maxed my upload speed (25Mbps). It also seems to bypass the max file size when uploading.

    yes ... I uploaded music to Box and downloaded it to my TP and played it through the TP
