Well, thank you.

Although... the first snag has already been hit demoing Dropbox.

In order to keep Dropbox as a free service, the total allotment of data capable of being stored at any given time... is only 2 gigs.

The first file I'd like to transfer is 5.27 gigs.

The next available plan is $9.99 a month/$99.99 a year, for 50 gigs.

I'll be honest though, I have no interest in paying $100.00 a year.

This leads me back to my questions regarding a home server.

I am aware of the security vulnerabilities generated through such a server.

Port forwarding has it's uses, and I believe it would be involved with what I'd like to do.

Regardless.

As far as configuration and maintenance, those are of no concern.
-In 1 1/2 years I'll be graduating with an associates in Computer Information Systems.
-So I suppose I'd better get used to configuration and maintenance.

Now---

Dropbox is checked off the list.

Someone, please enlighten me with the 101s of a personal server.

And thank you all for the advice that's been dealt thus far.

Go Deep.
