Is there any storage provider that can allow shared storage without the person allocated shared rights having to install any software?

The reason for this request is that I wish my father who is a little tech limited to be able to share photos etc with me. I wish to do this in the simplest way possible. I envisage him going to a website to upload photos that appear in my shared folder. E.g. Dropbox allows you to share a folder but the person allocated shared rights must install Dropbox.

Is there a service that will allow this functionality please?

You might want to look for sites that offer WebDAV accessible storage. WebDAV client functionality is built in to many operating systems but some implementations are better than others. A quick google search turned up mydisk.se. I have not used them since I normally setup my own WebDAV space when needed so your mileage may vary.

Basic WebDAV uses http (non-encrypted) and port 80 for communication so when you are researching providers you will want to look for WebDAVs. WebDAVs uses https and provides all the benefits of SSL for security. –  chuck Nov 8 '11 at 14:18
