I need a solution like dropbox for computers in our lab where students have access to their files. We created an account for our lab on dropbox and so there's a folder now synced on all computers for each student. Problem is students can see and edit other students' work.
How can we protect these folders? We could make every student have a dropbox account, login when they get here (perfectly acceptable), logout when they leave (again perfectly acceptable) and delete their dropbox folder so the next student can login to their dropbox account. I know this is going to be prone to mistakes and conflicts though.
Sugarsync seems to have an amazing solution for my needs. A pure cloud drive. When you close the Sugarsync application, your drive disappears, because it was always in the cloud. Problem with it is you can't log off! Surprising... but I don't know how yet. Seems like you have to uninstall the app to change accounts? There must be a registry entry or file with the information.
UPDATE: I found out you type control shift R to uninstall Sugarsync. It doesn't really uninstall though, it just quits and when you run it again it asks for new account or user/password. Perfect! Except then you have to say no to upgrading, name the computer, etc... Not very nice, but it'll work if there are no other solutions.
UPDATE 2: I should've noted we have Macs and PCs.
