However, the DropBox folder and all of its contents are publicly viewable by every user on your system (i.e. drwxr-xr-x ). This even includes the “Private” folder. I’m not sure if changing the permissions of the folder impedes DropBox’s functionality.

I’ve been keeping an eye out for more reviews since you posted on mozy (http://www.tipsfor.us/2007/03/04/getting-cozy-with-mozy/). I’ve done some testing for another player in the space, but since I try not to use comments as advertising I’ll just say if you are still doing reviews, shoot me a note and I’ll give you my take…
