No on sendspace once it’s up there it’s there and you can remove the file from 
your computer.  In that way it is literally a storage place, whereas dropbox is 
more of a cloud service, sendspace is a storage service.  

If you set up a pro account theoretically your space in sendspace is unlimited. 
 Their limits involve size of files to be uploaded, nothing more than 4 gigs, 
but if you upload it as a folder in itself thus braking down the files within 
as sub files it can be up to 1000 items that would show in the viewer.  So once 
your remote folder gets over 1000 items showing in viewer you get an obnoxious 
warning from sendspace.  Well to get around that you just create folders and 
move the items into those, and you can sub folder within those folders of 
course as well.  Say for example: you have your main remote folder, so you 
create a books folder, then brake that down to fiction as a sub folder, and non 
fiction as another sub folder.  Then of course if you have multiple books from 
same author you have that author as a folder then you won’t be showing all of 
that in your remote folder.  You can also upload files directly into one of 
those sub folders.  All you have to do is get to that sub folder, and open it 
then choose all the files you want to upload into it, get it started, then you 
can either go back in history to the previous folder, or go to the home folder 
in remote which would be your main remote folder.  So you can put a lot of 
stuff up there.  Now free accounts is a different ball game.  You can put a lot 
of stuff up there, but you have to have download activity happening with it or 
the files will expire.  But as you probably remember back when you joined the 
list I was using sendspace as a storage drive basically to store stuff because 
I only had a 40 gig hard drive.  So as you were joining the grow over at yahoo 
I was loading a lot of stuff over there simply to keep some space clear on my 
computer’s hard drive.  That is why I tended to be more reluctant to use 
dropbox because I was having to maintain a copy basically on the computer, 
although actually I don’t think it is on it once it’s uploaded to dropbox, but 
dropbox is so limited for free accounts.  Dropbox though has been vary handy 
for putting stuff into fem the Mac then pulling it down from the linux machine, 
because the linux version of sendspace wizard is so out of date and useless 
accessibility wise.  Of course I can put stuff on an external drive and carry 
it over and hook it on linux machine too, which I do that more often now and 
that is faster and can handle larger files and whole folders of course.  But 
dropbox has still been handy between machines.But sendspace wizard in windows 
and mac are both quite usable and accessible.  Gives you another place to back 
upup stuff too.  Well I think it’s worth it at least.
