Hi All:

1.  How can I determine if a cloud service will allow me to use it as a shared server drive?
(Example:In my office, I have an "S" drive which is shared amongst 4 other people and we can open files on that "S" drive and work on it,)
2.  I can use the "S" drive as a backend for my MS ACCESS tables.
3.  I can use the :S: drive to have several people open ONENOTE and modify the same file.

I know for a fact that drop box does not allow me to do numbers 2 and 3.  
4. Does anyone know if skydrive or any other competing products allow this?
5. Do any web hosting services permit this?

You would need to find a service that you can rdp into http://www.serverintellect.com/support/techfaq/drive-rdp.aspx.  This would mean spending at least $50 to $100 per month on a dedicated hosting service.

However, you can map the local version of dropbox and that will auto sync to the associated web folder.  Having  a mac I can't try this out but looks promising.  http://www.easybow.nl/help/dropbox/index.htm#page=Mapping_Dropbox_Site_as_Network_Drive.htm
