Spotdox is an add on for Dropbox that gives you access to all your files, not just the ones you put in dropbox.
I’ve found Spotdox so useful. Also a combination of a Web service and a Mac app, Spotdox lets you remotely browse the files on your Mac and copy any of them—again, from afar.
it's a dead simple way to make your computer easy to access from anywhere without really setting anything up
Spotdox lets you access any file on your computer via Dropbox. That is, you can even get remote access to files which are in, say, your movies folder as long as your Mac is running. How? Magic.
Spotdox works as an add-on to Dropbox allowing you to access any file on your computer (or any drives attached to it) from any location or device. Never get stuck without that important file again. Simply install Dropbox, then add Spotdox and you will never have to worry again.
Dropbox only gives you access to your files within your Dropbox folder. Spotdox allows you to browse, copy, and send, ANY file or folder on your computer to anyone from anywhere.
Now you can move stuff off Dropbox and onto your Mac from any phone or web browser. For instance upload photos while on the road to Dropbox and transfer them to your Mac, freeing up space.
To make sure you are the only one accessing your Mac you must be logged into Dropbox on both the device you are browsing from, and the Mac you are accessing. On top of this you have the ability to add a unique password to each and every Mac. For even more security Spotdox also supports Dropbox two-factor authentication.
On the iOS client app, security is further enhanced. Data between your iPhone/iOS device and your Mac is all encrypted using the OS X password you supply. We have no knowledge of or access to this password.
Spotdox has a database that contains the minimum amount of information required to run our service. For instance, our database does not store passwords in any form – even hashed. We also do not store any access tokens in our database. We use industry standard protection mechanisms to protect our database.
While you are browsing your files we need to hold onto your directory listings and thumbnail images for a few minutes, this information is not stored permanently, and is only accessible by you. We do not share any personal information collected with anyone. When browsing from iOS devices, even this information is encrypted.
We don’t even require an email address to use our services.
