But you left the laptop you wrote to report on or created the project on and all you have is your work computer or smartphone. Back in the “day”, you were out of luck, but now with so many options for file sharing, the file is only a few mouse clicks or finger taps away. Even better, you can share your document directly with your boss or professor by placing it into a shared account.

There are a wide variety of unique options available. One option is to use a cloud storage service like Google Drive, which allows you to create and store documents on their online server. Depending on the settings anyone can access the files, or just a certain person or group of people can access the file. This is a good way to keep files secure, but to allow one person or multiple people to share and edit them across a wide variety of computers.

Another option is to create documents on your home computer, tablet, or smartphone and then upload it to a cloud storage space using a service like OpenDocument, SugarSync or Carbonite. This way you can create documents using whatever software you want.

But cloud sharing has some major disadvantages. Depending on the size of the file, it can take a long time to upload. And if you have multiple files to share, it can take all day. Sometimes you just don’t have that kind of time or just don’t want to use up all your bandwidth uploading them you need another alternative.

If you created the document online using a file sharing service, you don’t have to worry about upload times, but you may have to worry about download times. Additionally, the files you downloaded may not be compatible with the programs you already own. It may be hard to edit files offline, meaning that you need a constant internet connection to access and edit your files.
