Well, you would have to, right? Otherwise you could post something in the public folder and then sue your buddy (and probably Dropbox, too) for downloading it.
That's what stops me from using it or any of these things much. My files are all on encrypted volumes, which present as single large (8Gb each) files that I back up daily (cron job) by copying the single whole file to another drive. Once and awhile, I burn DVDs and put them somewhere else.
Even the smallest change to a text file on a volume, though, would change the whole overall volume, which a service like this only sees as a single large file, so that'd be 8 or 16Gb back and forth for every tiny change.
@Mikey-San is spot on. WebDAV as a protocol isn't shit. In fact it is pretty lightweight and even kind of graceful. But the Finder's WebDAV implementation is complete and utter shit. Speaking as someone in the middle of writing a WebDAV server…
