Paolo,

I have used dropbox for this before Cubby.  The difference between the
two is that I purchase a Cubby plan for about $50 a year that includes
100GB of cloud storage.  I use this as a backup for important work
files, but mostly, I pay this price to have the direct-sync feature
which allows me to sync as much data as I want (limited only by my
local storage space) to as many computers as I want.

For example, I keep all of my work files synced on three computers
(laptop, home desktop, and work desktop).  But, I only sync my music
and photography files on my home desktop and laptop.

Unless you want that kind of feature, essentially unlimited synced
files and computers, the free dropbox account will nicely keep your
ado files straight.

Best,
Alan

However, when you run -adoupdate- Stata does not seem to have a list of the installed ado files. So I wonder if there is a file with the list that is updated every time you install an ado that -adoupdate- reads and we ought to copy as well.
