Hi Cameron:
I am using Dropbox more and more. It's very handy for sending files to clients that are too large for yousendit.com.
AND the clients can access a custom link without having to have a Dropbox account. The gov't employees have such trouble accessing FTP sites, and they can't add software to their computers. So an easy downloadable file is very handy.

I know it's not quite the same, but I use Dropbox as a storage site for everything.  When I'm done with a project, I tell my computer to delete the file but keep it on Dropbox.  If I need it again, I download whatever part i'm looking for or simply re-instate the folder on my machine.  As a result, when my machine died last summer all I had to do was switch machines and sync the dropbox, and I was back in business.  No worries of external hard drive failure or loss. 

It can be a little expensive, but I've got a deal with them for 1k/year of unlimited storage so we've got like 5TB of files up there floating around in the cloud. That plus no worries about data loss.
