Re: Backups

Yeah, you should both be able to use it without an issue as long as you're willing to share your login/password. You're spot on about it being different from Dropbox. It doesn't do anything unless you tell it to. There's no syncing or copying or whatever, it just sits there and holds the files you send it. It sounds like that'd be a perfect solution for both you and the wife to get a safe backup.

Amazon has their own software (as does Backblaze and Crashplan) that allows scheduling and stats and whatnot. You can also use third party software. The aforementioned Duplicati will sync to ACD, as will the incredibly powerful if not quite as user friendly rclone. I haven't used their stock software much, but the little I played with it it looks fully featured and useful for most tasks.
