I'm taking a bit of a liberty here and may get my knuckles rapped but I've posted this question to another forum and had zero response. It's not directly "synth and keyboard" related, although it sort of is, at least technology-related. I record and post my recordings on PW and would like to switch to Box.com (I'm hearing dire predictions for Soundcloud, which I've been using).

And when I post to Box.com, my personal information (other files, my name) are showing up faint but readable behind the little box in the centre of the screen with the start button on it. Naturally, I'd like that information not to be there and it's not there on other people's posts that I listen to.

I've contacted Box.com and they seem unable to tell me how to fix this. So …. this being a forum full of technology-savvy people, I thought maybe somebody could tell me what I'm doing wrong here. I'm baffled.

I'm sorry I can't help you directly with your issue but I will share what I can. Firstly, I find Box client software and syncing features to be half baked. When I started to use it I found all sort of nagging issues like no support for multiple users to edit documents, strange behavior when sharing files with extensions Box didn't recognise so wouldn't sync. I uninstalled and have never looked back.

There are many cloud storage solutions at the moment. All of them have free and pay options. You should create an account specifically for sharing your music that doesn't refer to anything personal you don't want to share. There is Microsoft's One Drive, Google Drive, and DropBox. I find DropBox by far to be the easiest to use, the client software you install on your computer works very well. Syncing and syncing options are well thought out. It's easy to set up sharing of a folder or files with privileges. You can easily create links to files for sharing through email with non descriptive links. In everyday use the greatest complement I can give the developers of Drop Box is, it just works.

Best advice I can give is switch.

ElmerJFudd - Thanks very much for that information ! The whole "cloud storage" thing is a bit of a gap in my techno-knowledge and I didn't actually think of that option, looking for a different one. I've really liked using Soundcloud but we'll see whether they stay afloat or not. In the meantime I'd like to post my music to another place and will check into the three you suggested. Great advice, much appreciated.
