I decided to do this for a couple of reasons.
I've grown a little tired of DropBox taking a lot of resources to sync files that haven't changed. Sometimes, I'll see my computer seemingly ground to a halt for while as DropBox tries to re-index everything. I use it on my families computer and they are already not a fan of the other little utilities that take up resources.
I want to experiment with some other tools. DropBox is still the defacto tool for sync for a lot of people. I still have it installed on my devices1, but I see a lot of new applications that would allow me to be a lot more flexible. For example, if I place the files in a git repo, I can have more control of sharing and version history.
It's where I currently place my resumé and other related stuff to easily send to others. ↩
