The folder wwwhome is used if you want to publish a website on DriveHQ. While not our main business, we do have some users who publish website with us, e.g.: http://edith.drivehq.com/

DriveHQShare is a special virtual folder. You cannot delete this folder. When another DriveHQ member share a folder to you, the shared folder will be linked in this virtual folder. This way, no need to click on a share link, or logon with a share password.  You can simply logon your own account and access all folders shared to you by others from the same location.

PublicFolder is also a default folder for publishing files. By default, all files are secure and private, which means files cannot be accessed without logon; thus, files cannot be linked from other websites. If you are a true or paid user, you can publish a folder, thus files can be linked from other websites, such as eBay or MySpace, etc.

Please make sure you install DriveHQ FileManager, the best software for upload/download/manage/folder synchronization/Sharing/publishing.

Thx for the reply.  I was just comparing services and was wondering if you could tell me what the key differences were between Drive HQ and, say, Xdrive or OmniDrive?  Unbiased of course!
