Nice with all this new stuff but i do have a question i feel is high issue for me anyway.
The Hightail main folder when installing Hightail is in ~user/username and i hate that.
I want to have my main folders on a external drive like i have with my Dropbox folders.
How is that possible with Hightail. Don't tell me you didn't think of that
Hope to get an answer soon.

I'm having the same issue too with Hightail. All of my other file storage/sharing programs like Dropbox, Google Drive, and SkyDrive offer the ability to move their default folder locations to a custom location (in my case on a second drive) which I've done on on my desktop and one of my laptops that has two internal drives for extra storage. My System drive is merely a 238 GB Solid State Drive so it really rules it out for serious storage and thus the need for a second mechanical drive in my line of work.
I hope this issue with the desktop app is rectified soon as I found the old YouSendIt service very handy until the likes of Dropbox came along. A business associate sent me some large high resolution music files via Hightail (which I hadn't used in a long time) recently from a record date I was on. This prompted me to install the desktop program in hopes of getting client-side storage and customizing the Hightail folder's location on my machines. After doing so I noticed the limitation of Hightail compared to the other major file sharing/cloud storage services.
I just subscribed to this post and look forward to Hightail adding the option to move the main folder. As relatively small Solid State Drives are becoming more common without the ability to customize the Hightail main folder your service is less of a viable option for those receiving and storing large files.
In the meantime I'm happy that there is at least an offline desktop storage option so that I can just gather the files and move them over to my Dropbox folder storage on my secondary drives.
