dropbox: not sandbox :-(

How cool would it be, if the dropbox for sharepoint would be a sandbox solution. You could even use it on Office 365 !

I haven't had a look at the code, but is this idea far from reality?

Hi Richie,

Indeed, that could have been a good idea but targetting the user profiles from a SandBoxed without a full trust proxy is not possible and as you have probably noticed, the DropBox is in the middle of the User Profiles.

Before launching the Silverlight App, I need to determine some contextual variables requiring a connection to the User Profiles. So, I couldn't achieve that from a SandBoxed.
