It's for a relatively small group of people (unlikely to exceed 30). I'd like it to work as much as Dropbox as possible, i.e., user runs a program in the background, and it syncs a local folder's files with one on the server.

Filesystem-like access to remote files won't do -- it has to be a synchronization program like Dropbox.

The free version comes with 2GB of space. Do you need more? – quanta Aug 1 '11 at 2:39
If it was free and easy everyone would do it. They've got the secret sauce, which is why they can charge. – Chris S Aug 1 '11 at 3:01

Have a look at SparkleShare - an open-source alternative to Dropbox which is built on Git.

Unfortunately it is only available for Linux and Mac OS at this point in time.

May be rsync?

don't understand why this was down-voted... rsync is a very reasonable, secure and fast solution... if people are going to down-vote at least provide a reason... – Silverfire Aug 1 '11 at 5:32
