A Customer has asked me to investigate Dorpbox for business or something similar as an alternative. I had a look at skydrive, but I can't see where specifically it says if you can control access to files and folders per user other than with AD intergration which this customer doesn't use. 

Dropbox is also (moderately) expensive compared to the $2 for Skydrive. 

Anyone recommend another solution?

Need the ability to backup locally.

Office 365?
1TB per user :)

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

OneDrive (formerly known as SkyDrive) does support assigning access to users for individual files and folders btw.

Do whatever you want to do man.
