I personally use Dropbox (paid version) and it works well enough, but it's not perfect and one must be very careful to avoid messing up the library.
I did not suggest it was a convenient solution, or even easy - but you suggested it was not even possible. Which is false.

I meant it's not possible to edit and save the edited version directly in the server, like you can in the desktop program. You have to download the book and use another program for editing, then upload again. Naturally one can download the files from the server and then do whatever one wants with them, that's the whole point of the server. But it's not possible to do it within the server itself, on the spot.
