Is there anything like SVN but free where you can store files and the rest of your team can see it.

This would help alot.

Thanks from Kyle

SVN is actually free. Dropbox works well. Google Docs is great for collaboration.

I thought you gotta pay for a SVN server thing.

There is paid hosting available but there are also free ones or you can host yourself (I have installed on a home PC before).

Thanks but I cant do anything I keep getting

"Server sent unexpected return value (403 Forbidden) in response to OPTIONS"
What does this mean.

Telling me the error without context makes it difficult to know what is going on. Where are you getting the error? How are you getting the error? What are you trying to?

I am trying to export the files, but it comes up with that trough msn

How did MSN come into a problem that involves SVN? Are you trying to export the files from the SVN server? What SVN client are you using?

As an aside, do you know how to use SVN?

Are there files on the server already?

Nope there is not.

Then you can't export. How do you export something from the server when the server is empty?

Do you know how to use SVN or more importantly, what it is primary for? If not, I highly recommend using either Dropbox and a shared account or Google Docs.

Edit: SVN export downloads a 'clean' version of the repository from the server (no SVN metadata).

I would have to second the Dropbox idea; you get 2 GB of synced storage which everyone on your project can share without ever having to hit refresh. Downside is that, if you break your local copy, you just broke everyone else's local copy too.

If you want to give it a try (take a look at whether it will work for you) this link will also give you an extra 250MB to play around with - https://www.getdropbox.com/referrals/NTg5NzMxNDk

The question is: Do you need version control? If not then SVN is a poor choice. If you do and you are mainly storing binary files (Word docs, images, etc), then Dropbox has some revision support and is probably the better choice.
