A service like Dropbox should be able to do this for you. It'll sync the files up to the web, and then your PC (with Dropbox installed) should pull them down.

The usual caveat applies: "you are copying your files who-knows-where into the cloud, do you trust the file-sync provider?" –  Piskvor Aug 22 '11 at 15:37

Well of course this works, but I hope there is a quicker, better, more straightforward way.

With so many alternatives this days, the best options tends to be an application that allows us to work with multiple solutions.

FolderSync and the free version FolderSync Lite, both by Tacit Dynamics available from Google Play Store, allows us to do just that:

FolderSync enables easy sync of files between cloud storage and Android devices.

FolderSync is a application that enables simple sync to cloud based storage to and from local folders on the device memory card. It currently support multiple SkyDrive, Dropbox, SugarSync, Ubuntu One, Box.net, LiveDrive, HiDrive, Google Drive, Google Docs, NetDocuments, Amazon S3, FTP, FTPS, SFTP, WebDAV or windows share (Samba/CIFS) accounts, and support for more platforms are planned.

Could you explain why? And how to send files with this to a Mac or Linux PC? –  Izzy Oct 7 '12 at 22:25
