What is Dropbox?

Submitted by No Comment | 575 views

Dropbox is the easiest way to store, sync and share files online and across your computers automatically.

Get Dropbox

Put your files into your Dropbox on one computer, and they’ll be instantly available on any of your other computers that you’ve installed Dropbox on (Windows, Mac, and Linux too!) Because a copy of your files are stored on Dropbox’s secure servers, you can also access them from any computer or mobile device using the Dropbox website.

Dropbox is without a doubt one of my favorite productivity tools. If you never heard of Dropbox check it out at www.dropbox.com

With Dropbox, your files are always in sync

Let’s say you’re editing a document at home. As soon as you click ‘Save’, Dropbox will sync this same file to all your other computers and mobile devices instantly and automatically. It’s as if you saved the document to all of your computers. This gives you the freedom to work on any of your computers and always have the files you need. 2GB of online storage for free, with up to 100GB available to paying customers.

Dropbox lets you share files easily

You can easily share entire folders or photo albums with Dropbox. Simply put the folders you want to share in your Dropbox, and invite people to them. You can also send people links to specific files within your Dropbox. This makes Dropbox perfect for team projects. A "Public" folder that lets you link directly to files in your Dropbox.

With Dropbox, online backup is automatic.

Any file you put into your Dropbox folder is automatically backed up. Even if your computer has a melt-down, your files are safe on Dropbox and can be restored at any time. While the free 2GB account is perfect for backing up your documents, Dropbox offers larger paid accounts (up to 100GB) for backing up your music and video collections too.

Dropbox is Your Personal Time Machine

Dropbox keeps a history of every change you make to your files so that you can undo mistakes and even undelete files. There’s no need to worry about lost work when Dropbox has you covered.
