Dropbox – super easy file sharing and auto-sync
Dropbox is software that syncs your files online and across all of your computers.
Put your files into your Dropbox on one computer, and they’ll be instantly available on any of your other computers that also have Dropbox installed (Windows, Mac, and Linux too!). Because copies 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.
With Dropbox, your files are always in sync.
Let’s say you’re editing a document in the Dropbox folder at home. As soon as you press Save, Dropbox will sync this 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 anywhere and always have the files you need.
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.
With Dropbox, online backup is automatic.
Any file you put into your Dropbox folder is automatically backed up to their servers. 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, they offer larger accounts (up to 100GB) for backing up your music and video collections.
Dropbox lets you go back in time to undelete or undo changes to files.
Every time you save a file in Dropbox, Dropbox syncs it to their secure servers. Dropbox keeps a history of every change you make so that you can undo any mistakes and even undelete files. By default, they keep 30 days of history for all your files. There’s also have an unlimited undo option called “Pack-rat”.
A free Dropbox account comes with 2GB of space that you can use for as long as you like. If you need more than 2GB they have Pro 50 and Pro 100 plans available for a small monthly fee.
But wait – there’s more…. how about free apps for your Blackberry, iPhone, iPad or Android?
