If you ever need to access files on more than one computer, and you haven’t heard of Dropbox, I can’t recommend more highly checking out their service. On top of that, I have only read glowing feedback on-line from others, which has been my experience.
I am not exagerating by saying that dropbox was for me the easiest and most user-friendly application I have ever had to install and get up and running. The learning curve to have this application serving your needs quickly so you could move on to other things you want to be doing – was almost nothing. I would even go so far as to say it would be a stretch to say you have to even “learn” how to use it. Not only have they made it incredibaly easy and simple, but they even hold your hand in explaining how to use it, kind of like, if you add 2 and 2 together, your will get 4. You can be sleep deprived and multi-tasking, and you will understand it.
After setting it up, you have a folder, just like any other folder, in which you can save, edit and delete files, just like you normally do. Except all of those files will automatically synced with any other computer you have set-up with that same dropbox account. And if you are away from your computer and need to access those files using another computer, you can login to your account with Dropbox and access those files that way as well.
Runs automatically. Super Secure. You can also have a folder specified to for sharing so you can invite others to view or collaborate with you live. They have a free iPhone app so you can sync with your iPhone, if you have one. And there is more, but I think you get the point. Check it out, try it, use it.
And the price – Free for the first 2 GB. That is a lot of free space. For some people, you won’t need more. For me, and how I plan to use it, I don’t actually need more space. From there you can upgrade to $9.99 for 50 GB, or $19.99 for 100 GB.
I think that about says it. Check it now – visit Dropbox.
