Dropbox: Managing Your Files Everywhere You Go

Managing files between computers and mobile devices has just got a lot easier with the help from the folks at Dropbox. Dropbox is service which allows you to store your files on a cloud network (which means an Internet-based network, whereby shared resources, software, and information are provided to computers and other devices on demand)

The benefits of Dropbox includes automatic syncing when new files or changes are detected, automatic backup of your files, and the ability to restore previous versions of your files.Dropbox is available for Windows, OSX and Linux a free Dropbox application for iPhoneiPad, and Android, which lets you access your files anywhere you go. For Blackberry users a mobile-optimized version of the website is also available for owners of Blackberry phones and other Internet-capable mobile devices. 

Dropbox's pricing plans start with the Basic plan which is 2 GB of storage for free. A Pro 50 plan of 50 GB for 9.99/month and the Pro 100 of 100 GB for 19.99/month. Every time you refer a person to Dropbox, you get an extra 250MB added to your account for free with a maximum of 8GB.

Personally haven't been much interested in internet-based storage services as they're too reliant on connectivity

great tip dude.
thx for the comment.

Off site backup like this has some pros and cons. For instance if you house burns down it can take your local backups with it.

But I don't think I could ever fully trust a company privacy wise.

BLUERAD said...

This is really useful, but i agree with the security issues, but then again anyone who jailbreaks their iphone, uses limewire, torrenting sites, etc. Aren't exactly in the safest position so,... *(shrugs*

It's a great tip, bro. I use this on my PC and I have the app. I'm using it to exchange files on a project I'm working on with people around the country. It's very handy.
