Dropbox: Sharing, Syncing, and Automated Back-up

(Here’s a tool that you’ll want to have and I’ve added a special BONUS @ the end)

If you haven’t already done so, get your FREE 2GB Dropbox account and STOP:

  • Emailing file attachments, especially ones to yourself
  • Using sneaker net (using a USB drive to move files between computers)
  • Renaming files for version history (Dropbox can be configured to do it for you automatically)
  • … or BEGIN … backing up your critical files

Want to know more ….

File Sync – in addition to syncing files across your computers, Dropbox enables you to work offline and your changes sync once you reconnect.

File Sharing – share files, photos, and/or folders with those you choose to allow access.

Backup – automatically backup your files with the ability to restore previous versions & 30 days of “undo”.

Web Access – enables access from any computer or mobile device and includes a summary of activity in your Dropbox account.

Security & Privacy – file transmission uses SSL and stored files are encrypted.  Your shared files are only viewable by those you’ve provided with the link.

Mobile – they even have free mobile applications for iPhone & Pad, Android, and Blackberry with my favorite feature being the ability to take photos and videos and sync them to your Dropbox.

So here’s the BONUS!  Just follow this link, http://db.tt/1ouAHEP, and get an extra 250 MB of free space … for a total 2.25 GB.
