    Dropbox


    source - Dropbox - Home - Online backup, file sync and sharing made easy.

    This is a free app with a 2GB limit, if you need more storage then it will cost you.



    Dropbox is software that syncs your files online and across 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.

    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.

    Dropbox replaces:
    • Emailing file attachments to yourself and other people
    • Using USB drives to move files between computers
    • Renaming files to keep a history of previous versions
    • Complicated backup software and hardware
    • And more!


    [SPOILER="list of features"]File Sync

    Dropbox allows you to sync your files online and across your computers automatically.
    • 2GB of online storage for free, with up to 100GB available to paying customers.
    • Sync files of any size or type.
    • Sync Windows, Mac and Linux computers.
    • Automatically syncs when new files or changes are detected.
    • Work on files in your Dropbox even if you're offline. Your changes sync once your computer has an Internet connection again.
    • Dropbox transfers will correctly resume where they left off if the connection drops.
    • Efficient sync - only the pieces of a file that changed (not the whole file) are synced. This saves you time.
    • Doesn't hog your Internet connection. You can manually set bandwidth limits.


    File Sharing

    Sharing files is simple and can be done with only a few clicks.
    • Shared folders allow several people to collaborate on a set of files.
    • You can see other people's changes instantly.
    • A "Public" folder that lets you link directly to files in your Dropbox.
    • Control who is able to access shared folders (including ability to kick people out and remove the shared files from their computers).
    • Automatically create shareable online photo galleries from folders of photos in your Dropbox.


    Online Backup


    Dropbox backs up your files online without you having to think about it.
    • Automatic backup of your files.
    • Undelete files and folders.
    • Restore previous versions of your files.
    • 30 days of undo history, with unlimited undo available as a paid option.


    Web Access

    A copy of your files are stored on Dropbox's secure servers. This lets you access them from any computer or mobile device.
    • Manipulate files as you would on your desktop - add, edit, delete, rename etc.
    • Search your entire Dropbox for files.
    • A "Recent Events" feed that shows you a summary of activity in your Dropbox.
    • Create shared folders and invite people to them.
    • Recover previous versions of any file or undelete deleted files.
    • View photo galleries created automatically from photos in your Dropbox.


    Security & Privacy

    Dropbox takes the security and privacy of your files very seriously.
    • Shared folders are viewable only by people you invite.
    • All transmission of file data and metadata occurs over an encrypted channel (SSL).
    • All files stored on Dropbox servers are encrypted (AES-256) and are inaccessible without your account password.
    • Dropbox website and client software have been hardened against attacks from hackers.
    • Dropbox employees are not able to view any user's files.
    • Online access to your files requires your username and password.
    • Public files are only viewable by people who have a link to the file(s). Public folders are not browsable or searchable.


    Mobile Device Access

    The free Dropbox application for iPhone, iPad, and Android lets you:
    • Access your Dropbox on the go.
    • View files from within the application.
    • Download files for offline viewing.
    • Take photos and videos and sync them to your Dropbox.
    • Share links to files in your Dropbox.
    • Export your files to other applications.
    • Sync downloaded files so they're up-to-date.

    I had this installed a while back, but never did anything much with it. Actually forgot about it.
    Sent from my van, down by the river.




    Never quantify your life by comparison. It is always going to be apples to oranges. If you feel the need to always look down on others, you currently do not own enough mirrors------ Tommie Griffin.

    It helps out if you have things you want to share with familay members and friends, I like it better than mediafire for uploading my private stuff. Plus, with the bigger files, download times are almost nonexistent for the other person.

    I've been using DropBox for a while myself. Used it to Share stuff publicly as well as between friends. Even have it installed on my iPod Touch.
