I expressed my gratitude to a couple of friends recently when I received 2 notifications to a service for DropBox.com. After playing around with it for all of 2 minutes, I was hooked! It is very cool!
I use many different computers – using DropBox I can put something in ‘The Cloud’ and access it anywhere. What I like about it is the following:
1. You can get a 2 gig account for free!
2. I can access it anywhere.
3. It is not just web based! I get a folder created on my computer that I just drop things in and it is now available for me anywhere. One thing to be aware of – when you drag and drop something from your computer to the DropBox folder, it is a MOVE (not a copy). It will no longer be on, say your desktop, but in that folder on your computer.
4. This is cool… You can authorize other DropBox users to a specific folder and now you can both share documents. I was able to send a folder of 1 gig of pictures to a friend and he gets them almost instantly!
It is really cool! You can check it our here: DropBox.com – they have a nice short video you can watch to get an idea of what they do.
By the way – This link is a referral link. The account you create is free. If you use this link, I get an extra .25 gig of space, and so do you. This is not shared space – we each get it. And using my link does not share your stuff with me. If you upgrade and get more space by paying, I do not think there is any money to me.
When you get an account, you can also refer people to get more free space.
I hope you can find a use for this. Again, use my link and we both get extra space. You can also go directly to their home page and sign up dropbox dot com. I will not be offended if you don’t want the extra space.
