Dropbox is a free service that lets you bring all your photos, docs, and videos anywhere. This means that any file you save to your Dropbox will automatically save to all your computers, phones and even the Dropbox website.
Dropbox vs Gmail
Dropbox is a file backup service. You may wonder why you want to use a online backup service when you already a Gmail where you can attach all your important files as email. And also Gmail offers a plenty of storage. Then why Dropbox.
Dropbox is Simple
Now to upload something into Gmail you have to open your Gmail, type in the passwords , login, compose mail, attach your files and then save it. But with Dropbox you simply have to save your files in a folder called Dropbox that is next to your “My Documents” folders. Its as simple as saving a file in My Documents Folder.
After you install the software on your computer you just need to register for a username and password and then you are all setup. The files you add to the folder will be backed up when you are connected to the internet. You dont have to do anything. All the backed up files can also be viewed from their website at dropbox.com also. So no more regrets that you forgot your laptop at home
Dropbox is Free
So people its good to save your project work or thesis in dropbox so that even if your computer crashes or is infected with virus, your work is safe.
(P.S. I know how torturous it is when we lose our typed word doc or forget to save it)
