As someone who works with several different computers throughout the day, Dropbox is one of the few applications I install on each one of them. Dropbox is a free app that lets you sync all your files online and across all your computers, whether they are running Windows, Mac or Linux. It’s seamless and transparent which is what makes it so cool. In this Dropbox review, I’m going to show you what it can do, and how it has been helping my online business.
To get started with Dropbox, you need to install the client on each computer you want to install it on. If you are new to Dropbox, then the you will create a Dropbox account during the initial install. Otherwise, you can enter your Dropbox account info to sync files to your existing account. Upon completion, the installer will then create a single Dropbox folder on your computer. Any folders and files created in this Dropbox folder will be synced online and across any other computers linked to your account.
With my Dropbox setup, I can now work with my files much more effectively. It’s just an efficient way to transfer files I’m working on back and forth between computers. For example, any articles I create can be put in my Dropbox so I can work and use them anywhere. I also can sync my Market Samurai projects and my SENuke projects in there so I always have access to them wherever I am working. If you have important files to backup, Dropbox is great for that as well.
Having a Dropbox is also great for outsourcing. Since it’s free, I can easily get my outsource workers to download and install it on their own computers. Then I can create separate folders for each of my outsource workers and give them access to the files they need. In addition, Dropbox keeps a revision history of all your files so if you or your workers accidentally delete a file, you can easily recover it.
With Dropbox, file syncing has never been easier. A free Dropbox account gives you 2 gigabytes of storage which is good enough for more people. It’s simple to use and I can’t imagine working without it now. Download it today and start incorporating Dropbox into your workflow.
