Dropbox – A great tool for syncing your data

If you’re anything like me, you’ll have pictures, music, data files (and goodness knows what else) saved on quite a few devices.   Wouldn’t it be nice to bring all those file into one place??

Whatever devices you use, whether it be your Laptop, Desktop, iPhone, iPod, iPad and even your PC at work, wherever your files are saved, you can use Dropbox to bring them all into one place. 

It works with Windows, Mac and Linux too.  It’s also very easy to use – so lets take a closer look!

What is Dropbox?

Dropbox is basically software that syncs all your files online and across your devices.

If you store files from your Laptop into your Dropbox, they’ll be instantly available on any of your other devices that you’ve installed Dropbox on.  Dropbox works with Windows, Mac, and Linux!  And, because a copy of your files are stored on Dropbox’s secure servers, you can also access them from any of your devices simply by logging into to your account using the Dropbox website.

Dropbox offers an initial 2Gb of space, absoulutely free.  However, if you have more then 2Gb of data strewn across your many devices (which I’m guessing most people do!) then Dropbox do offer a paid subscription service, which offers users more space.   

You can get either 50Gb of space for $9.99 a month, or up to 100Gb of space for $19.99 a month, which is great for syncing your music collection, photos or movies.

I’ve been using Dropbox for a few days now and will continue to do so as it’s a very good application.  It’s easy to use and best of all, it’s free.
