Bring your files everywhere you go with DropboxFabian Piau | Saturday June 18th, 2011 - 10:27 PM
Dropbox is a sharing “box” where you can sync any type of file. It’s a kind of mini personal SVN…
Any file you save to Dropbox also instantly saves to your computers (and your smartphones), and the Dropbox website.
Extensible storage space
At first, you have 2 Gb of online storage. Then you can extend your Dropbox up to 8 Gb through invitations. There are also two premium subscriptions, 50 and 100 Gb.
Also, an invited user get an extra 250 Mb of Dropbox storage.
Dropbox works with most systems : Windows, Mac, Linux, iPad, iPhone, Android and BlackBerry. I am using it with Windows 7, XP and Ubuntu, Dropbox is fully integrated to the system with notifications, a context menu, small icons on synchronizing files…
Advanced file management
Dropbox keeps a one-month history of your files. You can restore deleted files (or permanently delete them), any changes can be undone… You can also select folders that you do not want to synchronize.
The bandwidth used by Dropbox may be set manually to avoid hogging your connection. The Dropbox works even when offline, it will synchronize the next time you will be connected.
You can easily share a folder of your Dropbox with another user, he will access it from his own Dropbox. You can use public links to share files with people not registered on Dropbox. Finally, a folder containing photos can be viewed as a gallery / slideshow on the website of Dropbox.
I use this software recently and now I can’t do without ! I invite you to use this link to create your account and get the 250 Mb of extra storage.
