Dropbox is a free service that allows you to easily store and share your documents, videos, and photos and always have them on-hand when you need them.
Although, there are other Cloud services available, I use Dropbox because it is simple and functional. I mainly use it store important documents, pictures of my kids that I share out to family and friends, and enjoy the convenience of not having to sync anything.
Here are some reasons other reasons why I use Dropbox.
Free 1 of 7
Once you sign up for the service you are provided with 2GB of free storage space. Depending on what you want to use it for, it may not sound like a lot, but there are ways to gain additional storage space. Aside from upgrading your account to a Pro or Business, you can invite friends to join, connect your Facebook and Twitter accounts, and tell them why you love them.
Convenient 2 of 7
If you thoroughly enjoy simplicity like I do, this is a great tool to use.
No fuss backup 3 of 7
Be confident in knowing Dropbox securely backs up your work so you don't have to worry about ever losing it.
Syncs devices 4 of 7
Dropbox saves your files throughout all of your devices. Know that all your work is readily available to you no matter what device you are using at the moment or where you are.
Restores files 5 of 7
Deleted something? No worries, anything in your Dropbox folder can be restored. Dropbox stores your folder for 30 days before it is gone forever. This amazing feature will save you tons of hours reworking or re-adding documents.
Dropbox app 6 of 7
Tablets and smartphones can do a lot, but what they can't do is store massive amounts of data. It is not what they are meant for. With the Dropbox app, you can easily use your device to work or view only the files you need.
Easy sharing 7 of 7
Share those images from your job, an event you attended or images of the field trip you chaperoned with other parents.
