Drop Box: For File Sharing & Mobile Storage

abstract:These days a lot of people use multiple devices from different locations that they don't necessarily want completely replicated with the same functions or information. Dropbox lets you share files between devices and between others, regardless of the operating system! You might be at the office and want to access files from there after you've left for work. If you drop box them before you head out, they'll be available in your folder on your computer at home. Or say you have a project you are collaborating with a partner in another location, you want to send them a file that's too big to e-mail and you don't want to go through the hassle of uploading it to a server, or transferring via a memory stick. So Dropbox it. Unlike other programs, Dropbox doesn't have a complicated interface to learn. It's built right into your desktop!

Get started by downloading the program to your applications folder from http://www.dropbox.com. Now look for a little blue open box icon that appears on your computer screen window at the top next to date and time:

Step 1: Drag and drop any file or folder into your Dropbox folder.

Step 2: Once your file/folder is inside your Dropbox folder, the program immediately starts syncing it to our secure servers. Once this has finished, the file's icon is marked with a green check. Your file is now safely backed up online and also accessible from the Dropbox website. (http://www.getdropbox.com)

Step 3: Install Dropbox (http://www.getdropbox.com/install) on other computers you use, and they'll also receive a copy of the files you've put in your Dropbox.

That's it! Now that Dropbox is watching your file, any changes you make will sync up instantly and automatically. This gives you the freedom to work on any computer you choose. For more help adding files to Dropbox, see here: https://www.getdropbox.com/help/90
