Dropbox is software that links all of your computers together via a single folder. It’s an easy way to back up and sync files between computers.
The Dropbox Desktop Application is software that watches a folder on your desktop computer and syncs any changes to the web and to your other computers.
The Dropbox Website allows you to access your files on any computer from a web browser. You can also use the Dropbox website to share your files or folders with others.
The Dropbox mobile website and Dropbox for mobile devices allow you to connect to your Dropbox from your pocket, so you can take your files with you wherever you go.
Transferring data between computers usually requires uploading via web forms, connecting to network drives, carrying around thumb drives, or sending emails with attachments to yourself and others. Dropbox makes all of these methods obsolete.
The free download provides 2 GB of usable space. Additional space is available for $9.99 (50GB) and $19.99 (100GB) per month.
Windows, Mac and Linux compatible.
All files stored on Dropbox servers are encrypted (AES-256) and are inaccessible without your account password. Public files are only viewable by people who have a link to the file(s). Public folders are not browsable or searchable
