Access Your Files From Anywhere Using Dropbox

Have you ever went some where and needed to bring some files with you but you forgot to put them on your flash drive or lost the flash drive on the way there? Well there is a simple solution to this and it's called Dropbox. Dropbox is an online storage site that lets you store your files there so that whenever and where ever you need to have access to your files you can just download them from their server.

Dropbox is very simple to use all you need to do is download the program from the main page. Install it and follow the on screen instructions. You will then be asked to create an account so that you will be able to access your files securely via the web. Once all of this is completed you will have a folder that is designated for your Dropbox files. The default is My Documents/My Dropbox. Any files that you put into this folder will be uploaded to the Dropbox site. You may want to be careful with how many files you put in it because if you are using the free version you will only get 2 GB's of space which isn't that much if you have a ton of photos like I do.
