Dropbox: Keep your files safe!

Do you want to save time and headaches? You need to start to use Dropbox right now!

Would you like to be able to open your files in every place anytime? With Dropbox, you can do this and more! Forget using Pendrive or internal storage on your computer. With Dropbox, you can upload all your files in the cloud, open anywhere in the world. Your account is locked with a username and password that you create.

How does it work?

It’s really simple! Dropbox offers several services for your data. You can start with a free account and upgrade as you go. After creating an account you just need to login and start to upload, using the browser or an official software that you can install on your computer/smartphone/iPad/tablet, etc….

When you upload a file on dropbox, these files will be stored on a server -cloud, not on your computer, so you just need to connect to the internet, login and start using your files.

What can I do with Dropbox?

Dropbox is a cloud storage service that means you will be able to open your files in any place in the world in different devices, you can also transfer and share the files with another person. You just need to create a link and send it. Easy pease. Just like that. So, let’s say you need to send several files and folders to someone, do you send by email or literally send a Pendrive? With dropbox, you just need to create a link and send it. Done!

The best part is that your files are secured. Let’s say you asked a designer to do all your brand, and you saved all the files on your computer, in the next day your computer broke and you are no longer able to recover the files from your hard drive, what you do? Usually, files lost like that are very difficult to have it back, and if your computer is stolen, then is harder to get the files back. But, if you upload on the cloud using Dropbox, you can stay calm because at least your important files are saved. Just login to your account and download it to your new computer!

Uploading Files

When you upload a file to Dropbox you can start to enjoy several benefits, like having a secure place for your files, access any time and any place, and also gives you the possibility to share your files with anyone you want. By simply sending a link of the specific folder or a direct file it will be possible to download without having access to any other item in your Dropbox. Or you can also send a request file, let’s say someone need to send you a video, photo or document, but they don’t have a Dropbox account, you just need to send a request link, when the person open the link it will request to drag the files to that link and as soon it finishes the upload you will have the file right in your dropbox.

Oh, and it is important to check if the files you had finish to upload in your account before closing the browser or turning off the computer:

  • Blue arrow: File is uploading.
  • Green check: File is done uploading.
  • Red X: File upload was unsuccessful.

I hope I could help you with the decision of how to keep all your important files safe and ready to use in any place! This is not a published post, I’m just sharing my personal thoughts about this software after more than five years using the free and pro version.
