If you want to make sure that your files completely secured and backed up, you probably might have heard of Dropbox, a file backup solutions provider that sync your files through your computer and the Dropbox website.

Dropbox have an easy to use interface although it can be confusing at times. It comes with downloadable software that will sync your files across your chosen networks and can be easily accessible anytime.

Recently, then have released their iPhone app which is available for free from the App Store and is 3.0 compatible. You may also expect that future update would include optional passcode locking, better images handling and loads of value added additions. For non-iPhone users, you can also hope for mobile apps soon.

Before I even forget, then have moved to their new home, it’s now www.dropbox.com. Just to set expectations, their service is free only for 2G storage accounts so expect an additional cost for excess usage.

I’m not really a big fan of Dropbox because the first time I used it was last year and unfortunately it doesn’t suit my taste. If you’re planning on synching files especially large folders, you can’t always expect that it will always be fast because still, it all depends on your internet connection speed.

    All online backup systems have that problem. Large files plus low bandwidth equal frustrated consumer. Of course speeds are going up across the board, but I’m sure people will just have larger files! The other thing about an online backup is having to have an internet connnection to get your files and the possible failure of said backup. As T-Mobile.

    Hi Charles,
    Very true. I don’t know if such scenario would ever change. I’m better off uploading files on my web server than securing services such as these. They may have some premium account options but considering the amount of space and resources they dedicate to their services, it’s sometimes just a waste of money.

    Thanks for leaving a comment Charles, I really do appreciate it.

    Hey John, I’m not really sure if they offer backing up blogs however you can sync your files there if you have an account.
