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.
