How to Use Dropbox Facility for Your Files


Hi Michael.

I use Dropbox myself. This program is really comfortable to use. All you need to do is just link your email address to Dropbox when you will register. And there will be icon all files you drop to this icon will be saved relative to its size. You can use it anywhere and anytime. It is really high security no one can get access to your file. As a real opinion uses it, it's worth it. If you find it difficult to understand the interface let me know.

Jackly Donse.

How to Use Dropbox Facility for Your Files


Dropbox is also good if you are looking for an online storage to store your files. It is a file hosting service operated by Dropbox, Inc., an American company headquartered in San Francisco, California. It offers cloud storage, file synchronization, personal cloud, and client software. Dropbox was founded by MIT students Arash Ferdowsi and Drew Houston in 2007 as a startup company.

Dropbox offers a not so big online storage. For free accounts, you will have 2 GB of free online or cloud storage. If you need a cloud storage with bigger space, you can try Google Drive which offers 15 GB of free online storage. To try Dropbox, go to Dropbox Home page then click “create an account”. Fill up the form and enter a valid email address.

When you are done, check “I agree to Dropbox terms” then click on the “Create an account” button next to it. Once your account is created, Dropbox needs to verify your email address. Log in to your email account and open the message sent by Dropbox. Click on the verification link to verify your email address with Dropbox.

Now, uploading files to your Dropbox account can be done in two ways: you can download the Dropbox client and install it on your computer for easy synchronization or upload using a web browser. If you select to download the client, the downside is that everything you store on your Dropbox storage will be synchronized to your hard drive.

This means whatever you store up there will be downloaded to your hard drive because of the synchronization process. If you delete a file from the folder you set for use with Dropbox, the client will download the file again back to the folder.

The advantage of using the client is that you can upload file of any size as long as it doesn’t go beyond the remaining space of your account. If you don’t want to use the client, you can select to upload using the web browser. When you upload via the web browser, the maximum size of the file you can upload is 20 GB.
