Drop it in to 'DropBox'

This is a magical thing who are mostly involve in the data transfers. Because it's really good opportunity to personal file storage, sharing and syncing which no one ever seems. It makes online storage and sharing of files dead simple as simple as dragging files into specially local folders.

After downloaded this software,it is simple to install (it works on both Windows and Mac) and integrates with the file browser. It runs quietly in the background. You create folders inside the DropBox folder and then just drag and drop them. And the files are constantly synced with your online storage locker any time a file is changed, the changes are sent to the online folders, which can be accessed via a web browser even if your home machine is shut off.

What’s really cool is that the system keeps revised versions of the files as backup, just in case you accidentally erase or damage the “live” version of a document. You can click and share the “URLs” of every file with anyone by simply sending them an email.

At the very least, you can use Dropbox to automatically backup a subset of your files, and to access them when traveling. And also you can use the service to easily share files with friends. Just right click on a folder and select “Share”. You’ll be taken to a webpage where you can enter the email addresses of who you want to share the folder with. When your friends add files to that shared folder, they will automatically get downloaded to your machine in addition to getting backed up online. If you have Growl installed on the Mac, it’s quite impressive to see your friends’ files magically show up.
