Dropbox is a free site which allows you to store up to 1GB of information. If you sign up for a paid account, you receive even more storage. The advantages this service provides are two-fold:
- You can upload documents to Dropbox and then access them from any computer which has Internet access. You would simply log into your Dropbox account and open your files.
- You can share a file inside Dropbox with someone else. When you need to collaborate with someone on a project, simply upload the documents to Dropbox. After sharing the files, you and your colleague can both access and change the documents.
Dropbox simply requires you to establish an account. I was up and going with this nifty tool in just a few minutes. If you have to access files remotely on a regular basis or collaborate with others on documents, this one could be a huge timesaver.
