« on: May 09, 2013, 09:45:16 AM »
G'day all,

Anybody heard of Dropbox how good is it, and how safe is it for a 2gb free account setup. https://www.dropbox.com/

Thank you.

As long as the security and privacy is safe, and had to read the term of the agreement and their security and privacy policy very carefully before I register a free version for 2GB.

Very interesting Bob I'll have a good look at this ;) according to my web research and investigation that Dropbox is the most popular pick from users and business companies ;)

I have all my screenshots and programmes/files in a dropbox folder.  It makes updating my standard speeches so much easier

I had a feeling you've been using Dropbox essexboy ;) ;D I've registered a free version and 2GB is a enough for me ;)

2GB is more than enough for me too as I don't use it as a backup, but in a similar way to essexboy. But like some other on-line options they are more geared up to just that on-line storage, not syncing across multiple devices.

Does DropBox serve the same purpose as Google Drive, Sky Drive, and Box?
