5 Ways That Dropbox Makes Your Life Easier

by Alicia Jay

We’re all busy. We have a million things going on in our work and personal lives. Whenever I find something that saves me time and helps me keep my sanity I feel that’s it’s my duty to share it with others! Someone shared a great tool with me that’s really helped to simplify things in my transcription business.

It’s called Dropbox. It’s an in-the-cloud service that allows you to store and share files and photos. I’ve found it to be really helpful with work and personal files. Dropbox starts you off with 2GB of free space. Invite friends to join and receive another 250MB for new signups!

Dropbox- cool tool for file sharing

Here’s why it’s so cool:

1. Dropbox makes sharing files with clients easy and safe. Your clients can only see what you put in the folders that you share with them.

2. You can access your files in Dropbox anywhere on any computer. It is Mac and PC friendly. There’s even a mobile app!

3. You won’t have to e-mail yourself files just to have them stored on more than one computer. Just put the file in a Dropbox folder.

4. If your computer dies (that would be sad) you can still access your Dropbox files from another computer or go to the Dropbox website.

5. Did you know you could use Dropbox as a backup system? You can sync it to back up certain files on your computer–even your WordPress site!

There you have it. Sounds pretty awesome, doesn’t it? What are you waiting for? Join me and click here to sign up for Dropbox today!

Well, I did download the app on my iPhone but haven’t used it for anything yet. Maybe I better get with the program, huh?

Good info; thanks for sharing and the reminder.

I hope your weekend has gone well.

Yes, DB is an essential tool for me. It also makes starting up a new computer easier—when my old laptop died suddenly enough that I had no chance to recover files, I was really grateful that they were actually all on Dropbox already.

I just loaded the Dropbox software to the new machine and let it run, and all my files were back. Yay!
