Dropbox

So I've been hearing about this 'Dropbox' thing for a little while. Last night, I took a look at what it actually is and I realized it's going to REALLY help me with university and life in general.

Dropbox lets you put a special folder on each of your computers that you can access anywhere you have internet. For example, I use a netbook for school and a desktop for home and video games. However, I do homework on both computers. I've been caught a couple of times at school when I forgot to bring my homework because I had done it on my desktop and had forgotten to copy it to a USB drive.



So this is going to save me A LOT of hassle, and possibly recover some lost marks. And guess what? If you sign up for Dropbox from my referral link, I get additional space. I already have about 3 gigs without referring anyone, so any additional space is just icing on the cake, especially since it's primarily for school work, but what the hell, right?

Sign up! It's sweet: here's my link!

Drop box is great to have. There are some security issues but not a big deal if all you use it for is homework and innocent pictures. I got up to 8g with my account finally, I dont think i will ever use that up.

I used it when I bought my netbook to transfer the bulk of stuff over, but it's useless to me while I'm in Russia. I only have an internet connection on the one machine ;(

I've heard of this a bunch but never actually knew what it was for, It definitely sounds perfect for us students. Thanks for the post, I think I'll have to get myself one of these.

I highly recommend using this, I used to use it for homework because I always forget the USB key at home or at the computer I print from :D

Dropbox sounds like a great way to backup and have easy access. Could it be a potential security problem though?

It would of been nice if I had this during college but I still wonder how good Dropbox's security is.
