Do you have a lot of files taking up space on your hard drive? If so you should consider looking at online file storage options, also called “cloud storage” or storing your files “in the cloud.” Many of these options have free accounts which offer more than enough space for the average person.
Dropbox is one of the most popular options for storing and sharing your files and documents online. Their free option is pretty good and also allows you to share files and folders with your friends and family. You can upgrade to the paid version if you need 1TB of space (1000 GB).
Dropbox can be shared across all of your computers and mobile devices. This provides you with access to all of your data, regardless of your location. Plus your account is always synched and updated.
Business owners love Dropbox, as do those who use it for their personal documents and photos. It is the perfect place to store an extra copy of those photos that mean so much to you.
With their business option, called Dropbox for Business, you can have multiple users who can be located anywhere and still work and collaborate on files at the same time – without overwriting each other’s changes. No more waiting for a fax or email to be sent, or having to update each other via conference call, or worse, having all your hard work overwritten by someone else who had the file open at the same time as you. All team members can check files in and out and stay up-to-date on any project by accessing company files from their own Dropbox.
Online storage choices are perfect for the small business owner who doesn’t want to eat into their hosting resources. Instead of having their customers and clients download files from the server, they can download them from inside Dropbox. They don’t even need their own account to do so.
If you are looking for more functionality from Dropbox then checkout all the third party applications that are available.
For example you can use SignEasy to sign your documents from your phone or tablet. Or add Dropbox files to your team projects inside the Asana project management tool.
There is definitely much more than meets the eye with these online storage tools. Why not free up space on your hard drive by saving them directly into your Dropbox account? This makes locating your files easily and eliminates the worry if something does happen to your computer.
Online storage tools are perfect for both personal and business uses. Backing up your important files and photos provides you with peace of mind and ensures that you can always find them again no matter what.
