Dropbox: Say Goodbye to Jump Drives

If you are like me, you have problems keeping up with your jump drive. My biggest fear was always, "What if I lose it forever?" My life stayed on my jump drive until I discovered Dropbox. I have used Dropbox for over two years. Since then, I have never used a jump drive again. 

Dropbox is an online storage program. Everything is stored online, so you will never lose anything! I store class files, personal pictures and videos, important documents, etc. into my Dropbox. Dropbox holds all file types. You can access Dropbox from multiple computers and your iPad. You can even share folders with friends and colleagues. Your students can upload files into a shared Dropbox folder. There is a paid version of Dropbox, but I have never upgraded. You start with 2GB of free space, and there are multiple ways to upgrade that space.To get started with Dropbox, simply {click here}

I also have had that fear. I used to fear the computer crashing, then I feared losing my external hard drive, and now I fear that I have files in too many places that I can't remember all of them..hehehe I have heard of drop box, but have never tried it. Thanks for the link and I think I will have to check it out (-;

Thank you for the resource!!!

That's like Google Docs almost, but probably better. Will definitely have to check it out! I'm obessed with putting things onto Google Docs!!

Do you know what the differences are between dropbox and google docs? I want to use the one that is more user friendly AND has more bells/whistles. :)
