Dropbox: Easily Store and Backup Files

For the past three weeks we've been having lots of computer issues. I say we've since it's our computer, but technically Tim has done all the work of fixing the issues, "thanks, Honey!"

Multiple times the issue of creating a backup for our files came up, but without wanting to spend money and a lot of time on some program to save our files we Tim simply saved the hard drive from our old computer. Then when our new computer was up and running (correctly) Tim inserted the old hard drive as well.


Then today I read about Dropbox, an online backup service. Dropbox is different from a lot of other online storage programs because it is a folder right on your computer that allows you to save your files at any time

You can access your files immediately through your computer, the Dropbox website, or apps for iPhone, iPad, Andriod, or Blackberry. Dropbox also makes it easy to share files with other people.

This also means that if your computer is lost, broken, or stolen you can still access your files and pictures.

Dropbox gives you 2GB of storage for free. Plus if you sign up through one of these referral links, we'll both get 250 MB of extra storage for free. It's a great win-win situation!

Do you use online storage? Have you tried Dropbox yet?

We've been using dropbox for over a year and love it! One of my other favorite things is that I can store files like my recipe database on dropbox and then when I travel I have all my recipes available without having to make room to pack a big binder.
