Need to Access Your Files on the Road? Try Dropbox

Dropbox logoDropbox allows you to access your files from the road, from any computer and mobile device such as an I-Phone, I-Pad, or blackberry.  No need to run back home or to the office to retrieve documents.  Dropbox is the ultimate “cloud application” for the road warrior.  Works with both Windows and MAC based computers.

Here’s why you should be using Dropbox:

  • Up to 2GB of free storage.  $9.99/mo for 50GB, $19.99/mo for 100GB.
  • Sync any size and type of file, documents, pictures, videos, audios, etc.
  • Saves any changes when working on files in Dropbox.
  • Share files with friends and business associates.

I have set up folders in my Dropbox account the same way they are organized in my computer.  I never have to worry about getting a copy of my passport, driver’s license, medical claim forms, etc.  Writing a book?  Simply upload it into Dropbox and work on it from any computer or smartphone.
