Dropbox Part II

Well, I bit the bullet and installed the DropBox software over the weekend.  WOW, it works SO much better than Microsoft Groove & it’s cross-platform so I can access my files from the Desktop, Laptop, or Mac Mini (Windows, Linux & Mac are supported).  There’s also a web based dashboard so you can get to your data from ANY computer just by logging into your account! The service also has the ability to make data public so you can share files with friends and family members.

The tool just came out of beta & the company gives you 2GB of free storage.  I’ve read in a few discussion forms they will be offering tiered pricing for people wanting more storage. If you haven’t done so already, check out the video demo on the DropBox site.  If you use multiple computers and want to have access to data from all of them this is definitely the tool for you!
