Dropbox - 2 Gigs of free space for backups and sharing

Posted by ClifNotes, Sep 2008, permalink Web Service

 

Dropbox is a good free service for storing and sharing files. It's been in beta for a long time and was accessed by invitation only, but now it's open to the public.

 

They recommend that you install their free upload tool for easy access from your system tray. After you click the systray icon, it opens a window that you can drag and drop your files into for easy uploading.

 

I have not tried their upload tool. I'm getting to the point where I have way too many things running in the system tray already. Fortunately they do provide an online upload dialog that works just fine.

Below is a Dropbox web gadget

You won't see much in there until you have your own Dropbox account and log into it.

 

Here's a snapshot of it as it displays when you are logged in.
