Share with Dropbox

Do you ever have the need to share files with others but can’t email them as they are simply too large? Then why not take a look at Dropbox.

Dropbox offers an online data backup service through which you can share folders of documents or photos with friends and contacts.  You can even use Dropbox to synchronise your files across several computers. It supports both Mac and Windows users and also has an iPhone app so you can access your shared files whilst on the move. The service has packages suitable for both home and business users and you can try it out with a free version which gives you up to 2GB of free online storage.

Its simple to use. Download the software. Create a shared folder, upload those large files you want to share and your nominated friends or contacts will be invited via an automated email. These invitations tell the recipients that you’ve shared a folder with them and gives them a link to accept your invite. Once accepted, the shared folder will appear in their Dropbox account ready for viewing.

Easy! So what are you waiting for? Go on, try it out today.
