Safety Week: Dropbox

Another step to securing your digital life is having a good back-up system in place. One great option for active files and things you might need to share or access from multiple work stations is Dropbox. It is an online storage service that provides a great desktop applet that integrates seamlessly with Macs ad mobile devices (It also provides software that runs on Windows and Linux as well but I’ve not used it so I can’t speak to how effective it is).

I use the service to store various text documents, logos and image files I use regularly and as back-up of current projects that I’m still working on. Once a project is completed, its moved to other storage.

The free basic account provides 2GB of space and you can earn additional free space when friends sign up. Their service can also be upgraded to hold 50GB, 100GB and 1TB+ through a monthly service fee starting at $9.99/mo.
