Postbib Yeshuist Posted May 5, 2010 Share Posted May 5, 2010 (edited) For those who don't know about it, Dropbox is a "cloud" storage setup that can be a lifesaver for those doing research. It's a free (or paid, depending on your storage needs) service that provides you with 2Gb of online storage that works exactly like a USB drive (except no plugging in). You can download a program for your local computer(s) that will stay in contact with the server and keep everything synced. The program can be installed on multiple computers so that a file saved on one is automatically uploaded to the server and then downloaded to a second computer when you fire it up. Some benefits: All files stored locally as well as online, so if you're away from the internet, you still have the files locally. 30-day version tracking (pull up that version of your dissertation you wish you had from from two weeks ago). Keep important files backed up. NO NEED TO EVER CARRY A USB DRIVE AGAIN!!! So anyway, this thread will be for people to get referrals which increase their storage. Post your referral link here and we'll let karma do the rest. (If you hit the max storage from referrals, please remove your link so others can share the love). Mine: https://www.dropbox.com/referrals/NTE0MjE2MzM5 PS for the referrals process to work, you will need to provide an e-mail address that the other person can see, so be aware. If you don't want to do this, but want DropBox anyway, just go to www.dropbox.com Edited May 5, 2010 by Postbib Yeshuist praj 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
