Dropbox: Store, Sync and Share

I have been using Dropbox for last couple of months to take the
back of my data.

One thing I will say about this nice tool is that it’s easy, fast and cool.

If you think you don’t have a subversion or fsync utilities to take a back
up of your personal data then Dropbox is the amazing solution to this.

It provides free back up of 2GB data. And you can upgrade to store more.


1. Create an account in Dropbox.

2. Install the Dropbox desktop application.

3. The above will ask you to specify a folder name. Hence, create an
empty folder and give the path of that.

4. That’s it. 🙂 Now you can store anything in that folder and it will be
synced with the server.

Note: If tomorrow your system will crash and you will loose all
your important data. Then you can get the data from the server.
