Dropbox! 2GB+ of free cloud backup / file sync / file sharing...

Posted By: fishmonkey, posted 2009/07/12 17:22
for those of you who haven't bumped into this service yet, Dropbox provides excellent cloud (online) storage/backup/sync/sharing accounts, with now over a million users...

once you install the client on your machine, you then have a folder which automatically syncs itself with the cloud... you can use the cloud to seamlessly sync files between computers, to do automatic online backups, or share files with other people by sending them links... you can also access your files directly through a web interface...

because the Dropbox client compresses data, and doesn't upload data that is already somewhere in the cloud, performance is much better than you would expect... also, your data is sent on a secure connection, and encrypted before being stored on their server backend...

i have been testing it for a while now and it seems pretty robust... they have free clients for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux...

2GB accounts are free, and there are paid 50GB and 100GB accounts too...

if you sign up using the link in this post, then both you and i will get an extra 250MB of storage for free... once you have your own account, you can then send people your own referral link and get up to an extra 3GB of storage for free...

    hey dropboxers, i've now reached my maximum of 3GB extra space on my free account for referrals, so if people PM me their referral links, i will edit the deal so that we can share the free space love...

    to get your referral link, open the web interface for your dropbox, and go to the referrals page, which is in the Accounts menu...

    also, i guess you could simply post a message in this thread with your referral link it...
