Dropbox

UKOLadmin

Any file you save to your Dropbox will automatically save to all your computers, phones and even the Dropbox website. So even in your laptop breaks, the files you’ve saved in Dropbox won’t be lost!  You can invite others to look at any folder in your Dropbox, or send people links to your Dropbox files so they can edit them.  

Case studies

  •  
    Graham Crerar, Chair of Barkston Ash Beekeepers Association talks about how Dropbox made life easier for the association when it came to sharing files.
  •  
    Nicola Wallace-Dean is the community learning lead for Starting Point in Stockport. In her words Dropbox ‘cuts out the faff’ - it means she and her team can now share stuff on the move, and that’s proving to be a good thing for the people of Stockport.

Benefits

1. Files saved on one computer can be accessed from any computer or even your phone

2. Access your photo’s, documents and videos anywhere (even if you lose your computer).

3. Share files easily with colleagues and partners

Considerations

1. If you want more than 2GB free you’ll need to refer new users to the site (up to 18 GB) 2. If you don't use your free account for a while Dropbox might delete it. 3. If you need more space 100 GB is $9.99 a month

amygadd This is a really useful tool and does away with a flash drive for copying documents on to different devices. Brilliant!
