    Dropbox for business can be a lifesaver

    Posted December 13, 2013 - 9:00 am

    Our team relies heavily on Dropbox for all of our projects. A major limitation to the free edition of Dropbox is that multiple users can’t synchronize the same files unless they all use the same credentials. Also it’s limited to 2GB of storage. That’s where Dropbox Pro and Dropbox for Business come in.

    Synchronize any Windows folder on your PC with Dropbox, thanks to Dropbox Folder Sync

    Posted April 1, 2013 - 5:53 pm

    Dropbox is a useful service that proves its worth time and time again. But to sync your data to other computers and mobile devices, you need to get that data into the default Dropbox folder in the first place, and sometimes that can prove problematic. Some data--such as browser profiles (Firefox), games points and profiles, Outlook data files, and password manager files (such as KeePass)-- can't be moved. For this, you will need Dropbox Folder Sync.

    SkyDrive looks to compete with Dropbox, Google Drive

Then Microsoft did something marvelous. The same week that Google released its long-expected Google Drive, Microsoft unveiled a thorough revamping of SkyDrive into an explicable and competitive service. (Microsoft lists the version that I reviewed as version 16.4.)

    Posted June 24, 2012 - 7:43 am
