    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

    Posted July 26, 2012 - 2:13 pm

    SkyDrive seemed destined to be another Microsoft also-ran product. Although introduced long before the current wave of cloud-based synchronization and storage services, SkyDrive had a number of frustrating limits, and comprised two separately named services (central and peer-to-peer file transfer) under one hood.

(Microsoft lists the version that I reviewed as version 16.4.)

    It's a fact of modern life that archiving data is essential to prevent a data disaster. Still, something like one-third of computers are never backed up, according to 2,257 respondents in a recent Backblaze poll carried out by Harris Interactive.
