Dropbox is the online free service which allows you to synchronize the files between several computers and/or mobile phones like Android, Nokia, Blackberry or iPhone, using the internet. Dropbox offers initially 2GB of free stocking space but there are certain ways you can get even 8GB (at every invitation you send, you receive 250MB; maximum 8GB)
How does Dropbox work:
Before anything you’ll have to register and create a new account by clicking here: http://www.dropbox.com/
After you complete the form you have to download and install the application in the computer.
When they ask you to create an account, you choose the ‘I already have an account’, then you click next and then you complete the form using the data that you used to create your account.
The email address used for the registration
The password you’ve chosen at the registration
Name the computer you’ll install the application on (to differentiate it from the others, in case you’ll add some more)
Click on the Next to finish the installation process
When you finish the installation process in the host computer, a new folder named “Dropbox” will be created. Every time you’ll upload files in this folder, this ones will the automatically uploaded on the online hard disk.
How can you get 8GB of free space
