How To Properly Safekeep Your Data using DropBox

Dropbox is a cloud storage service that makes it easy to share files and collaborate with others. It is a cloud based file storage service that enables you to keep your data backed up and safe. This blog post will discuss how to properly use Dropbox in order to safely store your files and data.

When you first sign up for Dropbox, you receive a free account with two gigs of storage space. Dropbox comes in at $9.99 / month per year for individual account. For those who need more than that, Dropbox Business starts at $20 / user / month and offers unlimited file hosting.

Dropbox ensures all your files are encrypted before they ever leave your computer meaning only the person receiving them has access to view or edit it. This is great because no one wants their personal information leaked out into cyberspace where anyone could find it! Dropbox also enables users to selectively share folders so individuals can be given restricted permissions on what folders they have access to within the program such as sharing project documents with team members without exposing every document you worked on during

Dropbox is a pioneer in the cloud storage service industry. Dropbox is a cross platform application that can be used on Mac, Windows and Linux computers in addition to mobile devices such as iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Dropbox offers free accounts with up to 16 GB of space which are perfect for basic file sharing tasks. Dropbox also provides paid plans with larger storage capacities if you need more than 16 GB of data stored securely online.

The best thing Dropbox has going for it is the Dropbox desktop client. Dropbox enables you to save files directly from your computer’s hard drive onto Dropbox ‘s secure cloud servers . This simple feature allows Dropbox to act as a backup service by storing an extra copy of all of your data online. All versions of Windows (including XP, Vista, and Windows-based tablets) are supported in addition to Mac OS X Leopard or later operating systems. The Dropbox software also features basic file sharing abilities that makes sending large files painless.

The key thing about Dropbox is that even if you delete a file locally on your computer the same will happen on Dropbox – which essentially means there are now two copies of this data available: one local deleted copy, and one archived safekeeping copy on Dropbox servers.


Dropbox offers a simple way to keep your data backed up and safe. Dropbox is also free for basic users who only need 16 GB of space. Dropbox file sharing capabilities are top notch as well, making it easy to share large files with coworkers.


Dropbox has been known to delete user’s accounts without warning due to over-use , spamming other users, or illegal activity which can result in permanently deleted account contents including irreplaceable documents and photos if the cloud storage service was used as a backup solution . Dropbox isn’t necessarily better than using external hard drives because they can fail too – either from physical damage by dropping them onto the ground or from electronic failure caused by sudden power loss that corrupts saved data. Dropbox also has a much larger attack surface than an external hard drive which means Dropbox could potentially have more vulnerability that allow hackers to steal your data.

You should consider using Dropbox as part of your backup solution but you shouldn’t use it as the only line of defense against malware or other electronic threats such as power surges, fires, and floods. If you do choose Dropbox as part of your online backups make sure you encrypt all files before uploading them into the cloud – preferably with full disk encryption on any laptops or mobile devices that may contain sensitive information about yourself like your social security number, passport information, or passwords. Dropbox is an excellent cloud based file storage service that provides free accounts with up to 16 GB of space which are perfect for basic file sharing tasks. Dropbox also provides paid plans with larger storage capacities if you need more than 16 GB of data stored securely online. The Dropbox desktop client makes Dropbox a great backup solution by automatically storing an extra copy of all your files in the Dropbox ‘s servers – even after they have been deleted from your hard drive locally . If you’re concerned about Dropbox deleting your account due to overuse make sure any important files are encrypted before being uploaded into the cloud because this will prevent anyone else but yourself from accessing them no matter what happens to Dropbox.



Dropbox is a great service that provides peace of mind by keeping your data safe, backed up and accessible from anywhere with an Internet connection. Dropbox allows for easy file sharing between friends and colleagues in addition to providing basic versioning (or revision history) capabilities allowing you the ability to restore previous versions of files should something go wrong or if you accidentally overwrite them. With Dropbox, it’s never been easier to keep your data safe – signup today!
