Yesterday I was chatting with Deepak Jain our Senior Editor at rtBlogs and he brought to my notice a excellent tool for syncing your files across different computers. It is quite a handy tool for people who might be working on different computers or have two computers at home and need certain files to be in sync. I find this software quite helpful as I work from different computers at different locations.
- You need to first register to Dropbox and install it on your computer from the website. The free version allows you to sync a folder upto 2 GB.
- Once you install Get Dropbox on your computer, you can even choose where you want to put the folder on your computer you want to sync with other computers you use.
- Once done, you update saved files on one computer and all the folders are updated and saved automatically.
- If one of the computers is damaged and you cant receive the files, that is fine as you can still retirive the folder from the Get Dropbox website.
The best part of this software seems that all the computers synced through Dropbox do not need the same Operation System. It works across Mac, Windows and even Linux. Also by visiting the website on a mobile device you could access the folder contents with a mobile.
