What is Dropbox?

Dropbox is an online backup facility which stores your data on their servers using Cloud Storage (which we covered in the first series) so that you can share files with others using file synchronization. The concept of Dropbox is that you can simply access your files anywhere and they can be shared with others. All files you save in your Dropbox account will instantly reflect the same in your computer, Phone, iPad and device with Dropbox access.

    I’m wondering about the value of Dropbox as an archival site. The Dropbox FAQ doesn’t address this, but is their a statute of limitations as to how long documents can be retained on Dropbox? And if a new version of Dropbox is developed, will the documents placed in the earlier version still be accessible?

    There are several online backup facilities: Dropbox, Google Drive, One Drive and iCloud. I think the best deal for free storage capacity is Google Drive. They offer 15 GB of storage for free. Plus Google offers free office suite software.
