Free File Syncing Across Your Devices

A pretty common question that I get asked is how to sync your files to the web and other devices. I have one solution that I pretty much give to everyone, DropBox.

This service is tech as hell so you don’t have to be. In short, it works like this: DropBox creates folders on your computer that all behave like the normal folders you are used to, when you put files or other folders into these folders all of that stuff gets synced to the web. Install it, move some files or folders into DropBox, win. It is so super simple even computer idiots like my friends or mother can do it. Beyond the app’s extreme simplicity in terms of use, it is also a great solution because it works across pretty much every device. So, whether you are on a Mac, Windows, Linux, Android, iOS, or whatever, it still works! You can also access all of your files online from anyone’s computer, anywhere. Seriously, I don’t even use flash drives any more.

Some other great features from DropBox:
-2GB free
-File Versions (they keep backup files of your files, so if you accidentally erase or save over something, you can restore it)

Have you used DropBox before? Let us know what you liked most about it or some cool ways you have found to use it in the comments section below.
