Drop Box - THANK YOU! - A quick story
Jul 18, 2011
Have you heard of Drop Box? If not....check it out. It just saved my @ss!
Drop Box is a 'cloud' style file storage system that allows you to put files in a folder to share with other computers (yours or other people). We use it to share files and folders between employees and partners.
We are collaborating on a course at the moment where several people have access to the file. Last night, one guy deleted ALL 300 files in the folder, then canceled his access to the folder. At the moment, we are trying to figure out if this was on purpose or an accident.
Either way, Drop Box saved me...they archive old versions and deleted files. All I did was go in and restore the files. If he did it on purpose, he has no idea that the only thing he did was waste 10 minutes of my time, give me a small heart attack and piss me off. If it was an accident all he did was waste 10 minutes of my time and give me a small heart attack.
Anyway....check out their stuff. You get something like 2 GB of space for free, but you can gain more free space by adding people. Of course you can always pay for more space as well.
Thanks Drop Box!
