Quick Tip: Never Lose a Document

 —  January 8, 2014 — 2 Comments

dropbox_logoIf you have not heard about Dropbox it is an incredibly versatile online storage tool. It is like having a 2 GB thumb drive with you all the time and it is free.  If you do not have a DropBox account get one here.

I’ve recently started saving all of my working documents (sermon prep, message outlines, letters to staff or parents, etc) directly to my Dropbox folder and NOT to my computers hard drive. This helps me access that file on my phone, my laptop, or at the office. Plus, if my computer shuts down, battery dies, or the software crashes I don’t have to worry about whether my document is saved or not.

Intrigued? What to know more? Watch the video below and download Dropbox!

  1. I have been using Googledrive instead of Dropbox and it has 5gb storage. Are there some extra advantages to Dropbox or do you think its just a preference?

    • Good question. Mostly because I started with Dropbox, Google Drive started out a Google docs and was pretty limited. Best advantage for me is that a dropbox users start with 2GB but can refer their way to 25GB, Google drive starts and stays at only 5GB unless you pay. They are both great options…also, check out skydrive.live.com and http://www.box.com, at one time Box was offering 50GB for free for life.
