I just updated my personal blog to share my experiences of Dropbox with you. I have used it for over a year now and it has changed the way I do things on my computers. It is an online backup, sync, and sharing tool. You download a Dropbox folder to your computer, and everything you put in it is backed up online. You can share folders or individual files with others via a url link, or by email. And, best of all for me, is the sync ability. I have downloaded Dropbox on my Mac at school and on my PC at home. Every time I change or add a new file to my Dropbox, it is instantly synced to my other computer. I hardly ever use a USB flash drive, or bring my school laptop home with me, as Dropbox does it all for me. You also have online access to all your files, and can retrieve files you have deleted. Dropbox gives you 2Gb of storage for free. Any more than that and you are into the payment plans.
