Cool Tool for Musicians, Writers, Music Fans

23 Aug

I was reading about Google’s new Drive service and in the article they mentioned that unlike Google,  DropBox doesn’t “use” your files or information. So thanks to that I found Dropbox, it’s so practical and I’m really glad I found it.

Need to share some very large files with friends? Drop them in your “Public” folder on DropBox and send an invite to your friends. No more huge emails, CDs, or DVDs.

Make sure you don’t lose important files or photos.

There are so many possibilites, and of course if you have a laptop, PC, and a smart phone — no problem, you can access the same files from any of your devices — it’s great.

For me it is a great tool when I interview musicians and need to get music samples or photos.

Here’s their pitch – I give it a big thumbs up!

Your files, anywhere
Any file you save to Dropbox also instantly saves to your computers, phones, and the Dropbox website.

2GB of Dropbox for free, with subscriptions up to 100GB available.
Your files are always available from the secure Dropbox website.
Dropbox works with Windows, Mac, Linux, iPad, iPhone, Android and BlackBerry.
Works even when offline. You always have your files, whether or not you have a connection.
Dropbox transfers just the parts of a file that change (not the whole thing).
Manually set bandwidth limits — Dropbox won’t hog your connection.

Simple sharing
Shared folders allow people to work together on the same projects and documents.

Invite friends, family or teammates to a folder. It’ll be as if you saved the folder to their computers.
See other people’s changes instantly.
Create photo galleries viewable by anyone you choose.
Send a link to any file in your Dropbox using your Public folder.

Dropbox mobile
Apps for iPhone, iPad, Android, and BlackBerry keep your Dropbox at hand, even on the go.

Bring your files with you when you’re on the go.
Edit files in your Dropbox from your phone.
Easily upload your photos and videos to Dropbox.
Share freely with family and friends.

Your stuff is safe
Dropbox protects your files without you needing to think about it.

Dropbox keeps a one-month history of your work.
Any changes can be undone, and files can be undeleted.
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and AES-256 bit encryption.

    FTP is another alternative. But for those who find it difficult to setup and dont want to deal with the complexities, there is another solution called Binfer. Binfer is an innovative solution that uses private p2p technology to transfer files from any computer to any computer in the world. Do check it out when you get a chance: http://www.binfer.com

      Thanks, I’ll check it out. Amazon now as a cloud with free storage space for photos which I also like.

      DropBox is great for me because it gives me a lot of free space, syncs all my devices and computers automatically, and allows for team projects. Hand now to imagine being without it.
