But as with many other creatures out there capable of forgetting, we sometimes miss to bring our USB stick. So we often resort to rush back to our home and fetch those files no matter how it would cost. And the trouble doesn't end all there. A simple misuse of flash drives often results to unexpected crash, and that means instant loss of files!
You can't allow this to happen, and I'm going to show you how you can avoid this to happen.
The simplest way to protect your data is to put them in the cloud! That way you'll be able to access your files/documents whenever, wherever you are in the world. The process is simple: synchronize your files stored from various sources, computers, devices and leave them in the cloud. There are many ways on how to complete this, and the one that I'm going to show you is thru the use of DropBox.
If you haven't had a chance to try DropBox, this is about your time now to give a shot and be amazed. DropBox is a feature-rich online file storage service, but not the type of free online hosting service you might think it is. DropBox seeks to simplify your work by allowing you to bring all your files/documents together in one place and have them accessible to specific group of people.
DropBox incredibly apart from others is that any file you save to your Dropbox will automatically save to all your computers, phones and even the Dropbox website. Dropbox also makes it easier to collaborate and share files with others, whether you're a student or professional. And the most amazing part about it is that DropBox can recover and restore back specific file should your classmate or working colleague accidentally modified or deleted the file!
