Default Discovered an AWESOME file sync/share/backup application...

OK as many of you know I am in the IT field. I use data transfer and portable drives all the time to sync files from my work PC to my personal PC. Well today I found my new favorite tool. Dropbox. Some of you are already using it, but today I got the iPhone app and now I love it.

Here is what it does:

1st its free (at least for the 2gig account, you can pay to get more space)
2nd you create your account and install the app on the PC's you want to get in sync
3rd you save files to the Dropbox folder on your pc. The app then syncs it to the website and to the other pc's you have linked to the account.

If you want to share a file you can right click it and it will create a unique link to the file that you can share. I am using that to let family download full size pics of the family from their house. No need to email smaller pics.

If you have an iPhone you can use the free app and upload your phone pics to backup and share.

The other thing that made me love the app is the restore to a previous version option. They save up to 30 days worth of changes so if you realize you should not have modified a document you can get an old copy restored. If you want forever restores there is a pay option for that too.

All of the data is encrypted to the same level as required by the military.

Here is my personal invite link. When you refer people to the service both the referrer and referee get an extra 250mb of space up to 3gigs.

super cool stuff. Let me know if you want more info, but for now I have my new favorite way to share and sync my files.

Nope just an iPhone app for now. But the desktop clients are still needed and work great.

There is a portable version and it allows the same type of instant sync as with the desktop version.

Man I love this thing!

*downloads for Android* although ill probably never need it.

i love using this to transfer files from my laptop to a school computer to print out. saves the trouble of having to find a usb stick to transfer between computers (school computers are notoriously slow)

Sounds like a snazzy deal. Wish I had a phone I could do that with. Make a great truck & parts file storage for when hunting.
