Dropbox 3.0.4 / 3.1.270 Experimental
Cloud based file synchronization app
Once Dropbox uploads your files onto its cloud storage servers, you can effortlessly generate and share public links to your files in order to allow friends and colleagues to access your data with ease and simplicity.
Cloud upload automation
All you need to do in order to use the Dropbox application is to copy your files within the Dropbox folder created on your Mac’s hard drive during the installation process, and they will be instantly synced to all your other devices running the app once the app detects any changes.
Moreover, Dropbox makes it very easy to work with your team and friends by helping you share project files, music, photos, videos or any other type of document via a simple drag and drop.
Built-in and automatic 256-bit AES encryption
Most importantly, if you are concerned about protecting your data and your privacy against prying eyes, Dropbox will encrypt your files using the 256-bit AES encryption algorithm before sending them over the web to the cloud storage server.
Team based file sharing and versioning
For business users, and for a monthly fee, Dropbox also provides unlimited version history for all synchronized files, which enables large teams to track any changes made within all documents of the currently running project in order to recover them or restore to a previous state at any given time.
As an extra advantage, Dropbox also allows you to link or unlink devices with a simple click of a button. Thus, if one of your linked devices is not available any more, or has been stolen, you can effortlessly unlink it from Dropbox, preventing unwanted access to your files.
Cross-platform and user-oriented data backup, share and synchronization app
Taking everything in consideration, Dropbox is a very useful multi-platform backup and sync utility, also designed to help you rapidly share your work or files with your friends and colleagues.
With the use of a user-friendly and lightweight app and the latest cloud technologies, Dropbox provides you with one of the easiest ways storing data in the cloud and sharing it with others with a simple flick of your mouse.
