Using Dropbox on your computer is just like using any other folder on users hard drive, except the files you drag into your Dropbox folder automatically sync online and to any other computers or mobile devices linked to your account.

The application runs in the background and automatically keeps your files in sync and backed up online. It's like having the same folder on all of your computers and mobile devices at the same time.

Some of the main benefits are:

  • Edit Dropbox files even if you're offline; your changes automatically sync once your device regains an internet connection.
  • When you edit a shared file, everyone gets the update automatically.
  • Automatically back-up photos from the camera roll on your phone or computer. They´ll be saved in date order for you to create albums with and share. 30 days of undo history enables you to restore accidentally deleted files.
  • Share files and photos - even with someone without a Dropbox account.
  • Save any kind of file in Dropbox and sync them across all devices (PC, Mac, Android, iPad, iPhone or Windows Phone).
