Chances are, you’ve heard of Dropbox, but maybe you haven’t been forced to use it at work or haven’t realized the value of using it in your personal life. We, however, have noticed our clients, partners and friends use Dropbox more and more frequently and find it to be a valuable service that we want everyone to be able to use.

Simply put, Dropbox is a file hosting service that allows you to save and access and share your documents, photos and videos from any device. This means that your files will be there for you, even if your computer is stolen or your phone is lost. It’s also a great way to share large files and collaborate on projects. The free basic plan provides 2 GB of space, with the option to upgrade for a monthly fee.

This brief step-by-step video will walk you through setting up a Dropbox account and utilizing some of the basic functions. If there’s an element of technology that you’d like us to demystify, no matter how basic or complex, let us know. We’d love to hear from you!
