Get Started Using Dropbox in 5 Minutes or Less


Dropbox is one of the leaders in cloud storage and I use it every day for both business and personal files. Installing and using Dropbox is extremely easy – it’s really something you can just set and forget.

All you do is create a file structure within your Dropbox folder and then create/edit/save things as you normally would and everything within that main Dropbox folder automatically syncs to the cloud (and to any other computer you have Dropbox installed on as well).

I use Dropbox to sync all of my computers (2 desktops and 2 laptops) so that I have all of my client work available on all of them any time I need them. I can also access those same files from my phone, so if a client needs a file while I’m on the go or if I need to post an image to social media, I can just pop into my account and grab it. Sharing files is also very easy to do from any device as well.

The only potential downside of Dropbox is the price because in the last year or two, many competitors have offered far more free space than the 2 gigs Dropbox offers.

The ease of use is what keeps me coming back to Dropbox, but I also have a Google Drive account that I use as well due to it’s wide integration with 3rd party apps and extremely low price.

Bottom line:
Dropbox is a solid product that has worked flawlessly for me. If you need more free space than the 2 gigs, you’ll likely need to look elsewhere and the price for the paid plan ($9.99 a month for 1 TB at the time of writing) is still a deterrent for some.

    Thx for the brief overview of DropBox… Question: Do I have to have the settings allow for photos and videos to be saved on DropBox? I already have Google photos as my backup to free up space on my iPhone and Mac. Please advise. Thank you.

    What if I have 3,000 photos on my phone and have procrastinated in removing them to the cloud? How long might this take? Will my phone choke and die? Help a dinosaur, please.

    These instructions don't work on my Windows 10. Any time someone keeps telling you how "easy" something is…it isn't.

    Followed instructions to open my very old PC account and it worked. I now have access to 54 old photos. I have no idea where to go from here. There are no dropbox icons on my desktop or quick access etc. I'm stuck, so, Goodbye Dropbox I'll use another service.

    Or those 2 folders duplicated and removed or are they completely removed into the Dropbox folder and no longer have the path they had before?
