Dropbox is a cloud-based service that allows users to upload documents, photos and almost any other file. Once a file has been uploaded to a user's personal account, it can be viewed and accessed from any desktop or laptop computer or mobile device.
Dropbox allows people to use the service as a backup for their computers when it comes to important files. If the computer breaks down, the user maintains peace of mind in knowing their files are safe in the cloud. The service can also be used by people who want to collaborate on a project from a great distance. One person uploads a file, the other downloads and edits and then uploads it again. This process can be repeated until the project is done.
