Problem #1: Keeping your data safe, secure and backed up on your home computer can be a tricky business. Backing up on external hard drives stored in an undisclosed location miles away from your computer (perhaps in the event of an accidental/intentional house fire) is one solution. However, if you are constantly updating files then it's a horribly dull and time consuming process to keep backed up files up-to-date. Not to mention that keeping an historical log of your important files (in case you inadvertently make catastrophic changes to them and desperately need to return to a previous version) requires multiple copies with different names which honestly is just an ...

The vast majority of people these days have access to both a computer and the internet. Having the one is fine. But what if you go on holiday, or if you visit a friend's house. Perhaps even get yourself a notebook or netbook to use in the coffee shop. How do you get that essay you were working on, onto another machine efficiently? In the most likely of cases, people will stick them on their pen drive or even email it to themselves. What if you forgot to transfer it, or forgot the stick itself? You'd be in a bit of a mess. This is where the application that I now use frequently comes into play. Dropbox is a magical box of wonders. Whatever goes in can come out ... Read the complete review

Anyone who hasn't got the message about the backing up of important computer files can't have been being paying attention. Either that or they're yet to suffer a catastrophic loss, either of items they've invested a lot of their time or money in. Give it time, it'll happen. There are many ways of backing up these files, and many people prefer to have some kind of stand-by drive or USB stick. These however do generally depend on your remembering to use them although some good back-up software often comes with bits of kit like this. An alternative is to use an on-line means, fast becoming known as a 'cloud solution' as your backed-up files are kept ... Read the complete review

Dropbox is something I first discovered listed on Apple's appstore but passed over it and never gave it a second thought. I was then browsing Dooyoo when I found a review of it; I enjoyed the review, rated it and then moved on, again not thinking much of it. Only recently after temporarily misplacing my usb pen drive (lemme know if you find it!) did I give it a second (or third) look. Essentially, you register with dropbox and download a dropbox to your computer; fancy name aside this is just like any other folder except it and its contents are accessible from pretty much anything with an internet connection and the software needed to use those files.

--- What Is It? --- Dropbox is available from www.getdropbox.com and is a simple way to share documents between friends/families/computers. It works by creating a folder on your computer which you simply drag files in to for them to be uploaded to your account. Any connected Dropbox computer will then download the file/s you have just added. This simple drag and drop approach makes it incredibly easy to use. --- Why Do I Need It? --- MSN is slow transferring files, e-mail has size limits and sites like yousendit are also often slow/have limits. Dropbox gives you 2gb of space FREE. So you can share files, anything else? well ... Read the complete review
