5 Reasons Why Student Should Use Dropbox

  1. Never worry about doing back-ups of your files — Using Dropbox means freeing yourself from the hassle of doing regular file back-ups. Why? When you save your files in your Dropbox web disk, you files are stored in multiple servers (Yes, they are stored redundantly). Hence your files are really safe. In case of a hard disk failure, you can just sync your Dropbox account with your new computer (or your new hard disk). When you’re done syncing files, it is as if nothing unfortunate happened with your files.
  2. Access your files anytime and anywhere — If you use multiple computers, using Dropbox is a great way to organize your files and have them in all your computers and even mobile devices. Dropbox is compatible to a couple of operating systems including Mac, Windows, and Linux. You may also access your files using your Android, Windows Phone 7, iPhone, iPad or BlackBerry.
  3. It’s free — You may actually sign-up for a free Dropbox account. The free  Dropbox account gives you 2 gigabytes of disk space, which you may increase by referring your friends. If you need a larger disk space, you may purchase additional disk space for a low annual fee.
  4. Share your files easily — There are times when you need to send huge files to your friends and classmates, but email services usually put a limit on the file size you can attach to an email message. But with Dropbox, you don’t have to worry about file sizes and all when you wish to share files with your pals. You may share a whole folder o a single file with your friends with a click of a button.
  5. It stores multiple versions of your file — If you are working on a term paper or an assignment and accidentally deleted, replaced, or messed up the file, you may easily revert the file to an earlier version because Dropbox stores multiple versions of your file. All you have to do is log-in to your Dropbox account, select the specific file you wish to revert to an earlier version, then click previous versions.
