How to work with Dropbox

Dropbox is a fantastic programme that gives you 2GB free if you install it on your computer. If you invite others you can get masses more free space. It really is worth downloading and installing Dropbox on to your computer. Once installed it makes a folder in your Documents folder. Whatever you place in this new Dropbox folder is aautomatically backed up on the web and can be accessed from anywhere. So just to have an online backup for your important documents is wonderful.The other marvelous part of Dropbox is that once you have an account, you can install Dropbox on all the computers you use and it keeps them perfectly synced. No more flash drives needed!  I have compiled some ideas of how to use Dropbox in this Slideshare.

    Thank you for all your hard work and awesome info... every time.
    I'm a teacher, and also life long student (unisa!)
    A year ago I created a dropbox for the BEdHon students (we also have a support group on FaceBook). The problem is, the 'new' students when using dropbox keep on deleting files and it takes hours to restore...
    any tips on how to handle this 'delegate' situation, for it shows in admin who deleted the files, and when we ask (nicely) please don't, they (students) get pretty upset...
    So,we would like to keep our info 'safe' for all to use with out repairing files the whole time...

    Looking forward to hear from you.
