As writers, it’s important to backup our files regularly so that we don’t lose any of our work. That’s true for anyone who uses documents. I use Dropbox to quickly and easily backup my writing–for free, and so can you. You get 2GB free. Once you’ve set up your account and specified the folder you want backed up, you don’t have to do anything–it automatically backs up and syncs your files every time a file changes. You can access your files securely online, even from your smartphone, as well as your computer, knowing that you never have to remember to back up your work again or worry that you didn’t back it up.
I lost an entire manuscript that I had to rewrite from scratch before I discovered DropBox, due to a hard drive failure. I’m grateful I found DropBox. I hope you’ll find it as easy to use as I do.
