First, in context you might find this useful. The link below will give you (and me) an extra 500 MB on a free 2GB Dropbox account. http://db.tt/WJJWkX1m Second, does anyone here actually use this kind of software? It seems pretty useful (as a college student, it's more reliable than remembering a flashdrive) but the 2GB which come free seem a bit small to be practical as a real back-up service and more as a filesharing one. Anyway, I'm looking for something to back-up the important information on my old laptop before it croaks (starting with Dropbox) and was wondering if you had any other suggestions.
