    Finally, basically you get to have your stuff, all the things that you want to save online, anywhere.
    Personally, I use DropBox for a number of things. For example, I have a number of Wordpress templates and I use those templates from different locations and sometimes, on different systems. They are all stored on DropBox. That way, I don't have to worry about losing them. I also keep my WordPress plugins no there. I have several small files and applications stored on DropBox. There are a number of other uses for it in addition to storing photos and documents.

    If you are a programmer, you can store your code there.
    If you are migrating from one system to another, you can store backup there. There is a file size limit on DropBox of 10 gigabytes on a mobile connection or web-based connections. However, if you are using a desktop computer, there is no file size limit. Whatever your system can handle loading up, DropBox can handle those things for you as long as you have a plan for it.

    Now it's going to sign us in.
    Now you can see a list of our files. I have my applications, my contents, my game files, my personal stuff, some things from some people who worked with me, screenshots, websites that I like, and of course my financial application - YNAB. You need a budget which we will have some demonstration videos on. You can change VisiHow for those sites. This is our first part here. These are our files.

    Next, you have your Favorites.
    These are your favorite files. This feature is particularly useful if you have several things that you are working on and you constantly shift the latest document or favorite. Perhaps you have a source document or a framework that indicates how future work or other files should be put together. For example, you may have a website master file or a wireframe from which your developers are working. Wireframe file is not going to change over a period of time. However, the things you are working on will change be newer so you want to mark that first "wireframe" for example, your wireframe, as a favorite. We also have some tutorials coming on how to use Azure. Just search VisiHow for that and you'll find them.

    Finally, we have Settings.
    You can tap on Settings. This will show you your email, how much space you've used and you can link a computer. When you link a computer, what DropBox does is it allows your computer to synchronize information automatically. You can upgrade your account to a paid account. You can turn ON Camera Upload. You can turn ON Passcode Lock. You can get help, Legal & Privacy (does not really matter), app version again is general.

    One of the things that you want to look for is the option to tell your friends about DropBox.
    Each time you tell a friend about DropBox and they sign up for DropBox, you get 500 megabytes of space - up to a maximum of 16 gigabytes of space. 16 gigabytes of file storage is quite a big free storage space. If you are pro user then obviously you want to upgrade otherwise, you won't need to do that.
