How To Install And Configure Dropbox

[blip.tv ?posts_id=3967103&dest=-1]

In this Ubuntu Video Tutorial I will be covering the process of installing Dropbox and Configuring a new account from the start-up wizard. Dropbox is a cloud storage service that can back-up and sync your files. Its claim to fame is its simplicity. It has a fairly simple install process and a very simple client or rather lack of an apparent client. Instead you have a folder that will constantly sync… This “Dropbox folder should have all the files you want to sync. Another great thing is that it has cross-platform support. Thus you can sync between your PC, Mac, or Linux box. Ubuntu offers decent user interface integration but better integration is on the way with Ubuntu 10.10. Along with those features Dropbox offers competitive pricing on storage and gives you 2GBs free at sign-up. After that you can gain space by referring friends. You can reach up to 10GBs of total storage space from referrals on a free account. Mobile Access is available though m.dropbox.com or through Iphone, Android and Blackberry are on there way.

Alternatively you can follow this referral to receive a 256MB bonus. Dropbox is a open-source cloud storage solution.
