Dropbox: The Most Amazing Thing to Happen to a TpT Teacher!

Alright... let's see a show of hands for all of you that have about 10 flash drives scattered around your purse, desk, drawers, home, and school. We all know we do it! I have them everywhere and to tell you the truth I don't know what is on which.
 
Then Dropbox entered my life!

Dropbox is a free and easy way to save things on ANY device you may be on and then pick up where you left off on ANY other device. For example: I have my computer at school, a pc at home, and a mac at home. Once I downloaded Dropbox I save directly to my Dropbox file and it updates my saves onto all of my devices!!

 
Did I mention you can also download it on your phones and tablets?
 
You can also use it to send files to someone's email! I have done this multiple times while away from my computer and on my phone. It's great for when you need to send sub plans or something when you are away from your computer!

LOVE Dropbox! I don't have a panic attack when I realize I left my flash drives at school! (I live 30+ miles from school, so returning is NOT an option!) The best feature is that I can use it through my phone!

Great idea! I use Dropbox from time to time, but never thought of using it as my back-up for my school files.
