What is Dropbox?

Dropbox is a file hosting service that offers cloud storage, file synchronization and client software. The service allows users to create a special folder on each of their computers which Dropbox then synchronizes so it appears to be the same folder/contents regardless of the computer used to view it. Files placed within these folders are also accessible through website and mobile phone applications.

If you do not yet have a Dropbox account and would like to set one up, please go to https://www.dropbox.com.
