How to Share Large Files over the Internet: Dropbox Review

This article gives complete information on How to Share Large Files over the Internet; Dropbox Features; Dropbox Price.

Sharing a file over the Internet is really simple: just attach it to your email message. Sure, that's easy; but what if the file is really very large, much beyond the limited capacity of the email? For example, let's suppose you are working on a multiple page brochure for promoting the tourist spot of Malshej Ghat, Maharashtra and you need to send it to the client. Or you are working on your Ph.D. thesis and need to send a ton of pages to your Professor to check it out. In such cases, an email attachment is just not enough. Don't fret! One of the best ways to share large files over the Internet is via Dropbox.

Dropbox Review

Dropbox not only allows you to share files with others over the Internet, but also automatically backups your files online, keeps your files synchronized between computers, and allows you to synchronize your files with mobile devices. Best of all, as and when newer versions of Dropbox materialize, your current Dropbox version will automatically get updated. Wow!

Dropbox is a simple easy-to-use service which allows you to share large files over the Internet. All you need to do is to install the Dropbox facility on your computer and upload files of any size to the Internet. Sounds amazing? Yes, it is!

There is a catch though: Dropbox is not entirely free. In the case of a basic account, which provides you with 2GB Dropbox storage, you do not have to pay anything and you can use it for as long as you wish. However, for more storage you do need to pay. Nevertheless, the fees are really low and Dropbox is a real steal at the given prices!

Price of Dropbox

1. Basic: 2GB – Free
2. Pro 50: 50GB - $9.99 per month
3. Pro 100: 100GB - $19.99 per month
