Some of the most eminent features of DropBox include automatic data backup scheduling and controlled bandwidth usage. Yes, you heard that right - DropBox allows you to schedule your data backup and it can also put a cap on the total amount of bandwidth that you want To use. The file manager of DropBox is very much user-friendly and you can easily access all your data from any device with an Internet connection and also can’t figure e-mail notifications. The best part about the service as it is compatible with both Mac and Windows machines. Say for instance you have a document that still needs some work but he certainly have to rush off leaving it unfinished, you can easily store it in a folder of your choice in DropBox and easily access the same document from your office or college computing platforms irrespective of whether or not they are Mac or Windows. You know what? You’re data is not going to get compromised irrespective of the access points. All of your files would be kept on the virtual servers for at least 30 days before they are completely removed, but if you want them to stay any longer, you can opt in for paid add-ons.

The backup space offered by DropBox is almost always more than enough for moderate to heavy usage and the platform also scores a 10 on 10 as far as security is concerned - not to mention the friendly user interface, but the help and support system that DropBox has isn’t really as solid as the service it provides and if the company considers offering a chat and telephone customer support, this could definitely find for the best online backup storage system position.
