Tutorial Description


Yes, that's the word I'd use to describe this brand new service which allows you to store, sync and share your files and photos.

The new service is called ""Dropbox"" and is fully cross platform with clients for the Mac, Windows and Linux. Add in a fully featured web interface plus an iPhone optimised web site, and your files and data can be seamlessly synced across all your computers and accessible from any machine with an internet connection.

In some respects, Dropbox looks to be the service we were all hoping iDisk was going to be when re-launched as part of MobileMe. The free version of Dropbox gives you a whopping 2GB of free storage space, but don't make the mistake of treating this as just another online storage system. Dropbox has all sorts of extra features allowing you to share your files and photos easily via publicly addressable URLs, full file versioning and easy recovery, recovery of deleted files, special online photo galleries and much more.

This weeks ScreenCastsOnline Extra! members show demonstrates all these features and more.

The full show covers:

  • Intro & Setup
  • Using Dropbox
  • Using the Dropbox folder
  • Sharing Files From Your Public Folder
  • Dropbox Web Interface
  • File Versioning and Restoring
  • Syncronising & Sharing
  • Syncronising Between Macs
  • Sharing Dropbox Folders
  • Recovering Deleted Files
  • Using Photos and Dropbox

In addition, I also demonstrate how 1Password users can migrate from MobileMe syncing of their 1Password data to use the brand new Agile Keychain facility within 1Password, and use Dropbox to synchronise instead. This allows for a more feature rich, efficient and more robust syncing solution than using MobileMe.
