Dropbox - Easy Cloud Storage is a cloud storage web 2.0 tool that offers 2GB of free storage.  They keep it simple and this is what you see when you go to the site.
Click to watch a simple video that will help you understand how Dropbox can help you protect your files.  I continue to work with teachers who still store all of their school documents, lessons, etc. on a school computer and/or a flash drive.  Have you had a computer crash or lost a flash drive?  Dropbox makes sure that never happens.

The first question I get asked when I suggest cloud storage to teachers is whether documents are secure when you save them to Dropbox.  Here is the answer to that question from Dropbox.
 I'm keeping it simple today and simply suggesting that you watch the video on the Dropbox and if you want to try it, download the tool and start saving your files.  I hope Dropbox is a tool that you consider adding to your technology tool box.
If you use it, please leave a comment on this post so other teachers can learn how it works for you.
