How many of you out there use Dropbox?
(Hopefully many of you raised your hands.)
I do. It has been really awesome. For those who don’t know, it’s a site which “shares” all the files in a single folder among multiple computers. So I put all my teaching stuffs (worksheets, tests, smartboards, etc.) in that folder and I can access them anywhere. And it automatically updates — so any new documents I make at school will be on my home computer too. Any changes to tests I make will be made on my home computer too. Best of all, it’s free.
But the problem is: I’ve reached my (free) 2GB limit. I want to have all my teaching stuff on Dropbox, but probably like most of you, I have more than that.
One of my students who is taking computer science mentioned SugarSync to me… It’s like Dropbox… it’s also free, but better. (HOLLA!) You get a huge 5GB of free storage, plus it has somethings which I like better than Dropbox. But mainly, it has more space. Right now it seems like that site has already started to be a serious competitor for Dropbox. And I think they’re trying to get the word out. Right now, if you refer someone to SugarSync, you and the person you refer both get an additional 500MB of free storage space. Clever, right?
Obviously, I want to be all over that. So if you are thinking of trying it out, use my referral link! You and I each get an additional free 500MB of space!
You should DEFINITELY try it out.
PS. If you want to sign up for a Dropbox account, use this link and I get 250MB of free space. I don’t think you get any free space though. :(
