Sharing Files in Dropbox

Any of you who attended the last meeting might remember that we touched briefly on better ways to share files.  Email providers often limit the size of a file they allow you to send as an attachment. But sharing a file through a system such as Dropbox makes it easy.

Lisa Louise Cooke recently posted instructions on sharing files with Dropbox that you might want to take a look at.

Dropbox is a free, cloud-based file storage service.  Their free package gives you 2GB of storage - and there are ways to increase that for free by referring other people and signing up for things such as Gmail integration.  If you want 1TB for personal use, the cost is $8.25/month ($100/year). 

I have been using Dropbox since it launched and have been very happy with it. Please bear in mind that it is a cloud-based service, and is very secure, but not a place to store or share sensitive information.
