The How To..
Here's What's Said In The Video..
So now that Dropbox is installed we can begin to use it.
So Dropbox will require you to create an account, so you can just hit sign up.
And enter your details there.
And then you just need to enter your email address and password you've made.
And then just go through the prompts.
Open your Dropbox, get started, next, next, finish.
And then down the bottom right here we have the Dropbox icon.
The little blue icon shows that the Dropbox is updating.
So here we can see some blue loading signs and then some are green ticks.
And when the green tick is there it shows that the file has been completely downloaded.
If you add a file to your Dropbox, that file will then be uploaded to your Dropbox account online so anything that you place inside your Dropbox account is duplicated to an online storage location.
That means that anything in your Dropbox is immediately backed up to an online location so you can actually go to your browser and you can enter dropbox.com.
And if you sign in on Dropbox.com no matter what computer you're on you will actually be able to access your data that you've popped into your Dropbox folder on the computer you have Dropbox installed on.
So now that I've gone to dropbox.com I can actually see all of my saved files.
So that's probably the best way to create a backup and also have that backup accessible from any location.
