Are you in Upwork? Have you heard? They are giving away 20GB of FREE storage on Dropbox for 6 months! I’ve tried it myself. It doesn’t ask you to enter any card info. Just a few clicks and you’re done!
Here’s why you might need it
There is a lot of stuff nowadays that you get to download online – documents, spreadsheets, music, movies, etc. After downloading, there are a number of ways you can store it. You can keep it on your computer, transfer to an external device (USB or external hard drive) or upload it to an online storage like Google Drive and Dropbox.
Did you know? In a study conducted in the U.S in 2017, 61% of people between 18 to 29 years of age tend to use online storage services. These online platforms are available for free. However, additional capacity would require that you avail it at a price. There are also features that set these platforms apart.
What is it like? Dropbox lets you use a desktop app which allows you to sync the files you have on your computer to your Dropbox folder. It saves you time from manually downloading or uploading files. You get to access the files from either your computer or mobile device.
