Founded in 2007 by two MIT graduates, Dropbox is powered by Dropbox, Inc. that uses a web-based cloud storage and offers this same storage to customers who may wish to save their files and folders on an online location, where they can easily use the files anywhere and anytime they so choose. The cloud storage of Dropbox uses a file synchronization process that detects which file is the most updated – the one on the cloud, or the one the user has accessed – and updates it as appropriate. This field is actually a steadily growing industry in recent years, gaining momentum with the introduction of the cloud-based storage services such as the Windows Live SkyDrive and Apple’s iCloud, which are all similar applications and uses the general idea of a storage anywhere, anytime, accessible through any modern device.
There are both free and paid versions of Dropbox, with free users having at least 2 GB of online storage, upgradable to 8 GB if they refer their friends or acquaintances to the paid version of Dropbox. Dropbox clients run on a variety of computer operating systems, such as Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux, plus those on mobile devices, like Android, iOS, and BlackBerry OS; you can also elect not to install a client and opt instead for a web-based interface.
File.org aims to be the go-to resource for file type- and related software information. We spend countless hours researching various file formats and software that can open, convert, create or otherwise work with those files.
If you have additional information about which types of files Dropbox can process, please do get in touch - we would love hearing from you.
