File Management/Syncing on HP Probook 4510s


Dropbox is a Web-based file hosting service operated by Dropbox, Inc. that uses cloud storage to enable users to store and share files and folders with others across the Internet using file synchronization. It's a best alternative
to laptop's limited onboard storage.

Dropbox also prevents the tedious task of transferring files from your primary computer to your laptop. Dropbox lets you upload up to 2GB of files to the cloud, and then access them from a Web portal or from a computer’s desktop. Download Dropbox to both your netbook and your regular notebook or desktop to create a folder you can access from either machine. Files dragged to the Dropbox are then accessible from any other computer by typing in your username and password.

It offers following cool features.
2GB of Dropbox for free, with subscriptions up to 100GB available.
Your files are always available from the secure Dropbox website.
Dropbox works with Windows, Mac, Linux, iPad, iPhone, Android and BlackBerry.
Works even when offline. You always have your files, whether or not you have a connection.
Dropbox transfers just the parts of a file that change (not the whole thing).
Invite friends, family or teammates to a folder. It'll be as if you saved the folder to their computers.
Create photo galleries viewable by anyone you choose.
Send a link to any file in your Dropbox using your Public folder.
Bring your files with you when you're on the go.
Edit files in your Dropbox from your phone.
Easily upload your photos and videos to Dropbox.
Any changes can be undone, and files can be undeleted.
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and AES-256 bit encryption.

wow, don't you think it's fun and is a wise thing to store files at Dropbox and access them at any time you want! I have got one too and i am really impressed by Dropbox's services.


SugarSync is a convenient way to back up, sync, and access files from anywhere, anytime. SugarSync is a service that actively syncs files across computers and other devices which is operated by SugarSync, Inc. SugarSync assumes that you have different synchronization needs on your different computers.

 Unlike Dropbox, SugarSync doesn't sync just one default folder among different computers. Instead, it lets you specify any of the folders on your various computers to be synced to the cloud.

Using this file management is very easy. Once you’ve specified a given folder on one machine, you can opt to link that folder to directories with the same name on any or all of the other computers you’ve linked to your account. Files on those various machines are all stored on the company’s central servers, where they're available through a Web interface. SugarSync enables its users to backup, access, sync and share all of your documents, photos, music and movies so that you can access them from your laptop, iPhone, iPad, Android, BlackBerry, or any other device. Files are backed up in real time and not just when the schedule calls for it, and file access and restoration can be made from just about any browser or web-enabled device. What's even better is that these features are backed by proven security technology and an intuitive, easy-to-use interface.
