Most of the time i want to share files with friend, family, other people who are not into tech, and Dropbox is the most easy way to share files with everybody !
You just install the program, select your local dropbox folder on your pc & your good to go, your friend does te same and then whenevery one of you puts something in that folder it will automatically show up on your friends pc. If your friend deletes the file it also gets deleted at your pc.
This really is the most easy way to share a synced folder with anybody !

Users may also upload files manually through a web browser.

While Dropbox functions as a storage service, its focus is on synchronization and sharing. It supports revision history, so files deleted from the Dropbox folder may be recovered from any of the synced computers. Dropbox's version control also helps users know the history of a file they may be currently working on, enabling more than one person to edit and re-post files without complications of losing its previous form.

The version history is paired with the use of delta encoding technology. To conserve bandwidth and time, if a file in a user's Dropbox folder is changed, Dropbox only uploads the pieces of the file that ...
