Dropbox has revolutionised my productivity

I’ve recently discovered the world of Dropbox, probably the most useful App I’ve used in a while.

If you’re unaware of what it is, it’s essentially a tool that allows you to share documents across multiple devices seamlessly. For example, if you drag a word document into your dropbox account it will be stored in the cloud, meaning you can access it from your iPhone, laptop or computer elsewhere that’s connected to Dropbox. It’s saved my life a few times when my laptop at work has screwed up. I’ve actually presented to my team using my iPhone connected to Dropbox before!

One thing that concerns me a lot is security – I store a fair amount of files in Dropbox and I’ve heard recently they had an issue where you could access anybodies account without a password! Google “dropbox security” and you’ll find enough articles discussing a hacking incident.

I’ve looked into other document storage solutions before but most are designed for corporate use.

My dad’s company uses Iron Mountain which to be fair has the perfect name of a document storage and shredding company. Since he told me about them I’ve been seeing the Iron Mountain trucks all over london:

Any recommendations on other Dropbox style solutions?

    It’s funny, because my husband once won a “Travis Perkins” bag in a raffle. It was green with yellow words on it and I’d never heard of this company before but after that I kept seeing lorries with “Travis Perkins written on them.”
