A Filing Cabinet in My Pocket

Having your important files everywhere is a huge convenience. I lost count of the number of times I needed my passport, a recent proof of address or my CV handy.

In all of these cases I was grateful for Dropbox. Dropbox is a cloud storage service owned by an American startup of the same name.

There are similar solutions offered by Microsoft and Google. I prefer to support the underdogs.

The free plan offers a generous 2GB of cloud storage. That’s more than enough to store all your important documents. Dropbox has apps for just about every platform, including Windows, MacOS, Android and iOS. This means you have access to your files on all these platforms. The app takes care of saving the files on the cloud for you. All you have to do is place them in the dedicated Dropbox folder.

Other than file storage, Dropbox also lets you share these files with others. It also offers recovery of deleted files for 30 days from deletion.

I opted for their plus plan, which offers a whopping 2TB of storage for £7.99 ($9.99) per month at the time of writing. This gives me the peace of mind of never running out of space when storing all my important documents.

Whenever I receive an important letter, I immediately scan it and keep the scanning in my Dropbox. Doing so saved me incredible amounts of time in the past.

Don’t get caught without your important documents. Use Dropbox.
