We've realised not everyone has discovered the power of sync yet. If you're still saving all your most critical documents and photos to a local hard drive that isn't automatically being backed up somewhere on the internet, a synchronised online storage service will change your life for the better.
Dropbox is one of the simplest and slickest cloud storage services available and really shows off the power of sync for all your devices.
Once you sign up you can install Dropbox on any of your computers and your smartphone. Whatever you put in your Dropbox folder will be available to all devices. You can also share folders with other Dropbox users, and there are many great apps across most smartphone and tablet platforms that include Dropbox integration. This lets you work on important files in all kinds of ways and have those files available wherever you need them.
Dropbox is free for up to 2GB of storage, so it isn't ideal for large files like photos, but for all your critical text documents a solution like Dropbox is just perfect.
That very first time when you stop working on a file in one location then — without doing anything but save — you pick up where you left off on a completely different computer? That's when the power of sync becomes perfectly clear.
