If you want to be able to access your files from anywhere with internet access, then this is the program to get. It provides you with 2gb free of storage, which is plenty for just those word documents that you need to access at another location.Once you download it, Dropbox creates a folder that constantly syncs with your account, and if any files are put in the dropbox folder on your computer than it syncs with your account. You can access your account online online which means you can download the file. You can also download any file that's on a computer that doesn't have a dropbox folder. If you upload the file to your account, then it syncs with your dropbox folder on the original computer as well. This means when you go to your dropbox folder on the computer you downloaded dropbox on, then the file you uploaded is seen under the dropbox file. This is a great program, and you should download it.
