You can use Dropbox to organize and update your stuff
Dropbox has the tools to help you organize and seamlessly update all your stuff.
You can easily save and sync your files to Dropbox using all your devices.
Saving files on dropbox.com
One of the easiest ways to upload files to Dropbox is with the Dropbox website. Simply sign in to dropbox.com, and then drag-and-drop files from your computer. Or, if you prefer, you can select “Upload files” to choose a file. Note that there’s a 50 GB file size limit when uploading through the website. If you have a bigger file, use the Dropbox desktop app instead.
On a flight? Or maybe your internet is down? Don’t worry, any edits you make to a file will automatically sync to Dropbox the next time you're back online. You can also make files available or folders available for offline viewing on your mobile device. Dropbox lets you work anywhere, anytime, without missing a beat.
