To access the files on multiple computers or mobile devices is nightmare two years ago.
It is solved until Dropbox came.
I have a post recommend it in 2010.
Now I feel it is even better.
You get the 2GB free space when you sign up. And if you use the link to sign up, you get extra 500MB free space for life.
With Dropbox, you can easily synchronize folders, files between your desktop, laptop. You can also use your Android phone, iphone to upload pictures to your dropbox folder, and access files inside of your dropbox.
It is not enough.
Sharing is another important feature.
There are three different sharing.
- One is share a folder with other Dropbox user. So both you can access the folder and files inside.
- The other sharing is to share the individual file. You can get link from a file and pass the link to others by email, MSN. They can download the file through the link.
- The last one is put the files into Public folder, then copy the public link and send it to others.

I do a lot of search every day. From Google, Yahoo, Bing, to some vertical search engine. Each search engine has its own power.
Today, I would like to introduce one of the file search engine. You know, there are a lot of file storing, file sharing sites. Such as uploading.com, rapidshare.com, etc. You can do the search on every site mentioned above, but can not do one search including all the sites without the Search Engine I introduced here.
It is General-search, one file sharing search.
Say, I want to look up the ebook, “Webbots spiders and screen scrapers”.
I enter the file search engine web address into firefox. Put the book name into the search box, click search.

One desktop with Windows 2000 pro works fine, until one day. It can not receive email any more. Any time I click send/receive button on the Outlook Express, it gives me an error box, said 0x800C0133.
What’s wrong. I go to check the email folder. The physical file store all emails.
The inbox.dbx is over 2 GB.
