How to Share Files Between Computers

Do you have more than one device or machine, and just want to share files between computers in a seamless way?

Great! Because this free program I’m about to share is the easiest way I know of to sync files between computers, iPads, and other mobile devices.

The best part is that you can share files across different platforms and operating systems. So if you have a Windows desktop, a Mac laptop, and an Android – you can still share files and keep everything in sync.

How to share files between computers

With Dropbox it’s easy to share files between computers

Go ahead and grab your free Dropbox account and start installing the simple Dropbox app on each of your computers or devices. Then it’s just a matter of putting the files you want to share in the Dropbox folder, and watching the sync magic take place.

It’s as easy as that!

How’s that for business ease?

Be sure to grab your free Getting Techy With It videos before you get ready to share files between computers.

    I love Dropbox. Not only do I use it to share files within the constructs of the non-profit I’m on the board of (yay paperless!), but my boyfriend and I are also planning on using it! There are some files you just want to send securely, ya know? ;-) It’s a highly effective tool – great article Nathalie!

    @aliascrazy Yay I totally agree, it’s a great way to share files in a very much paperless way. :)

    Can’t live without Dropbox.

    I know quite a few ad agencies, that use it for transporting files. Awesome to connect it with Growl.

    Thanks Nath!

    @MartaSpendowska Yay to another Dropbox fan! I also use Growl, so thanks for mentioning that for people who are new to it. :)

    Nath, you did this video just for me!! :) Installing right now – I was procrastinating! This video made it seem so easy. Thanks!

    @LizLongacre Yay way to take action Liz! :) It is really easy once it’s all set up, and even the setting up part is easy too. :)

    Thanks for sharing, Nath. Dropbox has got to be one of the most important services for all the work that I do. My favorite is using the public folder to share files that would otherwise be too much bandwidth for my web hosting.

    @ethanwaldman Yes, Dropbox rocks… it sure beats using USB sticks between devices or trying to attach things that don’t fit via email. ;)
