This file-sharing service might flit around at the edge of your consciousness, but Dropbox is an essential install on desktop and mobile alike – Craig Grannell explains why


■ Get started

Sign up at and pick a strong password. We always use ‘Stuff!sDaBe5t’, but don’t tell anyone. Under Security in account settings, consider turning on and using two-step verification. You get 2GB of storage as standard; if you need more space, Plus (£79/yr) gets you 1TB.

■ Start uploading

Adding stuff varies by platform. Using the PC/Mac desktop app, just drag things into your Dropbox folder. In a browser, use the Upload files/Upload folder options. On mobile, share/send content to Dropbox using your OS’s standard method. Note: also on mobile, you can create a new named folder by tapping ‘+’ and selecting the relevant option.
