If you are not using Dropbox or at least heard of it then you’re missing a lot. Aside from being an online service that allows you to sync your files to unlimited number of devices, Dropbox is also a free online storage service with one of the most robust and stable servers.
I don’t mean to sound too pitchy; Dropbox isn’t paying me to market their product anyway, I’m doing this for the sake of readers who are in dire need of a good file synchronization tool. So be it office documents, music files, videos, be it for personal, professional or collaboration use Dropbox is a good choice.
Dropbox automatically syncs your files as you edit them, so there’s no need to finish working on a file on a specific machine and then transfer it on your laptop then wait for it to download completely so you can start syncing it on your main workstation.
