This mobile cloud service is not only free, but a necessary security mechanism for your hard work. Life throws crazy punches at our computers and when it does, if you don’t have your work stored on a mobile cloud like dropbox, you could lose all of your hard work. Did I mention it is free for your first 5 GB. This is usually sufficient for authors, but for me, I store my websites, their backups, my photos….basically my entire business.
