Store everything, safe in the cloud
No matter the file or folder you’re trying to back up—from photos and videos to large CAD files and PowerPoint presentations—you can store it safely on Dropbox.
Dropbox offers one central hub for online file storage. Whether you’re at work or on the road, your files are synced across your devices and accessible anytime, anywhere. Access your Dropbox account with desktop apps on Windows and Mac, our mobile app for iOS or Android devices, and on the web through your browser.
If your device is lost or stolen, rest easy knowing your data’s safe. Remote wipe lets you clear all the files and folders from your missing device’s Dropbox account. All of your files are secure in cloud storage and backed up multiple times.
Accidentally delete a file or save a new version of a file you’re not happy with? No problem. Dropbox stores copies of all deleted files and folders for 30 days—or as many as 120 days for Dropbox Business users—including previous versions of files, so you can easily recover them. We also provide confirmation warnings on the desktop when team members move or delete files. They’ll know what happens when they take action, and fewer files will be lost accidentally.
Need more storage space? Dropbox has a range of plans that will offer you the right amount of data storage—no matter how much you need.
How does cloud storage work?
Cloud storage works as a network of connected data servers collectively used to share and access your files across devices. Cloud storage providers own and maintain the offsite servers that make up this network. Users can upload files to the servers and access data in the cloud via website, desktop app, or mobile app.
What are the benefits of cloud storage?
Cloud storage benefits include easily storing, accessing, and protecting your data via the internet. You can streamline work by uploading nearly any file and accessing it from multiple devices. You can also rest easy knowing all your important data is backed up in a safe, offsite location—especially useful in times of disaster recovery.
Reducing resources used to manage data is an additional benefit of cloud storage for businesses. Teams can choose the right storage space and pricing that works for their needs, while also cutting energy and maintenance costs associated with data management.
