Recover your files

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 180 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.

4 different file types syncing to the cloud

In cloud computing, cloud storage services work 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 at their data centers. Users can upload files to the servers and access their cloud data via website, desktop app, or mobile app.

Cloud storage benefits include easily storing, accessing, and protecting your data via the internet. You can streamline work and outdated storage systems by uploading nearly any file and accessing it from multiple devices.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. This is especially useful in times of disaster recovery and if your hard drive lets you down.

Reducing resources used to manage data is an additional benefit of online storage for businesses. Teams can choose the right cloud storage space and pricing that works for their needs, while also cutting energy and maintenance costs associated with data management.

Dropbox offers various cloud storage options. Whether you’re an individual, small business, or large company, using Dropbox for cloud storage lets you store everything safely in the cloud and access file uploads from multiple devices.
