O Dropbox é uma ferramenta que sincroniza ficheiros entre vários computadores, tenham eles, Linux, Windows, MAC, ou mesmo iPhone*.
O funcionamento é muito simples, e passa por existir um serviço a correr em memória que sincroniza uma pasta seleccionada durante a instalação com um servidor remoto. Assim, sempre que se dá uma alteração dentro dessa pasta, o serviço vai sincronizar com o servidor do Dropbox. E mais, podem ter o serviço do Dropbox instalado em vários computadores, e assim, terem a informação sempre sincronizada.
