I guess you can call this part three of my post on how I run my business from a web browser (read part two here). Being able to access my blog, docs, photos and emails from any computer is cool, but how about files stored on my home computer? How do I access those files from another computer or a web browser? The answer is Dropbox.

Dropbox is my favorite online storage service. Dropbox allows me to access my home computer files from any computer, anywhere in the world. Dropbox acts just like a network drive in the cloud. Drag a file from your computer to Dropbox and it’ll transfer to the Dropbox online storage service. Any updates to the file will auto update the file on Dropbox. You can access your Dropbox from any computer where you have Dropbox installed. If you’re on a public computer, you can log into your Dropbox account from a web browser. There is also a Dropbox iPhone app so you can access your files from an iPhone or iPod Touch.

Dropbox offers 2GB of secured online storage for free. If you need more space than that, they have a Pro50 account with 50GB of storage for $9.99 per month and a Pro100 with 100GB of storage for $19.99 per month. The video below explains Dropbox in plain english.

If you share a folder with someone, you can decide what permissions they have to your folder. Members of a shared folder can have one of three roles—editor, viewer, or owner.

  • Editor: Any member you give this permission to can add, edit, or delete files in that folder.
  • Viewer: Any member you give this permission to can view and comment on files in a shared folder, but not add, edit, or delete files.
  • Owner: Only one member can be the owner of a folder. The creator of a shared folder is automatically the owner, unless they change the owner to someone else.
