"Dropbox": File Sharing made easy

Backups, Shared Folders, Dokumenten-Server, Versionierung, Hosted Medien, Photo-Alben und dergleichen werden durch einen neuen Service namens "Dropbox" erheblich vereinfacht. Files und Folders werden als virtuelle Volumes auf Windows und Mac gemounted.

Autor Drew Houston:

"We’re delighted to finally reveal what we’ve been up to — it’s been an exhilarating couple weeks since we announced our private beta. Dropbox received great writeups in TechCrunch, GigaOm and Venturebeat and to our surprise, our screencast hit the top of both digg and reddit, with the screencast receiving 11,000 diggs and ranking among the top 10 of technology articles in the past year.

The following response and flurry of blog posts, “invite bonanzas”, twitters and emails exceeded our wildest expectations.

And it’s been great to hear all of your feedback and to get reports from beta users using Dropbox for everything from planning weddings to directing multinational corporations.

For those of you still waiting, sit tight. We can’t wait to get Dropbox into your hands, and there’s a lot more to come!"
