How to store your information safely

Like most IT recruiters, you probably have information saved on a number of computers.  You may even have an external hard drive and/or multiple thumb drives lying around the office or at home.  With so many different options to save your data, the task to retrieve it or store it all in one place becomes daunting…that is until now.   With the recent advent of online storage space, people are able to securely keep all of their files and data in one location.

Some technical recruiters Boston that I spoke with are currently using Dropbox.  They’re allotted 2 GB of free space and can get up to 10 GB from referring users to the website.  Dropbox allows them to save their files onto their server and access them as long as you have internet.  The IT recruiters MA just have to log on to the website and access their account through their portal.

Dropbox also allows our IT staffing salespeople to save their folders onto various computers.  These folders are saved on the desktop and update whenever a new file is added automatically as long as the end user is connected to the internet.  All they have to do is drag a file into the Dropbox folder that is saved onto their desktop.  This eliminates the need for a thumb drive.

Now in order to reach 10 GB of memory for free on your Dropbox account, you will need to invite your friends to join Dropbox and then they will have to install the folder onto their computers.  For each person that joins from your referral, you will receive 250 MB.  So if you are looking for an alternative to external hard drives and thumb drives, why not give Dropbox a try.
