How does Dropbox keep Backups of My Files?

Dropbox is a cloud storage service where you can backup photos, videos and files. If you are using the 'Dropbox Desktop Application', then your photos, videos and files are backed up several times. The first copy of your file is save on your computer's hard drive and then synced to your Dropbox account online, and that copy is backed up again for safety. If you are using Dropbox to sync files between multiple computers, then your files are backed up on those computers as well. If you delete your photos, videos or files from Dropbox, then by default it saves a history of all deleted files for 30 days. This facility is available for all Dropbox users. You can purchase the 'Extended Version History' add-on feature to recover the deleted files at any time within a year of an edit or deletion made after your purchase. Dropbox saves your all online files in encrypted format and in secure storage servers across several data centers.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!

PicBackMan was really easy to setup and has been running for 3 days now backing up all my locally saved photos to Flickr. My photos are really valuable to me so it's great to be able to have them easily backed up to a secure location.

It's AWESOME!! I have tens of thousands of pictures...and they are now successfully uploaded to SmugMug, where they are safely backed up, and I can edit and organize them. If you are hesitating about using PicBackMan, hesitate no longer...try it...and you'll be glad you did!!
