Dropbox is one of the most popular Cloud services in the world. With its help, you can keep your important data in sync and access it from various types of devices, such as computers, smartphones, tablets, etc. This utility is a desktop client developed by the Dropbox company to help you easily manage your backed up data.

The program lives on your Menu Bar from where you can alter the sync settings according to your needs. You can also configure the tool to automatically upload videos and photos from the devices you connect to your Mac. Furthermore, it provides you with a quick solution for sharing screenshots.

Another important advantage is the fact that the tool integrates into Finder's contextual menu. Simply right-click a file you wish to back up to your Dropbox account, select the "Move to Dropbox" option, and that's it.

You can always pause and resume the sync, set up the program to automatically launch at system login, and disable the notifications if needed.

The downside is that, if you would like to get extra upload space, you would need to pay a specific amount of cash each month or year, depending on the pricing plan you choose. On the homepage of the developer you will find plenty of info regarding the pricing plans. Similar iCloud backup services provide you with cheaper rates, but not many of them are as reliable as Dropbox.

Everything works perfectly and you don't need much computer experience to work with Dropbox on your Mac. Hence, it's definitely worth using this program on your computer to easily and quickly manage your Dropbox data.
