Dropbox - Leave your USB at home

Have you ever saved your work onto your USB memeory stick to take to your next location, only to forget it and be stuck in a pickle?

With Dropbox you won't have to worry about leaving your files at home or at work anymore.

Dropbox - www.dropbox.com

Any file you save to Dropbox also instantly saves to your computers, phones, and the Dropbox website. For example, I can write part of an essay using my home computer. This will instantly be uploaded to Dropbox if you download the program. Then when I get to school to finish it off I just have to download Dropbox onto the school computer or just login to my Dropbox account online and download the file.

Dropbox also allows account sharing, whereby you can invite people to look at and download your files. This is extremely useful if you are sharing things like holiday photos with your family and friends.

It is even available for use on your iPhone, iPad, Android and Blackberry phones so you have unlimited portability.

Lost my USB stick at my school in chestermere


Cannot help much with the one you lost, except if your have pre-backup for your USB, you might have some old data to refer.

Suggest in future you should conside the USB sticks that have:
1. SyncBack - is a good tool to allow you to perform backup USB data to your own computer (or vice versa). You may either install the software in your PC, or have the "no install" version in your USB storage device to backup to other places when you on the move.

2. Biometrics fingerprint recognition USB - This is not for recover your data, but to keep save your data that important away from others to view it, if they got hold of your USB. This type of USB cost is slightly higher (and slightly slower) due to data can be encrypted on written USB, with only recognize your fingerprint (or password, in case your fingerprint not working properly).

3. 3rd online storage portable apps - If you are out side with internet access to the computer, you may use online storage as your 1st (store everything online) or 2nd (store for backup only) line for your data. Example: Dropbox, SkyDrive, Google Drive portable softwares.

Hope this post helps.

I need to know the steps to save data onto usb memory stick from accounting program


I suggest that you save your data with Simply Accounting and know where you save it. In window explorer, find the file you saved and copy it to the USB memory stick. You should see the USB memory stick as another drive in Windows Explorer. After the copy is complete, Click the USB memory stick and you should see the file. This way, the copy (back up) is confirmed.
