You install the application on your MAC/PC. The installer will ask you to enter your username and password and then create a folder on your computer called Dropbox. Done! Now anything you drop in the Dropbox will be synced to Dropbox’s servers in the cloud. Then any other computer you install Dropbox on, will sync with all the other computers. So basically you can throw away your USB disk as you won’t need it anymore, you will have all your files easily accessible via the Dropbox folders on your computers and even via their cool Dropbox iPhone app. The iPhone app will allow you to save email attachments from your iPhone and throw them in your Dropbox to be accessed later. All of this for free.
