If you need access to your files on the move, there are two options available to you. The first is to make use of removable storage devices such as USB drives, but a better option is to make use of cloud storage such as DropBox – this means that your files can be accessed from any computer with an internet connection.

Dropbox Folder Sync is a simple tools which makes it easier to work with Dropbox. The program makes it possible to choose to synchronise folders outside of Dropbox by making use of the context menu.

By simply right clicking on a folder and selecting the Sync With Dropbox option, synchronisation will be set up for you. Should a folder with the same name already exist, you will be asked to confirm the action to avoid overwriting or deleting files.

Dropbox Folder Sync is a very simple idea, but it adds handy functionality to Dropbox. Future editions of the program will include the ability to synchronise individual files, so this is certainly one to watch.
