Re: Dropbox objetive

Hey there @Miguel_AA,
Storing your files in your Dropbox account online will allow you to access your files from anywhere. You can easily browse your files online as well as edit them with many online applications.
You can also connect multiple devices to your account by downloading the Dropbox app on your computer and/or mobile devices (Android and iOS) to allow easy access to your files. You can access and edit files through your connected devices and Dropbox will automatically sync these changes in your account and across devices. If you need to store content from your computer in the cloud, then you can use our features Selective sync and/or Smart sync.
Sharing is also a big part of Dropbox, you can share your content with anyone regardless of if they have an account too! You can share folders to collaborate on content, or share a link to allow others to view and download the files. You can even use Dropbox Paper for real-time collaboration.
I hope this answers your question to some degree, but if you would like me to explain anything in more detail then let me know. I’d be more than happy to!
Hope you have a great day - Cheers!
