Lost Files & Changes
Have you ever lost or deleted a file? DropBox makes it possible to recover those files and save working hours and potential embarrassment, provided they were deleted within the previous 30 days. In addition, all changes made to files within a team folder are instantly available to all team members, keeping everyone up to date with the most recent project developments.
Control access to folders via passwords and permissions. The control panel is intuitive and easy to use.
