re: DropBox Restores Service, Mum On Outage Cause
I did not even notice that the service was out for a period of time on Thursday. I on the other hand did not use Dropbox for any of my projects that day, or I would highly be upset. This is just one of the issues that you must take into consideration when selecting to use the cloud for all your services and to store your documents. If an occurrences can occur with a large company such as Dropbox then it can occur with any company. You as the individual must decide if the rick of loosing a days worth of work because you cannot access your files, into a make or break for you business. All in all this has taught a lesson, have backup of the backup plan!
