each of their computers, which Dropbox then synchronizes so that it appears to be the same folder (with the same contents) regardless of which computer is used to view it. Files placed in this folder also are accessible through
a website and mobile phone applications.

Dropbox folder may be recovered from any of the synced computers Dropbox supports multi-user version control,
enabling several users to edit and re-post files without overwriting versions The version history is by default kept for 30 days
