Dropmyemail introduce nueva característica para administrar archivos adjuntos


 

Dropmyemail, el servicio que nos ofrece copias de seguridad para nuestro correo electrónico, introduce un nuevo sistema de manejo de archivos adjuntos en la bandeja de entrada parecido a Dropbox que nos permitirá controlar todos los archivos añadidos a los emails a través de un servicio llamado “attachments” y permitirá visualizarlos, descargarlos e incluso compartir el contenido subido con su nuevo “file manager“.

Las opciones de exportar contenido incluyen poder compartir éste en Facebook, LinkedIn y Twitter, y con el file manager no sólo podremos controlar y compartir el contenido adjunto de una manera centralizada desde un mismo servicio sino enviarlas sin límite de tamaño. Los usuarios básicos dispondrán de un almacenamiento de 250MB gratis, mientras los usuarios que paguen pueden descargar archivos hasta el límite de su almacenamiento.

Dropmyemail es un servicio desarrollado por Dropmysite, aunque ésta ha sido su herramienta más popular, generando 632,000 suscripciones desde Marzo de ese mismo año.

Using AWS S3 to Power Your Digital World

As a designer, web developer, and techie-geek, I need a versatile and robust data storage solution that I can afford, but also use without learning some new language. So far, I’ve only found one service that can handle the large majority of my needs. This article covers how I use the Amazon Web Services Simple Storage Service (AWS S3) to meet most of my needs.

AWS S3

AWS S3 is Amazon’s cloud storage solution. It’s versatile, reliable, fast, and scalable to fit almost anyone’s needs. Of course with a service that sounds this great you would expect it to be expensive but it’s actually the most affordable storage solution I’ve found on the web, considering the features you get.

Amazon Web Services S3

AWS S3 is intended for developers, but thanks to some great tools, it’s easy enough for just about anyone to use. Before I get into how I use AWS S3, I want to mention that this storage solution doesn’t use the traditional file structure of folders/files, etc. Instead AWS S3 uses “buckets” in which you store objects. The tools I use make AWS S3 appear to be a normal file system with the exception of “buckets”. Think of a bucket as a separate hard drive where you’ll store your files. You might also want to read the Amazon S3 page on Wikipedia. So let’s get on with how I use AWS S3.


AWS S3 + Jungle Disk

I probably use Jungle Disk the most often because it makes it easy to use and manage my AWS S3 buckets, perform automated backups and centralize my data for access anywhere, at any time. When you use Jungle Disk with your AWS S3 account, you decide which of your individual buckets Jungle Disk can mount as a network drive. Then, you have drag-and-drop access to your AWS S3 files! Jungle Disk also encrypts your files, so they’re safe and secure.

YouSendIt Express Solves The “Too Big to E-Mail” Problem

Sending files–especially sizable art or photo files–to clients and editors can be problematic. Corporate firewalls simply don’t like large e-mail attachments (or, in some cases, any attachments). And, yet, we’re not about to spend the time or the expense to ship the files via a physical courier service. Our solution? We use an online service called YouSendIt (various pricing; a free plan exists). And, to make matters even easier, we use their free download software, YouSendIt Express.

YouSendIt Express screenshotYouSendIt Express looks like a typical e-mail message–but when you send files, instead of sending attachments that might be blocked by the recipient’s firewall, they are hosted on a private folder on the YouSendIt server, where your recipient can easily access and download them.

YouSendIt Express, a tiny, standalone program, is very simple to use. It’s similar to writing a typical e-mail message. Simply double-click the icon to quickly launch the program, select your recipients, type in a subject line, add an optional memo and select the file(s) or folder you want to send. Then, click the SEND button. The recipients will receive an e-mail from you with a link to a private folder, to download the files to their computer.

With stories abounding of identity theft aided by information lifted from discarded storage devices, you want devices you no longer plan to use to have no usable information when they head out the door.

Here’s how to wipe them clean.

Sure, you could erase the contents of the drive, but keep this in mind: the act of erasing a file does not remove it from a storage device. Leer más “How To Erase Your Data So No One Can Ever Recover It”
