Never used Dropbox, I have questions

I've never used Dropbox, I've seen some on here using it. I went there but you can't check it out without signing up.

It seems you can upload files, manuals, pictures, documents?

Can you make some of these of your choosing private giving others a password? Can you set up different docs with different passwords limiting access?

Can you make them all public?

Can you search for manuals that others have uploaded?

Do you get spammed giving them your email address?

Do you receive junk from them?

Can you post requests for manuals and such? Are you notified with a response?

Is it free?

Another option is Google Drive which is similar to DropBox. Itís basically an internet connected harddrive where you can upload and download file and access it anywhere as long as you have internet connection. Itís free up to a certain size limit, then you can buy more storage space.

You can choose to share a folder or an individual file with as many people as you like and revoke their access also st any point. It is not a chat room and you can not use it to request manuals or anything. But if someone wants to email you a large file (manual) you could simply share a folder with them so they can put the large file in the folder directly.

Google doc is a product of Google and Gmail. I have not noticed any more new spams since joining years ago.

Hope the helps.
