Backups and File Sharing
Many of the files we use in design projects are extremely large in size and cannot be easily sent via email. We know your files and your backup copies are important and we want to help you store them in a safe place.
At Thyme For Design, we use a service called Dropbox to safely store files on a server for you to download. The free account holds up to two gigabytes of space and is sufficient enough for the amount of files we typically need to transfer to you. It is also a convenient way for you to share important project files with us.

Once you have opened your account, you will need to install the application to your computer by following the instructions provided by Dropbox (they are incredibly easy!). If you’d rather skip this step, you can do so and just access your data through the web interface. The desktop application is just a quicker way to use Dropbox and keep your files backed up to your hard drive as well as to the Dropbox server (added security).
When you have completed the Dropbox setup, look for the tab labeled “sharing”. Follow the on screen instructions to create a folder for your project and share it with us using this address: email@example.com. Once you have completed this step, we will be able to upload your files right to your personal Dropbox account for safekeeping.
