As some of you know, our site has grown exponentially in size. (which is a very good thing!!) We started out at just 50-100 MB usage in 2007 and now we just passed 4 GB (~4000 mb) for our nearly 13k users. But with great size comes great backup responsibility. The site is currently backed up daily to external hard drives and on Dropbox for extra protection - and that's where the problem comes in. Cloud space is expensive/limited but you can help!

All you have to do is sign up at dropbox through the following link (it's free). It gives you 2 GB of space + 500 MB for free for signing up through us. Plus dropbox is amazing if you are a student as you can upload files to a common folder and skip emailing/facebooking stuff.

Here's why you might want a dropbox
- SYNC: if you have multiple computers (laptop, desktop), install the desktop application on both of them and your files stay in sync.. Make changes on one computer, it automatically shows up on the other. I.e. group work... one person makes a change, everyone else sees it.. no email attachments required
- You have access to your uploaded files from mobile devices.
- BACKUP: If you accidentally hit save on a word document or file, dropbox allows you go back in time and restore older versions even if they have been written over.

And best of all You can use dropbox to sync your NeoMallers Portal 10 profiles across multiple computers! Just point the installation to your Dropbox folder and voila! changes made one computer automatically sync through all your devices.

Hey guys! Here's another little Dropbox goodie (+1 GB free) that I ran into.

Download the dropbox-acquired Mailbox app here: https://itunes.apple.com/CA/app/id576502633?mt=8&s=143455&ign-mpt=uo%3D4

Link your gmail account to it. Then click on DROPBOX in the app's settings area. that's it! you get another 1gb for free even if you delete the app.

That is pretty sweet.
I signed up for Dropbox just because of work a month ago, but maybe I should sign up with my home account info too for this, instead of carting a USB key back and forth with me every day happy

Hi everyone, Hope you have all had a good week etc.
Anyway I use the old portal that we could download to our computer and I went to copy and paste my sales into the portal but it keeps on coming up with errors, so I was wondering if we cant use that anymore please ?

I have 51 Pages of Wearable Items 4 Sale in my shop, you never know what Bargains you may find. I restock around 7 times a day.

To get to my shop please press on the link below
