    Sure, as long as you have the capacity. Probably better to consider Music Match instead.

    They have a free 2GB plan with ways to get small additional chunks of storage or larger plans that cost money. If you have much more than 2GB of music you may need to purchase storage of you want to but all of your music on their servers.

    Seriously, do you EVER stop to think about these questions? 300 posts in 1 month, most of them ridiculous questions.

    LoL.... Trust me, I feel the same way and have been put in the penalty box a few times for not being able to control my response..... My favorite threads are the ones people make asking complete strangers how they should spend a few hundred dollars.....OR the ones that want people to help them decide color, case ect ect.

    I thought I was just an ******, good to know I'm not the only one!

    How else is he/she supposed to get an avatar without asking ridiculous questions.

    Asking thought-through questions will take forever.

    They lose money if everybody on there is a free customer.


    Yet, there are a LOT of people who want additional storage, and are willing to pay for it. Those people make up the costs of the freebies (Such as myself :p), and generate profit for Dropbox.
