I have the free 2GB service from Dropbox.
Recently I uploaded some WIP files to my Photos folder, in order to have some sort of backup during a thunderstorm. My regular backup drives are still off site.
It took a long while to upload. BUT, when I realized that I had not "copied" the files, but "moved" the files to DropBox, I wanted them back.
I dragged them back, and they came back INSTANTLY. No dowload time. I went to the instructions, to see if they were just aliases, or something. Couldn't really find an answer.
The files are back on my hard drive, functional. But: Why does it take no time at all to bring them back. Scary. Sounds like something is wrong.
