Brooks Duncan of DocumentSnap’s latest video tip

DocumentSnapper Brooks Duncan is my guru for matters related to going paperless. And one reason I subscribe to his blog is for videos like this one. Brooks is constantly learning new technologies and playing around with them and learning their little tricks, then creating short and simple videos like this one on Dropbox (a popular online storage site) for the non-geeks like me. (If you’re not yet a signed up Dropbox member – it’s free! – , consider signing up here:; you’ll be giving me some free Dropbox storage space as well as yourself. Did I tell you it was free?)

Brooks’ explanations are free of technical jargon (tho he’s assuming a certain familiarity with the basics of a pc and the Internet), short and to the point.

If you’re thinking of going paperless, or just started, and feel in need of some experienced advice, I recommend Brooks Duncan’s 7-part free email course. Sign up on his home page.

And if you like that, and are already on the paperless road, check out his Document Organization Guides. He has three at 3 different prices. There’s sure to be one that fits your needs and your wallet. (Disclosure: I’m an affiliate, so if you buy one from this site, I get a commission.)

If you want to see which files have changed in your Dropbox account at a point in time, or if you want to undelete a file that you may have accidentally deleted, you can do both of these things through the web interface.View the video below, or click here to watch it on YouTube. If you are able to, I recommend that you watch it with HD turned on.
