Dropbox has already been preloaded on some of the newest HP and Acer tablets, and PCs will follow in early 2015. Earlier this month we also launched a special space promotion on eligible HP and Acer devices.
One of the great things about Dropbox is that you can access your information from almost any device. But what if you’ve lost your phone, misplaced your laptop, or sold your tablet?
