Dell's online store has a year of Dropbox Plus cloud storage for $69. Back in July Dell ran a similar deal for Dropbox Plus but then it was down to $60 and came with a $25 gift card. This deal isn't quite as nice as that, but we haven't seen a better deal since.

The $69 price itself is worth consideration because Dropbox charges $100 for the same plan from its online store.

Dropbox Plus's service provides up to 1TB of storage. You can use that space to backup any file you want. Any file stored in your Dropbox folder will be synced with the Dropbox folder on all of your devices, so you can access it anywhere. Plus Dropbox will store old versions of files and deleted files for up to a month. If a device with your Dropbox folder is lost or stolen, you can remotely delete the Dropbox folder.

Dropbox Plus can also upload all your photos for backup. And there's a sharing folder where you can drop files you want to give to someone else, create a link from which they can easily download those files, and set an expiration date for the link so that it no longer works after a set period of time.

The one problem with Dropbox Plus, as with most simple cloud storage solutions like this, is all the privacy encryption is on the Dropbox side of things. While Dropbox promises to keep your data safe from prying eyes, you can't personally cut anyone off from files you've stored with the service. Essentially, if you have really private stuff, you'll want to look into services with more personal privacy encryption. But for 90% of the documents and photos you need a place to store, Dropbox Plus works great.
