A dropbox is a term associated with cloud computing where you can add files remotely to a server. If you want to create your own FTP dropbox, then you can use the inbuilt Internet Information Services Manager to set it up. This means that if you are at a friend's house or on a work computer, you can connect to your home computer via FTP and upload documents, multimedia or anything else that you want to store there.
