I have used Dropbox for a long time, but have somehow missed this feature. In the web interface, you can see a log of all changes that have been made to files in your Dropbox account.
To access it, either click here and log in with your Dropbox credentials, or go to the web interface and click on the Events tab.
Once there, you can see a log of all the changes that have been made to the files in your Dropbox account.
As you can see, this morning I have been writing this post (how meta) and last night I updated my shopping list and did an exercise from Zed Shaw’s Learn Python The Hard Way.
You can either go back page by page, or jump to a specific date if you want to check something out (for example, someone logging into your account sans password).
Dropbox security concerns aside, I wish more cloud applications would provide this change-by-change level of audit. Great feature.
