Imagine you worked all week on a report for presentation to an important client tomorrow morning. At the end of the day you congratulate yourself and save the report files to your computer's hard drive.
The next morning you arrive at work only to find your worst nightmare coming true - your computer won't boot and you can't get the files. Your boss starts breathing down your neck to produce the report because the client arrives in five minutes. What will you do?
Use your personal space in your favorite Joomla site. How? Briefcase Factory for Joomla to the rescue! With lightning-like speed you jump onto a colleague's computer and pull up your personal hard drive on your community website. Log onto your account with a unique user name and password and bingo, your files come up on the screen.

Ever wonder what would happen if your computer and your backup files get destroyed by fire, flood or theft? Large corporations spend big money to keep their files archived on remote servers "just in case". Now you can do the same thing with your vital files at no cost.
