Dropbox saved me today

I had finished editing an audio file in Audacity, and was saving it as an MP3 back over itself (I know, that's not good), when I lost power.

The original file had been placed into a shared Dropbox folder for me.  I had moved it from that folder, thereby deleting it on Dropbox, so that the one I was writing over top of was my only copy.

When power came back, I simply went to Dropbox's web site and undeleted the deleted file.  I then copied (not moved) to a new folder, edited it and saved it again.  Problem solved.

In related news, Dropbox announced an upcoming Android version coming in a few months, and released screenshots.  There is an Android in my future, so this is good news.
