Don't Miss: This How to find Fingerlings in Stock

Dropbox has been a favorite for people who work heavily online, but so many people have wished that they could do more with it. While the initial hope for the app was that people could use it to clear up their hard drives, there is more that can be done.

The cloud storage company now announces that they will have a new initiative called Project Infinite. It will allow users to see all of the files they have stored on their computer without actually having a local copy of each.

With Project Infinite, users will be able to not only look through the files, but also move them around within the Mac OS X Finder or Windows File Explorer, just like they normally would be able to do.

Right now, users who want to see the items would have to have them stored on their own computer as well as their computer - the same thing it had over seven years ago. Users are able to save storage space this way by saving things there.

Project Infinite would take Dropobx's basic concept of creating different folders and synching them to cloud so that it is easier to work with that large amount of files.

There is still a lot that is unknown about this new campaign. Dropbox hasn't said at what level they plan to include Project infinity, or even when it will be available for launch. Many people suspect that free users might be left in the cold, according to Engadget.
