Well, that's the thing about Dropbox, it backs up your local stuff to the cleud every time you save.
Means I don't have to run a backup server, all my stuff is just there - even if I drop in on a hotel in Scotland and open up my tablet. Although I don't store stuff on the tablet, anything I edit on my Dropbox will get backed up to my home PC next time I switch it on.
Dropbox even keeps a rolling month's archive of old versions and deleted stuff, so if you do something disastrous you have a month's grace to recover it.
Failing to save in the first place excepted. But of course cron backups every fifteen minutes wouldn't protect against that either. Funnily enough, my Android tablet is pretty good at that. Even the odd system crash and restart in the "unstable-beta-test-forgot-to-tell-you" days has failed to wipe all of my currently open and unsaved work.
