DropBox is a service that keeps a certain folder in your computer sincronized with other computers (your laptop, desktop, dev server, your team`s dev machines, etc). Whatever file you put or change on your DropBox folder, it will be changed and syncronized across all your computers, whatever they are running Windows, Linux or Macintosh.
From DropBox.com web site:

Some folks use DropBox as a code repository. DropBox allows file versioning and maintains the history of every change made on your code (see screenshot):
This DropBox thing is ok, but you sure prefer all the power behind SVN: merging, branching, tagging, etc... and of course, you may feel better knowing that SVN is open source (what if suddenly DropBox closes business and you lose all the history of your source code??).
In the other hand, you are a freelancer or a small team of developers and DON'T need or want to maintain a dedicated SVN server 24x7 on the internet.
The solution is pretty simple, keep reading:
127.0.0.1 svn.midominio.com #whatever domain or subdomain you choose will work.
And you got it, you have just created a SVN environment that will be online 24x7 without a dedicated SVN server using DropBox!
