Saving Database for Transfer

I'm using Act! Pro Version, Hot Fix 1 that I downloaded in 2014, running Windows 7 Professional.


I'm relocating and leaving my current employer where everything is saved on a local machine (private database).  I'm hoping my future employer will utilize Act and I'd like the ability to transfer over all my contacts, histories, calendar etc once I'm there.  I'm very computer illiterate and want to be sure I get this right.  I won't be able to access my database once I am gone in a few days.  


Is it possible to upload and my database to Dropbox?  I greatly appreciate any help that can be offered in walking me through this.

In the ACT! program go to File | Backup | Database and make a backup of you database and then you can copy the zip file to a flash (thumb) drive and take it with you.
