Dropbox Software


 

Dropbox is a cloud-based file sharing software system that caters to individuals and businesses of all sizes. This solution allows users to share files and send file requests to people even if they don’t have a Dropbox account. Multiple users can leave comments on files and can collaborate with Microsoft Office.

The solution can recover deleted files and maintains version histories in case users want to recover old file versions. It also keeps track of all actions performed on specific files.

Advanced sharing enables only selected users to see important files, and files can be remotely wiped if sensitive data gets compromised. Dropbox can also back up all photos as they are added.

Dropbox also provides an admin panel to control files centrally. User licenses, content and access permissions can be transferred from one user to the other.

Love the readability and design layout very cool.

Pros

Love that you can invite people "share" simply by adding their contact info, and sending them a link. It makes transferring large files super easy!

Cons

Not enough start out memory. Not sure what I'm going to do when it gets full and or archive files - offering more storage per person.

Dropbox is a very solid product. It's fairly convenient and easy to use. Working with photos, I did have to upgrade pretty quickly to the paid version.

Pros

Shared folders. Ability to view images in-site. Easy downloads.

Cons

Size limits (transfers and folders) are often to small for working with photos.

Had some good experiences with drop box, nice service, kinda hard to use on the phone though.

Pros

Sharing files.

Cons

I use it mostly for music, so it's not the best interface for playing music files from different recording softwares and music interfaces etc. but still works well enough. We use it to share live shows and demos of tunes for the band.

Pros

Dropbox makes it easy to store pictures and music and share them with others without taking up too much space on your computer.

Cons

Dropbox does require you to purchase more space once you've used up the free stuff. Once you learn to use it its easy and worth it.

I can use in every device I have, it can sync with my Synology Storage so I can have a local copy to work on.

Overprice a little bit. As the storage price continues to drop, I believe the Dropbox price should go down at the same rate.

Love it. Use it. Highly recommend it.

Pros

Dropbox is amazingly easy to use and is a great way to keep all of your files synced across all of your devices. I've also used it to share files with event photographers.

Cons

The only con I can think of is that you quickly run out of space unless you pay for it, but that's not really a con because it's a great value for your money. Also the free service is more than adequate.

Enjoy the ability to share docs with my team, volunteers and attenders to our online internet campus and online small groups.

Pros

Ability to share a link and make live for a limited time.

In order to view entire video users must have a dropbox account. I totally understand why, but can be a challenge for those less technical.
