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.

Dropbox has saved me a lot of time

Value for Money

Pros

The best thing about this software is being able to access anything anywhere. It does a great job at keeping everything in sync and offline if you need it.

Cons

Having to remember to save stuff offline can get you in trouble if you need a document when you don't have wifi or cell phone service.

Dropbox just works

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Customer Support

Value for Money

Pros

It works on all of my devices and as a former user of Box I can 100% say that Dropbox wins out. Mainly for fastest syncing of new files. When using Box the file always had to be 100% uploaded before you could copy a link and share which really made for a bad user experience in my opinion.

Cons

Occasionally the share links don't show up on my mac... Sometime restarting the app works but it's still very intermittent and I can't say exactly why this has happened to me. It doesn't happen enough to be a huge problem though.

It's a great program although maybe a bit pricey but overall a good purchase and so far I think the best one out there.

Pros

It's very convenient; It's secure; has a nice interface; and I love the way it integrates with the computer.

Cons

Sharing options need to be better for business accounts;
Would also like to be able to have 2 different business accounts on one computer.

Really like what Dropbox has to offer, we will continue to use the product, just wish it came at a lower cost.

Pros

This product is really nice. We like how fast it works not only to share but also to save. It is also easy to share and organize which makes it easy to use overall.

Cons

This product is very expensive. If there could be different size and price options, especially for nonprofits, that would be great!

Its a well functioning system and great for file sharing.

Pros

That the controls around sharing are easy to use and maneuver and it's very clear who has access to what.

That others can change documents or remove them, whether they created them or not. That isn't a terrible thing, but we've had documents disappear on us and end up in someone's 'trash'.

Working very well. However, when the free storage space has run out, it's impossible to trust dropbox to store important files. If the prices were a bit lower I would consider paying for it.

Annoying popups, to little free storage, too pricey.

Streamlined sales and service process with mobile access. Allows us to share files with customers and contractors without giving them access to our database, protecting us from hacking or theft of intellectual property.

Pros

Allows us to share files both internally and externally and control access. File sharing with remote employees has helped us gain higher efficiency in managing our sales and service processes.

Cons

Some of the menu options are not available until you get down into the file folder, it would be nice to be able to pull up the options from the home screen.

Piece of mind is a given when Dropbox is a part of the ecosystem. That alone is worth the investment which is hardly a hit on cash flow.

Pros

The piece of mind you will receive once Dropbox is a part of your ecosystem is exhilarating. Years ago I walked into the office one morning to a friend server. later I received a file with all the company files that were able to be retrieved from DriveSavers. It cost me some amount to have temp help to reconstruct the file structure and rename all the files. I vowed to never walk through this experience again. Thankfully Dropbox entered the market. I still do local backups but knowing the files are secure is peace of mind. Also, Dropbox Business allows for easy transfer of files, request file folders and segregation of permissions. This all assists in keeping certain files private and some easily accesible. It is all you need to finally say goodbye to the expensive and unreliable local servers. I am now using this solution for my business.

Cons

The need to download asserts if selective sync is not enabled on a certain file or folder. This creates some duplication and fills memory on a computer.

Easy file transfer, and access to files until the Dropbox system deletes them without warning.

Pros

Easy to use...when it works, as it works silently in the background, transferring files. And, as it happens, voluntarily deleting them

Cons

Total absence of customer support for free customers: can complain on community, which means that you might get an "Oh, too bad" now and then from someone you can't contact directly. Nasty internal bug deletes files without warning and attributes deletion to the user when--guaranteed--the user had absolutely nothing to do with it and heard about when Dropbox claimed they deleted the files. No way to report this, except for paying customers who--guess what?--are also having that problem and getting the same feeble responses.

We can easily share data with our researchers across the globe. We can all work together, to edit and maintain databases, and it warns us when we're trying to work on files at the same time to prevent data loss.
