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.

Pros

Dropbox makes it real easy to send documents, receive them, protect them, etc. This is the best file sharing software out there.

Cons

Not much I can really bring up. Maybe because this is across the board, but I wish they'd have something for construction specifically so we can track plans and RFI's.

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.

Cons

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'.

Easy to use, easy to share.

Seems to not take up a lot of Mac resources, which is a big plus.

Cons

For business, I am not convinced that there is enough administration rights controls for me to control who gets access to what data. The backup scheme may be different, but I have not found that to be true yet. I would look at the newer Backblaze or

I've been using Dropbox for a while. I am very happy with the service. The user experience and corporate identity are phenomenal.

However, I had a bad experience with their customer service. It is simply impossible to talk to someone to help you at Dropbox. My problem was that I created a Dropbox account from a corporate email which didn't exist after I left the company. One day, Dropbox decided to reset my password. Because my email didn't exist any longer I couldn't retrieve my password and couldn't access my Dropbox.

Because I couldnt reach anyone at Dropbox I lost all my music, pictures etc...

Pros

User-friendly and easy to use.

Cons

Very very bad customer support

I use Dropbox daily to interact with my teams. Use this to make sure you can access drives everywhere. I have used it for years and did not need to upgrade until last year.

Pros

It is easy to use for the access and storage you get. The free version is useful and the additional space is great value.

Cons

If you lose it it is gone. Back up your storage. They don't. I have heard the customer service is not that effective but have never had to use it.

I love how dropbox integreates with apps/filesystems on my windows, macbook, android, and iphone.

For business, it gives a great place to exchange customer files without having to host accounts, file storage, secure access, etc. in our own facility

I place to store, organize and share large files for volunteer and art related projects.

Pros

I like the ability to be able to organize my different projects into file and subfiles. I have one Dropbox and I use it for several different projects. It is easy to use with regards to storage and sharing. And you can share just one project or set of files or all of them as you choose regarding who you want to give access.

Cons

I have a hard time connecting with other Dropbox locations to transfer or download files. I have a project I work on each year where I hire a photographer to take approximately 100 photos of the event and I always have trouble getting them from his Dropbox location to mine.

the basic functions of the software are great. file sharing, accessibility, and storage are good.
You can disable the plethora of email notifications that you don't want/need.
You can tailor the size of storage you want.

Cons

Color contrast is nonexistent. web interface is 99% white space, lines and boarders are so thin and pale you can't see them, icons look like they are meant for kids' toys, not a business. Menu access and structure have been overly complicated. Account settings has very few settings and no option to customize UI.

DropBox serves as an internal shared drive for everyone at my company. As the HR Manager, it is easy for me to update documents and not have to email everyone each time there is an update. They can each access the newest documents as they need them.

Cons

Multiple users cannot be live in a document at the same time. If each user makes a change, it saves 2 versions of the document. Our company is virtual and at times it would be helpful if 2 or 3 people can work in the same document live at the same time.
