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.

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.

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.

I'm pretty happy with Dropbox. I've been using it for years. I started using it for personal data storage - to clear up space on my phone or PC and also to share photos with friends and family. Then, we started using it at work. It's ease of use sold me. Team members are able to quickly and easily share documents. Plus, I can access them anywhere - even from my portable devices. They have great options for storage, too, so you're paying for more storage than you need. Then, when you need more storage, it's easy to increase your plan.

Ability to upload, create folders, files, etc. Cloud-based and easy to navigate

Somewhat limited space for free account but still a very good option for storage

Advice to Others

Suggest others find out exactly what they need from the software.... the list of needs / wants, etc. and go from there. Not all software is created the same so do your homework before jumping in.

Sending files via email is a pain. Dropbox allows you to create a shared folder, share it with whomever you want to, set access permissions and go. Access to project files, family photos, etc. is quick anywhere as long as you have internet access. I use this all the time and it works great.

I've been using Dropbox for business and personal use and have found it to be straightforward, easy to use and it takes a headache out of sharing digital content. Collaboration with others worldwide couldn't be easier. We work with companies in different time-zones and who speak different languages, but that's no problem for Dropbox - everyone gets it.

Pros

Ease of use

Cons

pricing

Advice to Others

This is one of the simplest cloud sharing/storage products out there - you won't be disappointed, even with the free version.

For sharing documents it isnt bad. For submissions with a deadline it is trash.

Pros

Accessing documents

Cons

If there is a deadline to submit, DropBox functions extremelly badly. I submitted a paper a minute before deadline, but since there were so many other users doing the same, it refused the request because of being overloaded, and terminated my submission. This made me not like DropBox at all.

Advice to Others

Don't use this as a deadline submission tool
