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.

The software is easy to use and great to implement both to personal and to business use

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'.

I'd spend the money to have more space just because it's so conviennent. Thanks Dropbox!!

Pros

Easy to use, amazing funcinality, intagrates well with MAC and PC. It's like having a huge hard drive!

Cons

I can't think of one at the moment. Maybe the price factor per gb is a little much. I saw some other clouds had a monthly unlimited feature that made more sense.

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.

File sharing for a small business that does not have a network server - it is also great for using as a backup system for certain files.

Pros

We are a small business and do not have an in-house network server for file sharing. Using dropbox allows us to easily share any kind of files with other employees - or even making a separate folder to share specifically with vendors or associates outside the company.

Cons

I do not like using it on a mobile device nearly as much as the full version on the pc. The full version has better functionality.

When uploading/downloading or even just viewing from the phone, I often get confused where my files are getting saved and with whom it's being shared with (with some folders shared with other people)

Pros

- Files are secure (been using for a few years now)
- Syncing between phone app and computer are almost instant

Cons

- Free storage space is very small (8gb)
- Not very user friendly.
- Phone Notifications about full storage space is very irritating and difficult to disable (Android)

Google Drive may be a better alternative

We use it to share files and folders with all of our clients that need to proof our product before their website goes live or their product goes to print.

Pros

It makes it so easy to share files and restrict who sees what. I'm not even sure that we're using all that dropbox has to offer!

Cons

I wish it were possible to get just a little more storage on the freemium option. We're not quite ready to pay for the service just yet but we need a little more space.

Keep it cleaned out so you don't use up unnecessary space :)

Pros

I think the ease of use of dropbox is one of it's best features. I also like it's collaborative nature.

Cons

I think user experience could be elevated if there was a way to see new assets in a folder separately. Right now it seems like the user must go into the folder and search by date for the newest uploads.

I love DropBox and it gets easier to use with each update. Easy to upload files. Easy to create folder structure. Easy to share. Love the image of it on my hard drive.
I have wondered about using it within a multi-user group and for more business/corporate.
I think for multi-user group it can work well, within its conceptual constraints -- and that there needs to be protocols for naming and storing files to which everyone agrees.

Use it, and enjoy.
