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

Aside from the obvious benefits of cloud storage, their support team is amazing. If you accidentally delete a lot of files for some reason, they can help you locate and undo the deletion event.

Cons

It's pretty slow to index after a large number of file changes. If you have more than 500,000 files on your storage, it takes a really long time to index.

Pros

What's good about this software is that you can easily share files to your chosen viewers. You won't have to spend more time in sending through email.

Cons

The risk might be the confidentiality of the files you saved on your drop box. You have to be more careful on choosing whom you will share your files.

Plus, the integration with other apps such as Microsoft Office, Adobe, and a lot more.. Can't live without it... it's a very huge help in my career and as my personal backup tool.

There's nothing I can say bad about this cloud storage. Everyone should try it and benefit from its very important and effective services. You will also be amazed.

One of the best cloud storage solutions. It delivers stable performance and connectivity, being able to retrieve and edit documents anywhere that you are is a must for us and Dropbox offers a very flexible all-round solution.

Dropbox aims to be a "simple" storage solution, which is does quite brilliantly, but I would definitely have liked to see some more complex features be introduced in the premium tiers.

Just get it! Worth it even if you don't use it that often.

Pros

Listen, for all those who are unable to understand what FTP really is then this software makes it easy. Easily drop a file into dropbox go to your office and login and there is your file sitting in dropbox. You can't beat an easy service like this.

Cons

I would say price but even then the price is totally worth it and is cheap compared to purchasing an actual FTP site and all the maintenance that entails.

I will not pay a monthly fee and now I don't use it anymore. But I would if it was a once off top up fee.

Pros

Easy to use on my phone but was unaware that there was a storage limit I just thought the program came with my phone.

Cons

Expensive if you have to get more storage. It should have a 1 off fee to top up storage not a monthly fee. And I would have liked to know this before I started using the program.

The best thing about this software is that it has a lot of users. Most of our clients are already using this due to its efficiency so there is a good familiarity on both sides.

Able to store personal documents and information on Dropbox's Cloud service.
App is easy to use, able to access documents quickly and on the go . Able to share content with other users who might not be on dropbox
10GB is enough for personal use.

Cons

Website can take a while to load sometimes, you can avoid this issue by installing the desktop application or phone app.
The Desktop application can use data when you are unaware (automatic syncing). Make sure to set your syncing to manual if you have data limitations.

Overall A+ Experience. Clients only give good reviews of Dropbox as well

Pros

When I have to share my projects I film and photo with my drone, I only use dropbox. My clients prefer this way to get content because ease to view the content and download after.

Also - there are many free type solutions out there but have many limits:
1. Size limits - most cap you at 1 gigabyte or so and that doesn't do well for me as I upload videos that are 500mb a piece...
2. Ads - lot of freeware out there you can use but it is loaded with ads - my clients don't want to be advertised to, they are paying for service so I try to service them in a clean easy to use way to get my content
3. Usability - lot of free ware you can get a d/l link but you have to email clients. Dropbox can save all your email contacts inside the app to make it very easy to share your content with them and also saved for future use

Cons

Not many cons as you are paying for service. Only sometimes I wish it was a little cheaper but still worth the $

I only store the files that I have uploaded to it in the past. Too pricey to continue subscription.

Pros

Popular, Widepspread compatibility with third party apps
Better security , ability to delete files from remote/lost device
almost unhackable
Files remain saved even if subscription expires and unlike Google, Dropbox won't block your bowel (ie incoming emails to Gmail)

Cons

Overpriced (at least the standard business version, with only 3TB for whole team)
No office suite or any software included except for Dropbox app itself.
No donuts (storage space) for free users
Mysteriously deletes files sometimes. Also encountered ocassions when a file can not be downloaded or uploaded at the speed at which it should (slow file transfer)

Great cloud storage that offers different plans. I love our current unlimited plan. I can store all the large files that I need.

Pros

For larger files, my team and I use Dropbox business. We can also share it easily between the team members. There is also a limited free version of it. We are using the unlimited plan as of the moment and we love it to death. It has lots of great features. I love the fact that I can control who can see our files. The syncing feature is reliable and i didn't have any trouble using it.

Lastly, their pricing is competitive, specially the unlimited plan.

Cons

There are times that uploading is very slow specially in the desktop version.

To be honest, apart from the slow customer care team, my overall experience with DropBox Business has been very great. It has been a lifesaver in our organization. It is the best file sharing and collaboration tool that we have ever used in our organization.

Pros

I like using DropBox Business because it helps us perform a variety of activities in the workplace. We use to save files on the cloud. Moreover, it helps us in sharing files across devices on the cloud. When using it, we are able to access our company's files or documents from anyplace when our devices are connected to the internet.

Cons

The customer care team of DropBox Business is somehow slow. The team takes a lot of time before responding to our queries. It is somehow disappointing and time-consuming.

Good system for its time (when it was first launched) but need to update its functionality as many other systems - one drive/google drive offer the same (probably better functionality) and they are free with larger storage space. It needs to up its game.

Pros

Ease of sharing WIP documents with colleagues across different location

Cons

At times dint link/sync properly with altered documents. Also despite/when not using the platform, kept getting regular updates (too many) when a colleague altered or amended a document. Also one drive seemed to work better and with larger storage space.

I am a freelancer. Most of my worked are all confidential. I decided to save that in a dropbox because I know that the file is safe and it is very easy to used.

Pros

I like it the most is when you save file, you were just like saving files in your conputer and you can always open the application anywhere as long as you have an internet connection.

Cons

In my experience, you have to avail or purchase the other account which is not a free account for you to enjoy and have more memory to used in your dropbox.
