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.

Supported Operating System(s):
Web browser (OS agnostic)

    Pros

    Whenever I go to a field work or trip, I don't need to carry hard drives anymore since my files can be viewed through internet which makes it easy to access anywhere.

    Cons

    What can I say bad about it? It lessen the hassle for me. Maybe minor issue like syncing problem that whenever I save it takes too much time to sync.

    Pros

    Dropbox is intuitive and easy to use. Whether on a browser or across devices. The ability to map Dropbox as a file on the machine is great!

    Cons

    The way in which it tracks storage and then asks you to buy more space is a little irksome. I've spent as much as to keep an instance going.

    I started as a free user and now I’m a paid user, all this happened because Dropbox is great.

    Pros

    I’m using Dropbox for years to store and share data with my coworkers and friends. It's a wonderful cloud storage for Documents, pictures and videos. Folders are easy to categorize, and helps me in organizing my personal and work data altogether. Initially it came with 2 GB free storage, which was little insufficient but then I learned about a feature; encourage others to sign up for drop box in order to earn extra storage. It worked for me for a while, but thanks to the great features, now i'm a paid user. It's simply awesome and help me access my data anywhere.

    Cons

    It works great, just there was once when I stopped using it for more than 2 months, i started to receive warning emails from Dropbox to sign in otherwise they would deactivate my account. Since I’m afraid to lose my data, , therefore, i keep signing in whenever I get the chance. Dropbox should really change this policy.

    for me, this software it very useful , i usually use it for share my files in the company .

    Pros

    i like the way they give for up and down the files,
    it is very useful the link stuff for share any file,
    very easy to use.

    Cons

    sometimes i have some delay to download my files,
    if i need share a lot of files simultaneously i need to select them one by one and i wish if this software can develop some kind of automated indexed folder, for select my files title based in order, and i can do a better and quicker selection of them.
