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.

Easy to use, compatible with many devices and platforms, very common. I also like how stable it is.

Low capacity in the free accounts. That’s ok, but the upgrades are more expensive, in my experience, than other services.

Ease of use, the UI is intiutive and very easy to use, I like the fact that there are free options until a certain storage capacity.

Cons

Not completely free, lol
There should be an option with different plans varying in storage capacity and pricing. I am not sure if this is available but an option to be able to pull our data from other cloud storage solutions would be amazing.

Unless you want to pay for additional data, difficult to use Dropbox as a one-stop shop, but useful for smaller files and integrates well with IOS.

Like the ability of it to share directly from windows explorer vs having to go to the web side.

Wish there was more data available in the free version.

User Friendly, app is easy to use. One of the original storage cloud company. Price is low for 1TB of cloud storage vs other competitor.

Cons

I would like DropBox to bring back photo album features on the App. Where I can create album, and tag that photo to that album. It would be cool to do the same for Music or video as well. Maybe even just file in general? All the file sit in 1 folder, and a sub folder is created based on a tag. Create it, where it's not a duplicate file, but a link..

it is a very responsive cloud app with a very well established cache system that allow you to quick review of data and even music , you can play music like on your ipod.

Pros

It is on the cloud so all your files are anywhere you go , you can gain free space for every friend you invite that join with an account and you start with 2 free GB.
You can share folders with your team mates to keep track of important files.

Cons

To get larger storage space you will need to pay for a subscription that definitely worth it , you can upgrade on a range of storage plans.

I would recommend Drop Box to anyone who needs to send larger files in an efficient and effective manner.

Pros

I like that I have the capability send links to large files to people I am trying to serve. These folks need to be able to access the larger files (often audio files or short video files) that I send them, but my e-mail carrier has limits that prevent me from sending them.

Cons

Sometimes the interface seems confusing and I have to play around before I figure out how to send a link to the file. But I always figure it out, eventually.

I used drop box extensively during my time as a student and found it invaluable to share files and documents with my class mates and teachers.

Pros

Easy file sharing between people - You can create shared folders and members of the folders can contribute to the folder
Automatic Camera Upload from your phone

Limited Storage if you take a lot of photos and use the automatic camera upload
Pricing for more storage is competitive but I feel more storage should be offered to free users

I try to remember what we used to do in the "Olden Days" without DropBox and I'm so thankful that this technology is available to us today. I don't know what my Accounting Firm would do without it!

Pros

This product is the most convenient software available when you are trying to get that last bit of missing information from a client. Most clients do not have the time to drop off information at your office. But just with the few clicks of a mouse they have upload that information and it will be available to me almost instantly! Having the ability to pdf documents or QB back-ups and retrieve these online is one of my favorite things available to me!

Cons

The one con I find with this software is that some clients of mine are not that tech-savvy and feel a little intimidated with the product. Being able to talk them through the steps, though, is not difficult at all!!

I can say at one point that I had 50GB of space as a promotion to get me to upgrade to a paid account. When that space disappeared, I thought I'd miss it but that didn't end up being the case. I have accumulated an extra few GBs (for a total of 5GB) of space by adding devices to my account but I'm not sure if this deal is active still or not.

Pros

Quick and easy to set up. Easy to use and configure. I love being able to choose where on my computer my Dropbox files are stored. Being able to share access to files is also a great feature that is hard to come by in a free solution.

Cons

2GB may not be enough space for everyone but when it's FREE, it's hard to pass by. And there's always the premium options when more space is needed.

I like that you can sync many devices on it, and that for the most part, it works well with sharing with collaborators. For the most part, it's accessible for anyone you want to collaborate with.

The constant issues with signing in and syncing on my mac are annoying. It's also fallen behind in functionality for a cloud-based software, where others are much more user-friendly these days.

Pros

You can keep all your photos and memories (videos, mp3 anything) and save it and access it anytime whenever you want.
It is easily accessible and you can download app in mobile which makes it portable.
free upto some limit but you still get lots of space free without any cost.

I really don't have any negative thing about this but still of we can get the space free and they can earn more using advertisement so it will put least load on user or students who cannot afford it.
