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.

Value for Money

I used the paid version for several years before switching to Google Drive. I still use the free version for my MS Access database work as it does not give rise to record lock conflicts when the attached database is still in use.

Pros

Clever synchronisation. There are very few problem files but Dropbox lets you know exactly which file is causing the problem.
Will happily manage MS Access with attached databases

Cons

There is not a lot that I do not like about Dropbox.
Little bit expensive if you don't need lots of storage.
The photos and camera uploads seems a bit under-developed give that this a significant area of use with a smart phone.

We use Dropbox with several clients not in our area, but since we are a medical based service company HIPAA is a big concern. We have had to use another cloud storage provider to get our HIPAA sensitive information back and forth between our providers, but we still use Dropbox occasionally for non HPI documents.

Pros

Dropbox has worked great for my company when we need documents from one of our clients that are not in our area. It's easy to install and use.

Cons

Our only problem with Dropbox is that it's not HIPAA compliant. You can password protect, but that's not enough for HIPAA.

Love this program-- it's the backbone of our company.

Pros

Cons

I have noticed that some files will mysteriously disappear. Doesn't happen often, but it does seem to happen. We've had to go through DB on occasion to help resolve. Always good to keep a back-up.

Overall, it's great! Just not as fluid to use consistently as we need.

Pros

It's an accessible place to store tons of documents for our team. The organization and ease of use is great, and the name recognition, desktop icons, and mobile app are a plus.

Cons

This app is incredibly hard to use out in the field. Some of our property managers use Anroids and some iPhones, but neither are able to edit certain key documents to keep them updated when they need to. Personally, I have never had an issue with this product and think it is great. But because of the issues my team is encountering, we are looking into other data storage options that are mobile-optimized.

Pros

- If you run into an issue with your Dropbox Teams account (large number of files deleted/missing, for instance), the Dropbox support team is fast and helpful for identifying and rolling back unwanted changes.
- Considerably file storage capacity when used in a business environment. The total available capacity increases with each user added to the account

Cons

- The cost. Dropbox is one of the most expensive cloud storage programs on the market, and they recently had a price increase. We don't look forward to seeing that bill every year, but you get what you pay for.

I use dropbox daily and I can say that the best thing that it has is:
1.- having an account is very easy; you sign up, choose the type of account you want (free or paid) and that's it. The user should not configure almost anything.
2 .- No matter what type of account you have, whether it is free or paid you can use dropbox without problems, without worrying that they give you little space, or that you can not upload or download large files.
3.- You can use and store all types of files without problems, either a .txt or a video file.
4.- the upload and download of files is usually quite fast and efficient.
5.- If you or someone deletes a file from the cloud you can retrieve it from the personal trash can you have in dropbox, which is a really good thing.
6.- dropbox can be used through a browser or through an installable application. The good thing is that the application has support for different operating systems, whether windows, android or ios.

Cons

I have mostly no complaints, it works very well for me and I can store all my work files and some epub that I have found hard to find.

I use Dropbox to share files.Dropbox unites my project team and encourages us to share and collaborate as a group.As an account manager , there are times I work from home and have no direct access to important documentation to address client complaints,Dropbox let me access such documentations remotely,saving me the stress of having to call for them or having to make it down to the office.

Pros

Dropbox business is used as a file repository at my workplace which provides me easy access to any file ,from wherever I may be.I find it intuitive and the user interface is similar to that of regular Dropbox and this makes it easier to use.

Cons

Dropbox is an affordable option for small and medium sized teams.

It is used by employees to back up and share large numbers of files between employees and our customers. Dropbox is very useful and effective when it comes to storage and sharing. No doubt it is very suitable for any company that wants to manage their files in a safe and fast way.

Pros

It has an excellent storage capacity and synchronization at a reasonable price. In addition, we can access any file at any time and from anywhere. Another strength of Dropbox is the storage capacity.

Cons

You pay for the best memory storage software available. Since it was solely built for memory storage and not some major companies way to make more money, its software is more effective and more design intuitive.

Pros

This software is probably the most intuitive/easy to use of the memory storage software programs. It has a desktop version for even easier file storage that also updates the file when you save it as the same file name. I feel that the design and layout of the program is a huge plus for this software. It is cleanly payed out and easy to use. This program was specifically built for the purpose of storing software. Others like Google creates their programs with their company design templates that aren’t as functionality minded as Dropbox.

Cons

It’s a little more expensive than other memory storage software though I feel it is the best. I haven’t had any problems with Dropbox.
