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.

Saves time and effort in saving and transferring files from a pc to smartphone. Dropbox is a perfect cloud storage.

Pros

Dropbox helps save time and effort in transferring files, I don't need to transfer my files from pc to anywhere. I can view the files I save in Dropbox even on my smartphone. This is so helpful application, and very easy to use.

Cons

So far, a very important application for me. There is nothing bad about this software and I'm thankful for the free 2GB .

I love this for construction file sharing that does not have HIPPA or privacy related concerns

Pros

I love the fact I can sync with a desktop to keep files current with my sub contractors work progress.
The platform has usability options for all devices making it easy to collaborate, it can also integrate and zap to other programs and tools.

Cons

Security is hard to manage, one of my subs had a security breach which put my entire organization at risk. Types of allowed documents should be restricted.

Super useful. A bit costly. But probably worth it.

Pros

Dropbox is the standard for syncing your files across multiple devices, and is extremely useful when you're sharing large files that need to be accessed by multiple people. It works flawlessly without having to think about it.

Cons

Space is limited, and the Pro or Business versions are pretty expensive when you're a very small business with...well, almost no budget. Also, in the past we've had issues with team members removing or deleting files because they didn't realize that dragging something out of a Dropbox folder and onto your desktop means that it will disappear from everyone else's computers.

Dropbox is one of the best cloud sync storage providers. Google Drive is a big contender and has been steadily improving, but Drive is trying to land a solid service while Dropbox's desktop sync software still shines.

Pros

My biggest advocation for Dropbox is how it integrates cloud backups into your computer's native file structure. Having on-computer search and version management is amazing.

Just when their software was getting stale, Dropbox introduced their Smart Sync feature. Smart sync is a fantastic way to manage thousands of files easily on any device, whether that's a custom-made PC workhorse or a MacBook Air. Smart Sync surpasses Selective Sync in almost every way, but it's not perfect.

Dropbox Business also introduces simultaneous personal and work accounts, which is fantastic. Because nearly everyone I know has a personal dropbox that they don't necessarily want backed up with work files. Dropbox handles these two accounts smoothly, letting you have two dropbox folders on your computer and allowing you to manage permissions individually.

I prefer it over Box.com and OneDrive. Even though those pieces of software may have more admin management tools, they show their age by how cluttered and complicated those tools are to manage. Dropbox is simple so you don't have to spend more time managing users than you have to.

Cons

The way Dropbox handles their billing cycles is annoying and costly for rapidly adding and removing users. We use the annual billing cycle. If you go over your user cap, you have to pay for a full year of another user account immediately. Staying under your user cap doesn't get you a prorated rate and you don't get reimbursed for users you don't use.

Versioning and file change management has always been good with Dropbox, but recently it's been making some larger mistakes that can take hours or even days to sync up, even with a small team.

It would be good if you could set a folder or file owner who had specific privileges. Like only the owner can delete team-shared files, and the owner's version trumps version conflicts.

Smart sync is great, but it still has some bugs - especially when new folders are added by other team members.

Dropbox for business has given my company great peace of mind in knowing that the documents and files that are crucial to the operation of our business are safe and secure. Not only safe from internal disaster, but safe from user error.

Pros

I love the fact that Dropbox Business has a "deleted files" feature. When you delete something, it still lives on and is available to restore during those "oh snap what did I do" moments.

Cons

I don't like the fact that Dropbox removed the "right click context menu." I'm not sure the reasoning, but that was a feature I really enjoyed - specifically in navigating through deleted files. I also don't like the fact that it doesn't seem that deleted files are directly searchable any more.
