Dropbox has made my work easier, and more flexible and safe

5.0 2 weeks ago New

Pros:

I love the way it let me work with a file from different places. It makes my work easier and make me save a lot of time

Cons:

I don’t least anything at the moment, it works perfect for me

Fast Syncing - Secure - Safe

4.0 3 weeks ago New

Comments: As a photographer it did not work for me. I think it would be okay for a business that did not need to store a large volume of large files. I did use it for several months and during that time I was able to run my business with success, however I did not find any extra benefits from using Dropbox Business vs other cloud storage.

Pros:

I like the compatibility with other software that I've used for a long time, I like the security aspect, dropbox business allows two factor authentication, single sign on, remote device wipe ( I already had to use that once, so glad I had it ) Long term file recovery is great to have. Syncing files is fast across all devices, it's almost instant. Smart sync saves even more time. I like the ability to organize files and folders in a way that works for me.

Cons:

Large files can be slow on upload or download. I wish the storage space given for the price was larger. It would be nice to have built in editing tools.

Data storage for business

3.0 2 months ago New

Comments: I used Dropbox for my company to store all our documents in one place, to share with our friend.

Pros:

Dropbox has nice features to cover all your documents in same place, but the programme works slow and thats why I stopped using.

Cons:

The dashboard and usability is really slow, you have to wait until it progress inside.

Dropbox has evolved into much more than a simple cloud storage solution for me

5.0 3 months ago

Comments: Dropbox seemed like the perfect tool for collaborative work at my institution because of its fantastic capabilities.

Pros:

As soon as I save a file to a Dropbox folder, the app automatically syncs it to all other computers or devices that share that folder. One of the most obvious benefits of using a cloud storage service like Dropbox is that my files are protected even if my computer is not. Dropbox Paper, which was launched in January 2017, is the company's best collaborative tool. I'm thinking about making a Paper that can be shared with others.

Cons:

A free Dropbox Basic account has limited storage but includes the majority of the features included in paid subscriptions. Dropbox also allows users to delete their Basic accounts. Free accounts expire after 12 months and 90 days of inactivity, and any files in them are deleted. Dropbox's organizational structure isn't very novel.

A very efficient tool for file sharing and storage

5.0 4 weeks ago New

Comments: The overall experience I have with this application is very very good. I greatly welcome the birth of this tool that allows me to store my many files.

Pros:

Dropbox Business for me remains a great tool for centralizing storage, file sharing and access to all the most important files, be it Google Docs, Microsoft Office file or Traditional files. And best of all, you can try this great cloud storage and sharing platform at a fraction of the cost compared to other platforms!

Cons:

While the app is great for sharing documents, large files and perfect for small businesses and works perfectly, however, the app is still in my eyes sometimes slow when it takes time to upload and download files. If it could be just a little bit faster, this application would be formidable and incomparable on the market.
