Dropbox

Dropbox is well suited for file sharing and file syncing. I highly recommend it to anyone that works from multiple locations or uses multiple peripherals. It may be less appropriate for large-scale collaboration unless you invest in an appropriate package. It may also be less appropriate depending on how secure the files need to be. I have never had any issues with security for my purposes but sensitive documents like medical records may not be suitable without research into the security offered by Dropbox.

Pros

  • Good storage space for free account
  • Fast uploads
  • Very easy to use
No photo available
  • Dropbox retains the ability to roll back a couple generations for a file, this is important if you have an error saving over old files. (This has saved me several times.)
  • Syncing up to Dropbox on a variety of computers makes the workflow clear and simple across laptops and desktops, when I am switching from Mac to PC to test compatibility, I know that the files I need are updated in real time between both synced computers. This also makes working with dropbox easy as your computer sees it more like a hard drive.
  • Dropbox allows for users to be easily turned on and off, so as participants come and go, you can easily manage the accessibility so there is no gaps in protecting your files.
  • Sharing files with our printers, partners, and delivery team is easy as sending a link.

Cons

  • So far, none needed
No photo available
  • Dropbox is not as well streamlined as Google Drives when it comes to collaboration and change-tracking. Currently, there are no tools to deal with conflicting versions of files saved to Dropbox, and its inability to sync from more than one location also complicates file organization.
  • As a freemium service, those in need of larger storage space may find that Dropbox is one of the pricier options, and is not as versatile as its other competitors, like Google Drive and SugarSync
  • Except for the premium Dropbox for Business service, the program is lacking in tech support options, as it only offers assistance through email.
  • Dropbox recently improved its internal monitoring and now offers two-factor authentication, but security may still be an issue for those sharing sensitive files and information.

I don't foresee a time when I will ever completely stop using Dropbox. I have recently switched to iCloud Drive for photo storage and use Google Drive for documents on occasion. But, overall Dropbox remains my most-used storage product.

I have used it for years and I've never had a single technical issue and my account has never been compromised. It is a trusted resource to me.

I needed to stay current in improving my daily operations. Dropbox
was suggested to me by a former colleague two-years ago and I've been using it just fine ever since.

Alternatives Considered

ADrive has been very easy to use, and it's fast

We chose Dropbox because of its ease of use and organization capabilities. The user interface is such that it takes little to no time to train employees on how to use it. We considered Google Drives, and still use it when the project involves simultaneous collaboration, but the simplicity of Dropbox has made it our go-to file sharing software

Return on Investment

  • None, but it has been a good reference for associates to download files remotely
No photo available
  • Companies make large investments in systems that allow them to control information, with Dropbox in their goals are met without the need to invest large amounts of money, unless you seek to expand the service and even then it is not very expensive.
  • It is a free service of up to 2 GB and with the possibility of extending the payment
  • I would recommend the use of this tool since it is a service that offers an excellent option to share and protect information and synchronize it so that it is available on any device.
