Dropbox

Dropbox is great for those looking for a highly useful cloud storage, especially if those in your organization are dealing with large files that need to be shared. It’s even better if your team has fast computers with plenty of storage so you can utilize sync features. It is not great for anyone looking for cloud storage where you can collaborate since there is no real time editing of documents. In that case, it would require the sync feature have great discipline to ensure everyone has the most recent version of a file.

Pros

  • Very easy to use
No photo available
  • Quality: Dropbox is well made and is a tool I can rely on, knowing it will work. It's both technically well crafted and visually designed well.
  • Speed: whether it's via the desktop app or through their website, Dropbox is always able to upload and download files quickly.
  • Features: for my needs, Dropbox generally has all the features I'm looking for without appearing to be over cluttered with useless features.

Cons

  • So far, none needed
No photo available
  • There are a couple of rare instances where there's a feature which myself and other Dropbox users want but Dropbox has deemed either not needed or not viable. In those cases, it appears there's little we can do to change Dropbox's mind about enabling/adding the feature.
  • Through their website, I don't believe there's an easy way to see which folders are taking up the most space on your account. There have been a couple instances in the past when I needed to know where the majority of my data was being used and it was frustrating to not have that information available.

Dropbox is one of the best tools in its industry, even if it is lacking in certain ways and isn’t the most user friendly. It’s one of the best of what’s abailable.

It's storage, not rocket science. It's easy, as it should be. I don't consider what minor issues I do have as deal-breakers. Just don't interfere with my experience & I'm perfectly OK.

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.

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

Compared to all the file-sharing services I've used, Dropbox is the most reliable and easiest to use. They've also done a nice job of adding features/functionality over the years.Actually, one thing I've yet to mention: Dropbox has done a great job of compatibility with different file types. For instance, I could create a design in Illustrator and share the file with a client through Dropbox. For clients that don't have Illustrator, Dropbox will still allow them to view the design.

  • Due to the nature of the business, it has worked as a solution for file collaboration without the need for expensive hardware.
  • It has eliminated the need to purchase flash drives and the possibility of losing them.
  • It enables and boosts the efficiency of telecommuting.
