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

  • Good storage space for free account
  • Fast uploads
  • Very easy to use
No photo available
  • Dropbox works smoothly across Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms, including mobile devices, to the point that you barely notice you’re using it. Its clean design allows for easy access to and organization of shared files.
  • Dropbox gives users 2 GB of free space, with the possibility of earning up to 16 GB for referrals, while larger companies may find the more spacious, paid options more useful. Dropbox’s premium service, Dropbox for Business, has the added benefit of extra administrative tools, tech support via telephone, and unlimited version history.
  • The service simultaneously stores your data locally and in the cloud, making it a reliable small-scale data backup service. You can also create invitation-only folders for a hassle-free way of sharing documents with a variety of colleagues or clients.
  • It can keep bandwidth usage low by only sharing the revised or added pieces of files. In this way, Dropbox allows for quick file upload, access to file location, and a readily available list of files which have been recently added or changed.

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.

It's less expensive than anything else... not only because it's at a valuable price, but also because everyone is already on it, and everyone already knows how to use it

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.
