Amazon Cloud Drive

Amazon Cloud Drive is a fantastic backup solution for storing your digital files on the web, but if you want to manage, tweak, organize or otherwise maintain those files after they have reached the cloud, the experience immediately begins to suffer. This is especially noted when major competitor products like Microsoft and Dropbox offer similar services at similar prices, but offer far better interfaces for file management.

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

  • Fast synced data across all of your devices – Desktops, Tablets and Phones.
  • Unlimited Cloud Storage space for all of your important media, files and documents from a reputable company.
  • Extremely helpful and friendly technical support staff who goes above and beyond when you need their help – even if the issue was a user's fault.
  • Seamless integration for your digital files. Plays very well with other popular services.

  • Dropbox offers quick cloud storage that’s easy to share particular files and folders.
  • It is reasonably priced given the amount of storage you get.
  • It shows revisions and new versions of documents and files so you’re able to stay up to date on the newest version of anything within an organization.

Cons

  • They recently did some kind of update that changed it from Amazon Cloud Drive to Amazon Photos, which made things a bit confusing. Still unsure sometimes where to go or what app to open.
  • I wouldn't mind more robust functionality in terms of pausing uploads or seeing which individual files are uploaded and potentially duplicates of files that have already been uploaded.

  • When using Excel within the app on the iPhone it can be cumbersome trying to navigate different tabs. There could be possible room for improvement with office integration.
  • Sometimes I have issues with sharing files from within the folders when using the integrated computer application. Usually I can work this by logging in on the web and initializing the share from there.
  • I wish there was a way to get it to auto-sync whenever you are connected to wi-fi without having to open the app on the iPhone.

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.

It’s easy to use at all levels. Doesn’t take any training or special skill. A couple quirks make it less simple than I’d like but overall it’s simple.

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

Actually I think both Box and Dropbox are easier to use and have better features for sharing files, especially if you need password security on those files, but Amazon is better for storing tons of data. Box and Dropbox are much more expensive to store a lot of files.

You can use Dropbox to simply drag and drop files and everything synchronizes and it allows for easy sharing. pCloud is not a well-known company, still pretty new. I'm sure it's pretty secure however I've only used it a few times. There is also Google Drive which has more storage available and also offers a feature where you could speak into and it writes our the text. Dropbox does have some improvements to make however it's free for about 2gb storage and I am able to get by with the free version as opposed to other alternatives.

  • Dropbox has significantly contributed to our efficiency. As most of the team works remotely, Dropbox has helped us to shorten project timelines and has increased feedback on project development.
  • Dropbox has also been a boon to our file organization. The free introductory 2 GB of space allowed us to streamline projects at no cost, and when we needed to scale up, it was simple to do.
