Dropbox

I strongly prefer Dropbox over other systems like Carbonite or Google Docs. It is much more user friendly, and functions as a server where all my documents are stored, but that I have access to when I'm offline. Then when I next connect with a wireless network, it sync's everything back up. For a small organization that can't afford it's own IT department but that needs a documents server, Dropbox is the only solution I've found that fits all our needs

Pros

  • Drag and drop feature is extremely user-friendly and it allows you to upload endless files.
  • Ability to organize documents, photos.
  • Easy to share documents with anyone by emailing them the link or simply entering their email when you choose to share the file. You are able to share with multiple people and you could also include a message when sharing the files.

Cons

  • The free version could increase its storage capacity
  • Instead of having individual accounts, it would be good to have shared accounts where there are several people

Dropbox is at the top of its game. There are other competitors, but Dropbox has served me well and has always been a reliable, seamless product that I trust and would highly recommend

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.

Implementation

Based on 2 answers
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

Google Drive and OneDrive are also professional files hosting and sharing cloud space services, and they were being used in our organization, but They have more chance to hacking and losing your files, especially the main and most important files. So in my view, Dropbox is the best one on the market for its security and simplicity.

I can add and add a tin files large files and Dropbox is still working great!

Return on Investment

  • Good security
  • Web-based version
  • I need something for real-time editing, for example, if someone is working with some document, other ones can see and edit it. It would be great.
