Likelihood to Recommend

Dropbox

I would recommend using Dropbox if you need a clean, organized way to store files long-term. I would not recommend it if the person planned to do editing with a group of collaborators. I think Google Drive is much better suited to that. In Dropbox, it feels more like we all have access to the same document, but we can't collaborate in real-time--we need to take turns editing and re-saving.

Tresorit

Good scenario: Wanting to have your files stored by an independent group that specializes in secure file storage. The ability to have files stored on servers that are not domestic is a big plus too. We had issues in the past with a solution that went down when the US AWS East Coast servers had an issue; Tresorit is insulated from these problems and appears to handle load balancing as well. Not good scenario: If you want to have outside parties, upload files/share files with you within your Tresorit environment. There is no way of doing this, and this is a real operational problem.

Pros

Dropbox

  • Dropbox has the ability to automatically sync from other sources. When our Appraisers use their tablets to take pictures, it is set up so that the pictures automatically upload to a folder in Dropbox so that the staff back at the office will then have access to the pictures as well.
  • Dropbox is very easy to use. There is a list of folders on the left-hand side. You simply click and go to each folder to pull up files. You can rename the folders, sort by date, etc.
  • Dropbox has several different options for storage size options. An individual can choose a smaller package or a large corporation could choose bigger packages. There is also a free version that is great for saving pictures from an individual phone or another device.
  • Dropbox has a search feature that saves a lot of time. If you aren't sure where the file you need is, use the search function to quickly find it.
  • Dropbox is cloud based so there are no bulky servers taking up space!

Cons

Dropbox

  • 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.

Tresorit

  • Shared Folders with outside guests, to collaborate with them (collect uploads).
  • Removal of data-cap on file size, and right now, there is one, and it's an issue when storing rich media (such as startup pitch videos, etc.).

Dropbox is a user-friendly, easy tool which requires little to no skill and they offer a free version with a good amount of storage available. There are other file sharing tools available however at a cost. Dropbox free version I have used for years and it serves every purpose I need.

Usability

It’s extremely easy to use on any device. I can set access to whole folders or only certain files. I can print, share, and save with very few clicks. I’m able to save high-resolution photos without taking up a ton of space on my phone and can send a link to those files that are too large to email or text.

Dropbox is really useful, you can access any file from anywhere and you can upload and even edit files online, but, sometimes it can be slow. Downloading, uploading, and syncing is a bit slow, it can take several minutes. Furthermore, the search engine for large amounts of data can be slow too and it is not powerful.

It has not been necessary to go to customer support lately, since everything works perfectly. However, I must add that at the beginning when I started using Dropbox, and I had any doubts about how it worked, customer support was always attentive and found the best solutions effectively.

Exceptionally responsive. This is something we needed from our storage provider. We are continuously accessing the information, and downtime or technical issues would be and are unacceptable. We have had no downtime issues so far, and Support has been responsive to us whenever needed. Exactly what we needed from their service.

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

Dropbox

Dropbox is the most user-friendly when compared to similar software applications. It also seems to have the most functionality built into one program with the exception of maybe ShareFile, however, ShareFile comes at a much higher cost. I am skeptical of the security provided by the likes of Wetransfer. OpenDXM is probably the worst out of the bunch. It typically only works on Internet Explorer and requires a specific version of Java.
Jacob Jeffries | TrustRadius Reviewer

Tresorit

Secure and independently operated. We selected Tresorit for its secure file storage capabilities that the other services (except SpiderOak) did not provide. Tresorit is a zero-knowledge system, which gives us a lot of comforts when it comes to secure data storage. SpiderOak was a close alternative, but they have been in continuous development to provide competitive features, and still haven't provided what we needed (SpiderOak has promised features for several years at this point).

Return on Investment

Dropbox

  • Before Dropbox, we were constantly emailing files back and forth to each other, and didn't have the ability to collaborate on a document without multiple versions floating around. Dropbox makes it easy to send a document, gather corrections, and finalize, which saves us time.
  • Dropbox is simple enough to use, but still with sufficient access control, that I can share specific folders with volunteers, board members, or other partners quickly and easily.

Tresorit

  • Ensures our business is able to remain operational.
  • Provides comfort on data security and compliance.
