  • Safe and easy storage within the cloud.
  • Easy to navigate.
  • Gracious bonuses in adding storage.
  • Shouldn't have to purchase additional options such as "Packrat" Unlimited Undo history while on a paid plan. I'm currently on the Pro Plan. It would make perfect sense to have Packrat as a paid option on the Free account, not on a paid one.
  • Dropbox should consider dropping Tweeting a shout-out as an option for Bonus space. "Hawking" Dropbox services for free storage space just cheapens the user experience, IMHO. The option of "E-mailing a Friend" to sign-up in order to obtain bonus space should suffice.
  • I find Dropbox extremely useful and definitely feel secure in using it in my two-year experience.
  • Monthly plans are highly economical for such a necessary service.
  • Ease of use makes daily operations run much smoother.
  • I appreciate the secure measures taken in third-party file sharing.
If it isn't broke, don't fix it, obviously. I've been very comfortable in my current user experience with Dropbox, so some pretty comparable competition [in price & ease of use] would have to come along to get me to switch, basically. I'm a loyalist by nature, so I tend to stick with something until I'm given fair enough reason not to.
Try it. It works for me and I'm quite certain it would serve you well. You would be hard-pressed to beat the price of the monthly packages, too.

Advanced administrative / operations knowledge-base.
  • Safe/ sufficient storage for the multiple hats I wear.
  • Safe file sharing during events where I'm providing online media coverage.
  • Absolutely no problems accessing my files within my two-year experience. So far, so good.
  • Honestly, I don't have any, but I'd like to look into it. I'm always looking to sharpen my levels of expertise. Thanks for planting the seed.
  • Implemented in-house
No
Change management was minimal
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.

Ok, but not as thorough as on a desktop / laptop, now that you mention it.
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.

  • Synchronizing files across multiple computers and devices
  • Enabling iOS devices to better handle more file types
  • Share files with others
  • Not a good archive backup system
  • Not a substitute for version control
  • Backing up files in realtime
  • Always having access to relevant working files
It has worked consistently and made life easier

Mix of online back up and portable media.

Yes.
Using it as is.
Easy to set up across devices. The browser UI is pretty basic but works well enough.
I wish file transfer was a little faster at times.
  • Airdropper is a web app that allows non-dropbox users to send or receive files from your dropbox account
Easy to set up but really should be part of the product. Results in extra cost.
  • No.
Easy.
No terms, service is subscription based as needed.
