Overall Satisfaction with Box

All students in our university are provided with the facility to use Box. Students are encouraged to store their research material and other stuff on it since it's easily accessible and has unlimited storage.
  • Unlimited storage
  • Easy synchronization of files to your computer
  • The interface is pretty straight forward and anyone can use it easily.
  • The files are stored properly and can be shared very easily for collaboration between users.
  • There is a file size limitation on box. If a particular file exceeds a given size, box wont be able to sync the file from your computer on to their cloud server.
  • The interface should provide the facility to do selective syncing of files from the computer.
  • Unlimited storage
  • Easy to use interface
  • It has helped me better organize my data.
  • Being able to regularly store files on the server has removed the need to create external backups.
  • The file size limitation needs to be addressed.
The only reason I selected Box was that I got unlimited storage and the interface was relatively easier to use.

Box is well suited for syncing any type of files stored on your computer. It is good for creating backups for your data which can be accessed anywhere. The software has apps for the pc and mobile phones which lets you access files on the go. The only issue is that there is a file size limitation and the software won't let you sync your files from the computer if they exceed a size set by the software.
