Overall Satisfaction with Dropbox

I use Dropbox in 3 different ways:

  • First, I use it to securely share documents with clients. My clients are comfortable with Dropbox, and there is mutual trust in the security provided by Dropbox.
  • Second, I use Dropbox as a safety back up for my computer. Nothing fancy, just a copy.
  • Third, I use Dropbox to keep files that I sync across multiple devices with DevonThink. I can pull up a document in a database from my iPhone, my iPad, my MacBook or my iMac because the native document is kept in Dropbox.
  • Security.
  • Security, as in, if I accidentally delete a file, I can retrieve it from Dropbox (thank goodness).
  • Indexing -- files are as easy to find on Dropbox as on my iMac.
  • Syncing with my iMac.
  • The ability to "star" a folder, making it easier to find and use.
  • The website is awkward to use. It is in need of a major upgrade to make it more user-friendly.
  • I wish it were easier to link a document between different folders.
  • Dropbox is expensive for what you get.
  • On the other hand, a folder that was mysteriously deleted from my hard drive was easy to recover using Dropbox.
Apples and oranges. The other products do not function nearly the same as Dropbox.
Dropbox is the best file sharing web service that there is. Google Drive, Microsoft One Drive and Apple Drive are far behind in usability and features.
