Dropbox Review

Dropbox Review

Dropbox is basically online storage not computer backup. It doesnt allow you to automatically backup your computer or files or copy your existing file structure onto your online storage. You have to drag files into a set folder on your desktop to store them. This is good for the odd file but for your pc backup soltution we are not convinced. But they do, do online storage well. Its simple and fast.

Features:

Dropbox method is keep things simple so they do lack features with other online backup / cloud storage providers give you. You can share files and folders which you have dragged into your dropbox, thats it really for features. Dropbox do have an iPad and iPhone app though which can be classed as features.

Summary:

With Dropbox all your files are perfectly safe and accessible through an online Dropbox account. Any files can be handled right from a mobile phone in the event a person is away from his computer. Dropbox is an ingenious way to keep your files online. Files from any computer or mobile phone can be accessed. All of these files are combined from multiple devices into one drop box which is available from any one of the devices as well as the Dropbox website. It conveniently works with any operating system or smart phone capability. These files can also be easily shared with friends, family or colleagues through a link or access to one's public folder.

Product Ideology:

Dropbox eliminates many of the annoyances of doing business online. A computer crash is as simple as fifteen minutes of restoring files to another computer from a Dropbox account. A project begun on the office computer can be completed at home without having to e-mail files. Bandwidth limits can be manually set with Dropbox so connection can be maintained without depleting it from others using it.

Security:

A valid concern with a system like Dropbox is security. With AES-256 bit encryption, the security available for Dropbox is similar to that of a bank. All files are completely private and can only be accessed by others if a link or file is intentionally shared by the owner.

Storage Space:

A basic Dropbox account is free and offers 2 GB of storage. If more storage is desired, a small monthly fee will purchase up to 100 GB for personal use or more than 1 TB for businesses with large combined quotas.

Ease Of Use:

Files can be easily added to a drop box, shared with anyone and updated. Updates are made to all devices and only on the information changed not the whole file. Even if something is accidentally deleted, Dropbox keeps a one month history of all files so it can be restored quickly.

Customer Support:

We found Dropbox support to be very FAQ driven more than human by phone or email. While the dropbox system is very user-friendly, Dropbox has tried to keep FAQs simple also. Users can access help by phone, forums and online ticket submissions if they need to contact Dropbox customer support.

not for important stuff

I think the company puts alot of emphasis on getting friends to join which gives more space and that is great, but then they dont instruct the friend not to store stuff in shared drives with you. also if the friend deletes the document from the shared drive, it syncs that with your computer and you lose it. there is no way to get it back

Unreliable company. Takes away what it gave you.

I got the free version of Dropbox which started with 7.5 gb. I built it up to 13.75 gb by getting people to sign up to it over the years. This last week, they brought my account back to 7.5 gb (I have 8.4 gb of documents in it), eliminating all the gb I had earned. Now, they say that I don't have enough space and to buy the business version. I find this dishonest and disgusting. I told them that I would give them a negative feedback wherever I could

Dragon dropping his fire

efficient tool, very impressive, but support services are weak.

Best Cloud Storage

I have a free TB at OneDrive and still found the price and convenience of DropBox to be worth paying for another 1 TB. A couple years ago when I was just a 2 GB free user, I had many questions and received quick responses and accurate answers to my questions. I use DropBox as just another folder in my notebooks and iPhone. Anything I save there is on all three devices instantly. Take another accurate look at 1 TB prices and you will see that DropBox is far less expensive than the others.
