Best of its class. A must have for team working

5 2 months ago New

Comments: I use it daily and all my work and important documents are there. I've lost several operating system installations and never lost a single file.

Pros:

It is the single best software for file syncing, storing and sharing. I use it in 3 computers and my phone. The fact that I can have everything on the cloud, while keeping only relevant stuff on each device (work, personal, etc) makes it even better. The fact that it has a native client for Linux is also great. At some point, I remember keeping some files on a server to make it easier to send settings to it.

Cons:

I have to nit pick because this services is really great. Some people that don't use dropbox may not find that easier to download files from time to time.

Dropbox Business Review

5 2 months ago New

Comments: My overall experience with Dropbox Business is great. The product is amazing for what it does and it is extremely easy to use even for beginners.

Pros:

The ability to sync files across multiple computer on any platform and the ability to edit files on the fly without having to download the file to the local drive.

Cons:

Syncing files can take quite a long time on a new computer that just had the desktop client installed.

Dropbox Business is a pricey but viable solution for file management and sharing

3 2 months ago

Comments: If you are a small business that has the money to spend, you will appreciate using Dropbox Business – if only for just the integration between your files and others outside your network. It is a very common tool, so it is nice to be able to share with others who are also likely to have and use Dropbox.

Pros:

The integration into your normal Finder window and folders is great. If it were not for this, I am not sure I would use Dropbox Business. Also, the ease of file sharing with team members and outside clients alike is great. It's nice to be able to share a link to a folder and give clients direct access even if they do not have an account.

Cons:

Easily the worst thing about Dropbox Business is the price and the amount of storage. Storage fills up so quickly, especially if you have others who share files with you, that then become a part of your storage allotment. It can make Dropbox a very viable solution to a total hindrance in productivity very quickly. Also, the interface on the web platform is very clunky and not terribly visually pleasing.

Must use storage option for official works.

5 4 months ago

Comments: I mainly use Dropbox for my office work, yo store all the docs in cloud as backup. Dropbox provide me choice to share files with specific user with full privacy option. Uploading is so fast and for larger files , sometimes takes much times.
Besides it provides 3rd party integration which gives us chance to accelarate our work.

Pros:

Most important features Dropbox provides from my perspective is the automatic file backup option. Dropbox takes backup all my documents, helps me to work without fear of losing them. Beside dropbox have world-class security to protect our data.. I can store all my data in cloud and share to official documents for work purpose very easily. Organizations of my documents is very good in Dropbox business. Moreover uploading speed is very fast , I can able to store big files in cloud storage easily and able to track from anywhere.

Cons:

Since we are using Dropbox for organizational work, it's fill like it's little bit expensive than other similar service provider, interface is easy but, sometimes need to know basic program knowledge and web client interface knowledge to get full benefit of Dropbox.

My personal experience using Dropbox

5 3 weeks ago New

Comments: Dropbox is a simple cloud-based capacity administration and an application for various frameworks, makes it conceivable to get to information from numerous stages.
Offering documents to others is straightforward and simple since it permits both outer and inside gatherings to add to an information record that traverses organizations.
Picking which documents to save locally is straightforward and which are just accessible on the web, and it incorporates consistently with our Windows PCs.
Document, picture, and video synchronizing happen naturally, so we don't need to stress over it what Dropbox simplifies it to do this.

Pros:

Dropbox offers includes that will interest both the individual and business client. For business, incorporated devices, for example, Google Docs and Microsoft Word take into account liquid work process and joint effort. Dropbox's choice to coordinate Office 365 and Google Workspace was an astute move, and should give clients certainty that they can flawlessly relocate to the stage. Utilizing Google or Microsoft Office devices with Dropbox is basic. You can make new reports, share them with others and work together progressively, with alters reflected promptly across your group's Dropbox account.

Cons:

Its very well may be more straightforward to switch between them either in the Dropbox OS application or inside the program. Security and authorizations: I've thought that it is hard to oversee consents around stowed away organizers and security ordered progressions. It's not difficult to impart something to somebody to similar consents, however I've encountered occurrences where two individuals (myself included) have various names for a similar envelope yet can't get to one another's documents, without clarification for why the authorizations are unique
