Dropbox Business - Secure you valuable data and files with the best.

5.0 7 days ago New

Comments: very satisfied usage experience.

Pros:

One's ability to easily access one's team’s work securely from a computer, mobile device, or any web browser. It also offers a new way to store, share, & track one's work. Dropbox business provides the storage space one need and its ability to share files instantly hassle-free.

Cons:

However, Dropbox's business, unfortunately, fails to provide users with the latest technology for searches. The biggest letdown is the lack of metadata search functionality. Metadata is information about a file, such as a date it was created.

Great product for a Small / Medium Business

4.0 last week New

Comments: Using Dropbox was an initial step into more serious file security. It allowed us to develop a great architecture.

Pros:

This is a great product from a robust and reputable company, that gives us the guarantee the product will keep our data safe. We can have our backup, share our files, perform data recovery, sync it with other deices and can be integrated with zoom, Canva and others. You can always start for free.

Cons:

Even tough they have a free version, they are expensive, coming to $15-$25 per user per month. Another issue is their solution can be very heavy, requiring a lot of space on the disk for file syncing.

Fast Syncing - Secure - Safe

4.0 3 weeks ago New

Comments: As a photographer it did not work for me. I think it would be okay for a business that did not need to store a large volume of large files. I did use it for several months and during that time I was able to run my business with success, however I did not find any extra benefits from using Dropbox Business vs other cloud storage.

Pros:

I like the compatibility with other software that I've used for a long time, I like the security aspect, dropbox business allows two factor authentication, single sign on, remote device wipe ( I already had to use that once, so glad I had it ) Long term file recovery is great to have. Syncing files is fast across all devices, it's almost instant. Smart sync saves even more time. I like the ability to organize files and folders in a way that works for me.

Cons:

Large files can be slow on upload or download. I wish the storage space given for the price was larger. It would be nice to have built in editing tools.

Data storage for business

3.0 2 months ago

Comments: I used Dropbox for my company to store all our documents in one place, to share with our friend.

Pros:

Dropbox has nice features to cover all your documents in same place, but the programme works slow and thats why I stopped using.

Cons:

The dashboard and usability is really slow, you have to wait until it progress inside.

Dropbox has evolved into much more than a simple cloud storage solution for me

5.0 3 months ago

Comments: Dropbox seemed like the perfect tool for collaborative work at my institution because of its fantastic capabilities.

Pros:

As soon as I save a file to a Dropbox folder, the app automatically syncs it to all other computers or devices that share that folder. One of the most obvious benefits of using a cloud storage service like Dropbox is that my files are protected even if my computer is not. Dropbox Paper, which was launched in January 2017, is the company's best collaborative tool. I'm thinking about making a Paper that can be shared with others.

Cons:

A free Dropbox Basic account has limited storage but includes the majority of the features included in paid subscriptions. Dropbox also allows users to delete their Basic accounts. Free accounts expire after 12 months and 90 days of inactivity, and any files in them are deleted. Dropbox's organizational structure isn't very novel.
