Gina Carroll, Office and Accounts Manager
I find it very easy to use, really happy with Dropbox. It is an easy way to share files across our company, where most of our staff are on the road, so to have access to all the files they need is paramount. No more paper folders!

Saves the PTA

Verified Reviewer  15th of September

Amy Beyer, Marketing Systems Support Coordinator at Drees Homes
As the PTA Secretary Dropbox allows me to easily share files with the other members., Hard copy files used to get so messy, but with the filing structure that we can create here and sharing functionality it helps keep everything organized and easy to find.

Pros: Every PTA member has access to our files from anywhere. We can connect our personal accounts to the team account and instantly pull up, add, edit, and delete files.

Cons: If two people are editing the same doc the last person that saves gets their edits to save permanently (the other person's gets overwritten). The FREE storage amount is a not a lot.

I think Dropbox is great if you're just using it for documents that have a small file size. It's also great to store and share files. Very easy to use and navigate.

Efficient

Verified Reviewer  12th of September

Jimmy Gagné, Idéateur et directeur chez Studio C1C4 et Éditions Panda
I use Dropbox to work and in my personal life. Its integration into various system makes it THE reference for cloud storage. Excellent for photos, but also any paper work

Pros: Integration with various media makes it a very powerful tool.

Cons: With more shares, people, and file names changes, synchronization of names is not being done. We must warn people that the name has changed and it created several inconsistencies with time, and disorienting when running hundreds of clients.

I highly recommend it. That said, take the time to compare, to ensure that it meets your expectations. I feel that Google Drive has not the synchronisation folder names problem folder names.

Dropbox has been extremely helpful in helping me stay connected with school and family. I used Dropbox with my other classmates to help share notes, documents and other important information. During law school this was amazing. I also use Dropbox with my family. It has really helped keep in touch. We upload new photos of the family all the time. It really is great!

Pros: Ease of use and value for the money for sure!

Cons: I don't have any complaints about Dropbox at all!

Reliable Cloud Storage

Verified Reviewer  31st of August

Content Marketing Manager (Information Technology and Services company, 11-50 employees)
I've used the software for school, work, and personal documents for quite some time (5+ years). It's reliable and I haven't ever had any issues accessing documents. I've found it helpful when wanting to share documents with a group or share documents with myself across computers (Mac, PC, iPhone).

Pros: It's nice to be able to view the photos on any computer, phone, or tablet.

Cons: The free storage is limited, but the fees they charge seem to be reasonable compared to other services.

Esy to use app for safely storing docs

Verified Reviewer  30th of August

Recruiting Coordinator (Computer Software company, 1001-5000 employees)
I use Dropbox to store documents that I may need to access but may not have my computer with me. I have used it for personal, school and work use. I really like how easy it is to be able to logon from anywhere and save or open past document.

Pros: I like how easy it is to use Dropbox. It a nice clean product with everything you need to store docs.

Cons: I do not see any cons with the product this far. My only concern is uploading photos. I would trust that Dropbox could securely store them but will wait and see until I actually need to.
