Dropbox Business product overview

What is Dropbox Business?

Dropbox Business is an off-site server for file sharing and storage. It allows users to sync their files online and across devices automatically. Dropbox Business brings files together, in one central place. They’re easy to find and safely synced across all devices, so users can access them anytime, anywhere. Handle files as users would on their desktop with Dropbox. Add, edit, erase and then access them on secure servers from any device (PC, Mac, iPhone, Android & Windows Phone).

Key benefits of using Dropbox Business

  • Edit Dropbox files even when offline; changes automatically sync once the device regains an internet connection.

  • When editing a shared file, everyone gets the update automatically.

  • Automatically back-up photos from the camera roll on a phone or computer. They´ll be saved in date order for users to create albums with and share. 30 days of undo history enables users to restore accidentally deleted files.

  • Share files and photos - even with someone without a Dropbox account.

  • Save any kind of file in Dropbox and sync them across all devices (PC, Mac, Android, iPad, iPhone or Windows Phone).

    Its a very helpful tool. I use when when I work from home and I love when I have all my documents on my MacBook from dropbox- without copying them; they just are there, love it.

    Love the different type of software it has to offer such as storage or the quality of being able to save.

    Very user friendly interface sync is very reliable good retention features. Lan sync and smart sync features are great.

    Cons
    The group and user policy is alittle bit weird to understand and alittle bit confusing. I had to redo the whole access policy twice because it was not working as i wanted.

    To have the file uploaded in the background with limited speeds irrespective of the download or upload speed is something that has irritated me.

    It has some integration that sometimes provides warnings through Excel, but other file types are completely at risk of having conflicting copies.

    Dropbox saved all my precious data when my computer got stollen on vacation.

    Reviewed 21 days ago

    We work using shared folders for all file transfers. Data shares quickly and updates instantly

    Pros

    It works flawlessly. I was travelling Europe with a data plan and in the background Dropbox kept all my files safe. The camper got broken into and bag with computer stollen. Upon my return from my trip, I got a new computer and after an evening of letting it update, everything was restored and in exactly the same places I left them.

    Cons

    Sometimes the updates can slow down internet speeds, but thankfully its easy to pause and resume syncing.

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

    Reviewed 10 days ago

    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.

    Dropbox drops your files and losses documents and your passwods

    Reviewed 2 months ago

    We used Drobox daily since I worked remotely before Covid-19 . There was issues with being able to get in due to the 2 step accountability. We also used Sookasa which duplicated our products. Dropbox tried to take the documents and the pictures from the computer and when you close your account it wants to keep all your objects. This is a form of hostage taking. Some of those forms were designed by me some of the pictures had been sold to clients. None of that should be in anyone else's hands.

    Pros

    It was accessible from anywhere if you could get in.

    Cons

    Dropbox tried to take over all photos and documents on the computer even when denyed.

    Dropbox Business Review

    Reviewed a month ago

    I have been using Dropbox for many years and i still believe it is the market leader in the cloud space. Dropbox has managed to keep up with its competitors because it keeps adding relevant features. However i feel like the company could do better in regards to privacy for example the lack of Zero knowledge encryption.

    Pros

    A reliable storage and syncing facility. Can integrate well with Office 365 and Google workplace. Dropbox can give 2000 gig of files and allows sharing with clients. This is facilitated by powerful features like Smart Sync and Showcase. Dropbox brings your files together in one central place. Dropbox keep on evolving by introducing new features thus remaining competitive in the market.

    Cons

    Dropbox is expensive when you want to upgrade from free to Dropbox plus or other payment plan. If you require storage that comes with office suit you will need to pay more. The company openly admits that it can access data so as to share with third parties. Poor privacy policies.

    If you are looking for the easiest file management software, look NO further!

    Reviewed 2 months ago

    Once again, this is the best. So easy to use. Safe, secure, storage and backup. Allows many to see and share files - with your permission. And gives me complete confidence that the files that are critical to me are safe and easy to access when I need them.

    Pros

    The package of Dropbox I purchased was VERY reasonably priced. The storage capacity online is more than enough. It is also safe, can be expanded, and easy to access. Saving files is done without even thinking! And they even have a "file naming" option that makes life TOO easy! Love this produce since the first day I got.

    Cons

    There are a few times I have had to think about the best set up for my daily file maintenance. But there are great videos on the Internet and once you spend a bit of time watching them and exploring the features, the work is worth it. Also I keep wondering if there are other features I should be using so maybe a "daily" "Did You Know?" feature would be nice to slowly learn new things it can do.
