Pros

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.

Pros

Love it, love it love it. As a small business, it has al of the tools we need to run and operate our business.
My overall experience with Google Workspace has been great. There are so many useful tools within it and it is perfect for a business owner.
A really great place to work out of, ease of use is 10/10, and just really a workplace's best friend.

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.

Cons

For example, inserting code into a google doc is sometimes ugly and extremely inconvenient. I imagine there are other similar specialized use cases that should be added.
We did run into occasional glitches and bugs, especially where access permissions are concerned, which can be a problem.
At times when files are imported from external apps such as Microsoft 360 for example there are loss of formatting and data types which is inconvenient.

Secure storage, but not great for sharing

Pros

The product was easy to use and felt secure. However, it did not integrate well with a lot of things I was already using such as gmail, Google workspace, etc.

Cons

It was harder to share files and links than with Google workspace storage and Google drive.

Dropbox Business Used To Be THE Go To Cloud Storage, Now Google Workspace Is A Better Alternative

Reviewed 2 years ago

I ended up switching from Dropbox Business to Google Workspace. I found it much better value with way more features, and also most of my clients would now prefer to share files via Google Drive instead of Dropbox.

Pros

It is simple and easy to use, has a nice layout and UI experience, and great for storing and backing up files. It allowed me to completely replace external USB drives. It is easy to share files.

Cons

I don't like that there aren't any storage options between the free 2GB plan and the paid 2TB Plus plan. Most users require something in-between, and every other cloud storage company offers more flexible (and affordable) plans. There are also way less features than Google Workspace.

I am a nurse and administrator in our small organization. I am also the IT administrator of our organization and most of the time I have little to no idea how to run things. Dropbox Business has made it incredibly easy to store and share our important files.

There are programs that are better integrated with other software such as Google Workspace and Microsoft products. DropBox integrates acceptably with other programs but it could be better.

Pretty straightforward document management. A leader in it's category.

Reviewed 2 years ago

Great if you only need document management, but it falls behind Google Workspace and Microsoft365 when it comes to integration with Office and other tools. That said, you get more space for document management and it's easier to have shared folders than the other two. Determine which is your priority when deciding which to go with.

Pros

It keeps things organized and is simple to pick up and use. It also easily allows you to share access and control who can view and comment on files. It does the basics very well.

Cons

I've had some trouble with integrations. First, I can't save Zoom recordings to a shared folder, only a private one, which means I have to manually move these files each time so that others can view them. Second, the Word for the web integration doesn't sync with Word for OneDrive, so I am forced to use one or the other. Documents also often have trouble opening documents in word for the web.

My personal experience using Dropbox

Reviewed 2 years ago

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

Dropbox is MORE than just a repository

Reviewed 5 years ago

I've been using Dropbox for years both personally and for all of my clients. And with Box coming in as competition, among many others, Dropbox has really upped their user experience and features game.

Pros

I love Dropbox - I no longer have to house my files on my computer, so in the event of any catastrophe, they are there in that wonderous cloud! But it's not just me. I work with 15 other people, and Dropbox also becomes a collaborative workspace, like Google Docs, but with a much friendlier user experience.

Cons

Nothing comes to mind. I think it's important for teams using Dropbox to really nail down naming conventions for files so that it limits the irritation factor of hunting for a file amongst hundreds. Their search feature is awesome, but still - NAMING CONVENTIONS ARE QUEEN! :)

A must-have for our digital agency

Reviewed 3 years ago

Dropbox is a critical tool for our business, and it helps us save time and hassle with clients when collecting assets and feedback.

Pros

We can set up a new Dropbox folder for a client in seconds and share it with them to make collecting assets a no-brainer. I do love that you can now create a Google Doc from within Dropbox, and that Dropbox has released their own document tool (Paper). It's easy to control access and permissions and it's a widely used and understood tool.

Cons

We find Google Workspace most useful for us because of its various features, and because it's part of our suite with business email, so for me the only negative about Dropbox is that it's a separate fee... which of course is logical and unavoidable since it's a different company. I just hate paying for 2 storage options, but Dropbox is a must-have.

Our company had been using DropBox for years and when we started to need a solution for file sharing, our first idea was to use our internal drives on our office computers. But we soon realize how challenging it is for people to locate files and navigate shared drives. Aside from that, we need to give access to multiple users who are not employees(who needed to access some of por files for business development purposes) and don't have access to the company’s network. This software DropBox Business provided us a solution not limited to just sharing files, but also its a big help for organizing and backing-up our important financial documents, and business partners’ related files without worrying about losing the local data from our office computers.

Pros

-Absolutely easy to work with team members and colleague remotely with the collaborating tools -Offers a user friendly interface and efficient workspace -Great file sharing and management features

Cons

-Limitation of users to be on “admin” level”. If you can add more than one admin, that would be great. -People outside the organization who are still a part of business activities and processes are having a hard time with accessing files that they need for their role in our company. Example( external QA and Consultants) -If you can add the integration feature with google documents will be a very big help

A key piece to our remote workspace collaboration success.

Reviewed 5 years ago

These days with so many remote workspace freelancers collaborating on a project, dropbox allows for sharing and access securely, and that is super helpful to the work team process.

Pros

It allows me to securely manage, share and access my files, relative to a project and its content from anywhere.

Cons

Can be a challenge to upload a new user to it to join in the collaboration process.

Best file sharing software

Reviewed 5 years ago

Dropbox business is a perfect workspace that helps you organize and store any documents. So, the software can increase your daily productivity. It can be used for personal and work purposes.

Pros

This is a file sharing software designed for business enterprise. It assists teams to stay organized while keeping their tasks flowing. The software is perfect for any business owner who intends to ease the utilization of online storage. It comes with a user-friendly interface and allows you to share files to other people, lets users protect their documents with passcodes, and manage document’s permission. I love Dropbox's essential features such as Add to my Dropbox. This feature allows you to access the shared files without downloading them. You need to send them to your Dropbox account with just one click, irrespective of the size. Additionally, it features a great synchronizing feature known as Smart Sync that lets you use one account on several devices.

Cons

While using Dropbox, you can't pause an uploading file on the web page. Before the applications are accessible, file uploading can be stressful. An Internet interruption to the computer will make the process to start again.

Dropbox Business for Non-Profit

Reviewed 3 years ago

Overall Dropbox Business was solid for us for several years and only made less sense as the Cloud Storage field developed further and more options became available.

Pros

Dropbox is a solid cloud storage solution that covers most of its bases well. We used it for several years to back up files, as well as make them available easily and remotely without having to worry about storing all the data on local storage servers and making it available for remote employees.

Cons

Dropbox was still lacking in accessibility features to make it easy to use for visually impaired employees. It was usable in most areas, however several areas were problematic for our screen readers users. Most notably the ability to share folders from File Explorer was problematic when the interface to choose who to share with when choosing a user wasn't easily navigated with a screen reader. Most of the time it was impossible. Collaboration features compared to Google Drive were lagging behind. As well as the pricing even with their non-profit discount, especially after they changed their tiers was also not as good as Google Workspace. This lead us to migrating away from Dropbox to Google Drive.

Clever and dependable cloud storage

Pros

Easily share workspace files and folders, update and keep everyone in the loop on the team. Easy and quick to install on any device. Customer support is helpful and knowledgeable.

Cons

Unable to link more than 1 dropbox account at a time on one computer unless paying for a business subscription. I work for 5 different companies so I have to download one on the desktop and then log in and out of the other companies using a web browser.

Lots of options and easy to use

Reviewed 5 years ago

We use G Suite to comminicate via email, documents, spreadsheets, photos in dropbox, etc. It solves a lot of our business needs and it is one of our go-to's in our software toolbox.

Pros

I like that G Suite inclides everything I need for business and personal productivity - email, drive, dropbox, chat, etc.

Cons

I'm not sure of the security of the software and if all of my data is private and safe, or owned by Google.

My Business-Management Suite

Reviewed 5 years ago

Excellent - pricing is great, support is great, I've also used the features for managing other users when I was the MD in a company, works a charm.

Pros

G Suite contains most of the digital communication and office tools you will need to start a new business or set out as a freelancer - Email, online storage, chat, online document editing, etc. The collaboration features are the most impressive, they easily allow multiple people to work on the one file. Useful for work, personal life and college.

Cons

Dropbox has a few amazing features that Drive doesn't, such as Smart Sync. Dropbox has Office 365 Online which has better formatting and editing tools than Drive's apps.

Servers and PST management to Cloud in one easy step

Reviewed 5 years ago

This software has its reliability and scalability for AAA uptime and quality. It makes a medium size business scale really well and a small business work flow really efficient. The added apps of drive and g suite services are available if your not already using Dropbox or other cliund solutions.

Pros

This suite had the email backbone to support our own domain and user management was ultra simple. When new employees came into the company. Cloud workspace and email setup was done on seconds not hours or days. It provided the simplest on boarding infrastructure but also reliability because unless Google goes down you have bigger problems.

Cons

It's still linked to Gmail calanders which sometimes would be good to sync a little better with Apple users native systems. But the overall management system keeps it Microsoft and apple friendly although not 100% for every application.
