Most Used/Easily Shared Cloud Storage

Dropbox does what it needs to do and seems to do it well. The upside is that it is very well known and anyone can get a free account to share files with my business. I also like the desktop folder for my mac and the ability to share to my hard drive for files that are in progress and simply keep online (not using hard disk space) when the project is complete.

What do you like best?

- Easy to use - Easy for non-users to set up an account to share files - Computer folder to backup files in progress both to my drive and the cloud

What do you dislike?

- Can take a bit longer than I'd like to upload/download directly to the web version

Why did you end up selecting Dropbox over other applications?

I actually used Copy more frequently than Dropbox until they closed down a year or two ago. Dropbox gets it done and is well known enough that most of the people I work with have an account or know of it.

If so, why did you switch?

Yes, Copy - they stopped doing cloud storage.

What is your main use case with Dropbox?
