Each service has their own advantages and disadvantages. Personally, I use Dropbox and have 15+GB of free storage due to various promotions in the past. I highly doubt I’d even consider any alternate option (USB stick, external hard drive, etc) for important documents.
@Joost – Having dropbox on University computers would make backing up and accessing files a doddle. I’m not too sure of the process behind implementing a University mass install Dropbox software. In relation, have you heard of the Dropbox Spacerace?
I have both a personal for sharing music with the family, and a work account for sending files to clients. I think its one of the best storage/sharing methods out there. Plus with the referral program you can get a ton of extra space.
I can’t imagine not using Dropbox to be honest. I use it every day. Keeping in sync between 2 people with a shared folder and having it everywhere I am on every device I own can’t be matched with any other service/method that I’ve tried before.
Such an incredible service!
I got a free 2 year 50GB dropbox account with my Samsung Galaxy S3 Never used it before but now that I have that 50Gb I use it alot to sync files between my mobile, tablet and desktop pc both at home and at work. I’m now also using it to send and receive large files from customers.
We use Dropbox every day. We are a team of two people plus an external developer, and we use a shared theme folder in dropbox to always work on the same files We also use it to share random files with clients and friends. It’s great to always have everything at your fingertips. There’s also a mobile app for it, so you can just open any file on your iphone or android as well.
Super stuff! Btw, we use the 100GB version (of which we use 30GB) but it depends on what you want to use it for
I absolutely love it! Espicialy their Space Race (we’re 5th). I’m using Dropbox every day for my files for university.
One thing that Dropbox could improve upon, is allow the sharing/syncing of folders outside your Dropbox folder. Right now it only syncs files/folders that are inside the dedicated Dropbox folder, but it would be great if it could also sync other folders. I’m using Sugarsync for this at the moment.
