Dropbox review - gHacks Tech News

Dropbox review

When Microsoft, Apple, Amazon and Google started to enter the cloud hosting and synchronization market I was not sure if smaller players in the market were able to survive in the long run. Now that some time has passed it is fair to say that some even thrived thanks to the new competition. Dropbox for instance announced that it broke the 100 million user mark just recently which would have been a big milestone for every player in the niche.

So what is Dropbox? It is a file hosting service at its core that combines online storage with the ability to synchronize the data to your devices. You can install Dropbox on your PC, Mac or Linux system, and also use one of the company's mobile clients to have access to the data on the go.

Whenever you install Dropbox on a device, a root folder is created on it that contains all the data that you want synced. You get a say in the matter though, for instance by preventing that data gets synchronized with a particular device.

The data that you synchronize is not only available on the devices you have Dropbox installed on, but also on the Internet. You can sign in on the Dropbox website at any time using your account credentials to access the cloud hosted data there. That's handy if you are using a third party device to connect to the Internet.

The clients support a feature called Lan Sync which you can use to synchronize data in a local area network between two systems. While you still need Internet access as well on all systems, LAN sync speeds up the syncing of data between computers significantly by transferring files locally instead of remotely.

There are a couple of other things that Dropbox lets you do. The service keeps track of a file history automatically, so that you can access revisions of files when the need arises. For that you need to go to the Dropbox website, sign in to your account, select the file and click on More > Previous versions giving you options to restore a previous version of a document or file.dropbox web

Files and documents can be shared with Dropbox and non-Dropbox users. You can share links with anyone, which effectively makes the file publicly accessible. What this means is that anyone with the link can download it. More secure than that is the ability to share files and folders with other Dropbox users. This is excellent for collaboration for example and obviously also for security purposes as only invited users can access the contents that you have shared.

Dropbox offers a free account for all users that provides you with 2 Gigabyte of online storage that you can increase to 18 Gigabyte by referring other users to the service. Pro and Team accounts are available at a cost that provide you with extra space starting at $9.99 per month.

Dropbox tips and tricks

We have published several guides and how to articles in the past that help you get the most out of Dropbox. Here is a selection of the best ones:

  • Dropbox Two-step verification - To improve the security of your account, I suggest you enable two-step verification which basically adds a second verification layer to the account. To sign in to Dropbox, you not only need your username and password once set up, but also a verification code that is send to your mobile phone.
  • Thunderbird Dropbox integration - Use Dropbox as a file link provider in the Thunderbird email client. You can move attachments to cloud storage which offers several benefits including faster email download times and the option to change or remove files whenever you want.
  • Dropbox Automator - A third party service that can automatically process select files you upload. You can for instance use it to upload pictures to Facebook or Flickr, convert documents to PDF, or upload them to Google Docs.

Verdict

It is the combination of features that make Dropbox popular. From the game-like referral system to add storage space to your Dropbox account to support for all major desktop and mobile platforms (with the exception of Windows Phone), it all adds up without changing the ease of use of the solution.

There are still things that can be improved though, like the ability to sync data that is not stored in the Dropbox folder (there are ways around that though) or Lan syncing that does not require Internet.

      Currently I am using dropbox too. Thank you for the code.

    2. Philipp said on December 8, 2012 at 11:15 am

      3gb extra would be nice. i use dropbox.com and box.net. both are good services.

    3. Raluk said on December 8, 2012 at 11:16 am

      I have a Dropbox account, and I would love to increase my space a little.

      Also, Dropbox does not currenty encrypt the files on their servers. Therefore I use a Truecrypt container for the really sensitive documents. If you do it, don’t make it to big (mine is just a few MB), because if you change one file inside of it, the whole container has to be uploaded and synced again!

    4. 0d3 said on December 8, 2012 at 11:20 am

      I use Dropbox. It works nicely across all of my devices and computers.

    5. aston said on December 8, 2012 at 11:20 am

      i want try to get code

    6. hoang lan said on December 8, 2012 at 11:21 am

      Dropbox is best online file storage service.

    7. DComedian said on December 8, 2012 at 11:21 am

      I currently use SkyDrive for mass storage that doesn’t need frequent updating, Google Drive and Cubby for files that are changed more regularly.

    8. Larry Winckles said on December 8, 2012 at 11:22 am

      I can’t function without Dropbox!

    9. vi said on December 8, 2012 at 11:24 am

      started using it some time back, besides sharing files with colleagues and clients, having internal IP messenger’s log in my home PC is the key. We often share codes over LAN over IPMSG, and without any intervention on my end, its available on my HomePC and Laptop for future reference :)

    10. Cathy said on December 8, 2012 at 11:25 am

      Love my dropox

    11. mohammad said on December 8, 2012 at 11:26 am

      im using all of them, but my favorite is sugarsync because of its ability to sync any folder of your choice. :)

    12. Gormachine said on December 8, 2012 at 11:30 am

      Use both DropBox and Google Drive. Google drives integration with Google Docs in Google Chrome across multiplatform sync are unbeatable in everyday-tasks. But DropBox’s speed and reliability are way better! Best of both world would be fantastic!

    13. Selva said on December 8, 2012 at 11:30 am

      I am currently using dropbox free account. Reason – simple, elegant, unobstructed, lite on system and network, enables system automation using ifttt.com and wapwolf , abd allow me to share files music etc across devices.

    14. John said on December 8, 2012 at 11:30 am

      I use Dropbox and sometimes SkyDrive. I’ll definitely use Dropbox more if I get that 3 GB.

    15. Tomas said on December 8, 2012 at 11:33 am

      I use dropbox for all kind of files and Skydrive with new Office 2013

    16. Lew said on December 8, 2012 at 11:34 am

      I use DB now as it is easy.

    17. tyler78 said on December 8, 2012 at 11:36 am

      I’m using dropbox too. I’d love to get extra 3 gb.

    18. Ace said on December 8, 2012 at 11:38 am

      I have been using Dropbox for a long time, and really couldn’t imagine everyday work without it. My account is linked between four computers, two smartphones, one tablet, and all working flawlessly.

    19. Wasabi said on December 8, 2012 at 11:39 am

      I also use dropbox.Tipically to send big files to client and sync all my device like phone, computer and tablet. I have also tried used like cdn website but the bandwidth is not great for this solution.

    20. István said on December 8, 2012 at 11:39 am

      Definitely Dropbox is the best online syncing solution!

    21. lello siddi said on December 8, 2012 at 11:40 am

      Dear Martin,
      After the rules, I have today read my first review. It looks like I missed the other giveaweays. That’s a pity, but it was a tough working week!
      Anyway… Starting now.
      I have been using dropbox since many years. I truly recognise the help that it can do. My important stuff is currently in dropbox backuped.
      Therefore, three additional GB should really be great!
      Many thanx and ich wünsche Dir ein schönes Wochenende…
      ;)
      Lello.

    22. Nitesh said on December 8, 2012 at 11:40 am

      I have been using Google Drive for file hosting. Have heard a lot about dropbox.

    23. Nikhil Tom said on December 8, 2012 at 11:40 am

      Though I heard many reviews about dropbox, I never actually tried it,
      My way of backing up to the cloud is emailing myself with data as attachment,
      It would be a nice opportunity to start a dropbox account with extra space,
      Thanks for the giveaway

    24. sam said on December 8, 2012 at 11:41 am

      Really nice and must have tool for any one.. can earn more space through referrals.(upto 16GB max)

    25. joao henriques said on December 8, 2012 at 11:42 am

      Hi Martin,

      Currently using 3 services, although the main one is dropbox. The others are google drive and box (well i have 25GB from vodafone also but the interface is almost unusable).

      Dropbox is used to sync main working documents and stuff that i want immediate acess to like articles that i’m reading or working on, photos, manuals, firefox profiles across computers, shared software, stuff like that. Also for sharing things with friends which, with the introduction dropbox links, got incredibly easier.

      Google Drive is mainly for a passive box of software and other large stuff that i don’t need immediate acess to but nevertheless.. recently gdrive had a very good improvement, the ability to attach any size to gmail via ggogle drive, whiih is great.

      Not using box much yet, uploaded a few thing and that’s it.

      Thanks for your excellent work here. Hoping to have one of your promos:

      João

    26. Ernestas said on December 8, 2012 at 11:44 am

      Currently, I use Dropbox for my personal files and Ubuntu One for backups (because it is supported by Deja Dup).

      1. Ernestas said on December 8, 2012 at 11:45 am

        Oh, and I love it, because Dropbox is easy to access anywhere, supports undeleting files, while Ubuntu One is basically supported by Deja Dup and that’s why I like it.

    27. BOB said on December 8, 2012 at 11:45 am

      Sweet, extra 3 gigs would nice :)

    28. chodorowicz said on December 8, 2012 at 11:51 am

      Using Dropbox, but also testing Cubby – it’s ability to synchronize only local files (skipping cloud altogether) is really interesting

    29. Ghost said on December 8, 2012 at 11:52 am

      I am using dropbox.Because very speed upload and download.

      Thanks For campaign.

    30. Harish Kumar said on December 8, 2012 at 11:53 am

      I use dropbox every day for syncing my frequently modifiable files from different machines. Dropbox is very much important for me else i have to waste a whole lot of time copying these files to a usb or uploading to cloud and then doing manual syncing on other machine. Being a google user, google drive is also another cloud drive which i have to use every day. The google docs, gmail integration are one greatest assets of it.

    31. Alex said on December 8, 2012 at 11:54 am

      I love Dropbox but Skydrive has a 25 GB free storage for cheap asses like me. I still use Dropbox to autosave photos whenever I take a photo with my smartphone.

    32. Harminder said on December 8, 2012 at 11:56 am

      I am using skydrive. Just because am using windows and the 25gb thing.

    33. Dave Upen said on December 8, 2012 at 11:56 am

      The feature that appeals to me most is the two-step verification. I would love to have it.

    34. DD said on December 8, 2012 at 11:59 am

      I am using Dropbox, Skydrive, and Google Drive. The first is by far my favourite, but I use the other 2 because I have high storage capacity due to being a legacy user. Would love to move more of my files to the one provider.

    35. yinon said on December 8, 2012 at 11:59 am

      I use Dropbox together with Windows built-in MKLINK to create hard links to other folders.
      That way i can sync any folder on my pc without copying it’s content to My Dropbox folder :)

    36. hakim said on December 8, 2012 at 12:00 pm

      I use it for accessing files from mobile. And to be less dependent on Google, FB, Microsoft and Twitter.

    37. Alex C. said on December 8, 2012 at 12:00 pm

      I’m using dropbox because it’s simple!

    38. kuhan said on December 8, 2012 at 12:05 pm

      I use both Dropbox and Ubuntuone. Ubuntu one mostly because of the 5GB free space. Both are great. However for sharing folders with others I prefer to use Dropbox , as I find most people already have a Dropbox account rather than an Ubuntu One’s.

    39. Mateus said on December 8, 2012 at 12:06 pm

      I use Dropbox, because it’s easy to use, quick and works across devices. Also as a student it is the best way sharing documents with others.

    40. Julia said on December 8, 2012 at 12:09 pm

      Hi Martin,

      I’m using Cubby because it offers P2P-syncing. Using Dropbox too but get often stuck because of missing storage capacity. Would be super to get some more space….

    41. cman said on December 8, 2012 at 12:16 pm

      I use Dropbox. Because it excels in simplicity and usability.
      All other services are to be compared to Dropbox.
      I use Dropbox because it works every time.
      I also have a ‘few’ other services like it, but for dependability,
      I count on Dropbox. Thanks.

    42. pijus said on December 8, 2012 at 12:17 pm

      I’m cool with dropbox, so +3gb would be nice bonus :)

    43. spb said on December 8, 2012 at 12:17 pm

      Hi Martin, I use Dropbox exclusively and it’s been really useful so far. For the university I can download the slides at home or write my exercise sheets in my computer and then, when I’m on the lecture, I can follow the revision on my cellphone. Through your articles I actually have been able to learn more about this excellent service (such as their various bonuses policies) and right now I just learned about the version control capabilities which is just perfect for me since I’m currently developing some code that I want to keep to myself for now (so no free GitHub or alike). I would love to have a bit of extra space since the more I use Dropbox, the more I want to keep all my files in there!

    44. Ngoc said on December 8, 2012 at 12:22 pm

      3GB for me.

    45. Nita said on December 8, 2012 at 12:30 pm

      I am using dropbox to backup from linux boxes. It would be great to have more space for these backups. Thankx. =)

    46. TheFrenchCanadian said on December 8, 2012 at 12:42 pm

      Currently I am using ASUS Web Storage because it gives 32 GB free until 2015 with the purchase of my new PC

    47. kwiat said on December 8, 2012 at 12:42 pm

      I’ve tied to dropbox it’s suits me in everytingh so i’ll not change it for anything else

    48. Luis G. Uribe C. said on December 8, 2012 at 12:44 pm

      . I have not so high speed Internet :-( so I try some of them: SkyDrive in several incarnations, but no, no… (when will be the next new look come? Don’t fool the customer!).

      . Google Drive integrates well with Google Docs, mobile pictures and so on, but I hate annoying messages on my PC telling me that it was unable to upload file_X, what must be done? *Keep it silent, please!*

      . DropBox’s performance is amazing in my low speed Internet connection. They must use Rsync, I guess: If you change some files inside a big ZIP, they upload a few bytes only, to sync the file. Very convenient if you work inside DropBox folder. Also, mobile access is very convenient. And DropBox does NOT interfere with other sources of Internet access. Tell me how they do it!

      . Increasing storage by 3 Gigabyte would be great! Thanks a lot for your giveaways.

      Luis G. Uribe C.

    49. Tarun Sharma said on December 8, 2012 at 12:44 pm

      I am currently using Google Drive and Dropbox because both are pretty awesome and integrate very well to my needs.

    50. Fahim Ahmed said on December 8, 2012 at 12:47 pm

      I started off with dropbox – mainly because of cross platform file syncing and also be able to transfer files to mobile devices without getting a USB cable to connect! In time, Google drive and Skydrive have also achieved cross platform – but dropbox is still my primary, second would be Google drive. I still keep dropbox as primary, as I can keep specific shared folders with certain people e.g one folder for colleagues, another for girlfriend etc. Would love some free space on my dropbox! Merrry Xmas! :)

    54. Ivan said on December 8, 2012 at 12:53 pm

      I use dropbox, box and skydrive. Though dropbox gets the most use. Skydrive I only use because I got grandfathered account with 25 GB of space.

    55. Roberto said on December 8, 2012 at 1:00 pm

      Wow, this is a great giveaway. I use dropbox because i travel with my laptop a couple of times per week.

      With dropbox i can have my job files in the cloud.

      Great service.

    56. gent said on December 8, 2012 at 1:20 pm

      I currently mostly use Dropbox, but I used to use Syncplicity for syncing work docs before.

      I’m a Dropbox user. The additional space would be magnificent! :)

    60. Boris R. said on December 8, 2012 at 1:27 pm

      Dropbox is great although some extra space would be nice. That’s why I’m using Sky Drive too which integrates well with Windows 8.
      I’d like to commend your site, useful and interesting articles. Keep rocking :)

    61. uhz said on December 8, 2012 at 1:30 pm

      I use a little of dropbox, google drive, skydrive, box and sometimes others.

    62. Evrard said on December 8, 2012 at 1:35 pm

      Dropbox is from far the easiest way to sync data between 2 devices. It is also the most compatible with other softwares, and last but not least, it is not related to any big companies like google, apple and microsoft.

      Only drawback: no encryption at user level.

    63. Jack said on December 8, 2012 at 1:38 pm

      I am using Dropbox now, and would like more space.

      Thanks

    64. Grr said on December 8, 2012 at 1:39 pm

      Thanks a lot Martin.

      I have been a free dropbox user for past 3 years, and have never looked anywhere else.

      Hope to win one of the code to increase my free space. Please count me in.

      thanks,

      I am currently using Dropbox because it offers the most user friendly and fast file hosting services, if not the best already. I would be glad to get a code to increase my storage further. Thanks.

    67. Pit said on December 8, 2012 at 1:53 pm

      Definitely Dropbox is the best !

    68. Nebulus said on December 8, 2012 at 1:55 pm

      I am currently not using any of online storage solutions :). I have a basic Dropbox account (2GB), but I didn’t played with it too much. I want to backup a few gigabytes of personal photos and movies online, so 3 GB would be a nice addition to my account. Thanks!

    69. Matias said on December 8, 2012 at 1:56 pm

      I just have the minimum available, so 3GB would help a lot!

    70. rajkumar said on December 8, 2012 at 2:04 pm

      I love dropbox because i love its simplicity.
      Simpler is better.

    71. Bogdan said on December 8, 2012 at 2:05 pm

      Really superb service and product.

    73. Ray said on December 8, 2012 at 2:09 pm

      Just recently started using dropbox with Windows 7. Could be a big part of bringing my overall backup strategy into the 21st century (finally!).

      Nice giveaway. I and looking for those kind people who are kind enough to give me such extra spaces. Dropbox you are the best.

    77. walang_sangit said on December 8, 2012 at 2:14 pm

      I currently use three different services, dropbox, googledrive and SkyDrive, it was because I wanted to save my file in the cloud as much as possible, so I do not worry if there is a problem in the file on my computer and usb flasdisk

    78. rti activist said on December 8, 2012 at 2:15 pm

      I will be thankful to you if you consider me for extra 3gb space in dropbox.

    79. Geekatori said on December 8, 2012 at 2:16 pm

      Thanks for thé code.
      I’m using Dropbox basycally because it’s the easier one to use / install / configure on my computers (Linux, Mac OS and Windows)

    80. ajay kumar said on December 8, 2012 at 2:17 pm

      Thanks in advance if i got selected for extra 3gb space of dropbox.

    81. Dev said on December 8, 2012 at 2:22 pm

      I mainly use Dropbox, but also testing Skydrive.

    82. Rodalpho said on December 8, 2012 at 2:22 pm

      I use and love Dropbox!

    83. faircot said on December 8, 2012 at 2:23 pm

      I currently use the free version of Dropbox for transferring the odd file between my PCs and SugarSync (paid) for a full backup of data and docs etc. I prefer a paid solution; rightly or wrongly I have more faith in the integrity of the product!

      I’d like to increase the use of Dropbox (particularly transferring via a LAN connection) and the extra features and capacity of the paid version would be very useful.

    84. Daniel Smith said on December 8, 2012 at 2:26 pm

      I currently use Dropbox for a variety of things – mirrors for my projects hosted on my site, GameSave management, eBook syncronisation, sharing files with family, etc. 3GB would really help with this, as I’m currently nearing my limit.

    85. Chris said on December 8, 2012 at 2:28 pm

      I have been using Dropbox for a while now but I also have a skydrive account. Skydrive is nice but it’s not as easy to share files as Dropbox.

    86. vikas said on December 8, 2012 at 2:33 pm

      Nice giveaway. Nice opportunity for dropbox users to grab 3GB space.

    87. raj_sir said on December 8, 2012 at 2:36 pm

      I have been using Dropbox for a while now but now I have Idrive account which is offering 10 GB space for signup.
      Craze, popularity, status and simplicity of dropbox is far ahead of all sync services. I will continue to expand my dropbox space if you gift me 3GB space.

    88. ashok_hisar said on December 8, 2012 at 2:38 pm

      Good and nice give away before Christmas.
      Thanks on behalf of those who will be getting 3GB extra dropbox space.

    89. ajaychahal said on December 8, 2012 at 2:40 pm

      I am not a subscriber of dropbox, have uninstalled the service. But if you give me 3gb space, i will be again a subscriber of dropbox.

    90. wisse Teil said on December 8, 2012 at 2:43 pm

      Nice functional cloud service. I am using the free version and could use some extra space.

    91. Artur said on December 8, 2012 at 2:43 pm

      I use dropbox for not very important data. For confidential data i use only Spideroak. It will be appreciated to win extra space on dropbox so count me in please.

    92. Thomas said on December 8, 2012 at 2:48 pm

      I use dropbox and skydrive, altough only dropbox actively
      Count me in for additional storage

    93. Gouri said on December 8, 2012 at 2:56 pm

      That’s not true. Dropbox is the only online file hosting service I know of, that uploads changed files partially.
      In Truecrypt go to Settings -> Preferences and uncheck ‘Preserve modification timestamp of file containers’

      That’s the main reason I use Dropbox instead of other services. Would love to win the 3GB of extra space :)

      I’ve been using Dropbox now for 3y or so, had a Pro plan up until a year ago, found better use of the money. Sure hope I’m the lucky 1… :)

      Big fan of Dropbox and enjoy reading your reviews. I have tried SugarSync and Skydrive, but keep coming back to Dropbox as it is the most reliable. Runs quietly in the background and just get’s the job done. Thanks for reviewing such a great product

      Dropbox free is my go to service but would love the extra space!

      I am using dropbox because of its simple-and-easy-to-use nature, but I am also using spideroak for stuff I want to have more control over :)

      I resisted Drop Box for a long time and finally got on board to transfer updates to my accounting program between home and office.

      Fabulous.

      My favorite thing right now is to keep a shopping list in DB and then when I go to the store I ALWAYS have it with me, on my phone. Love it.

    114. Daniel said on December 8, 2012 at 3:35 pm

      I currently use Dropbox, have been using it for 2 years now, and the features I like the most is to share directories between users and to share files or directories by an open url.

    118. Xin said on December 8, 2012 at 3:39 pm

      I am working full-time and studying part time. I use Dropbox for my personal stuff and school stuff. Very easy to use. My only grip is that we start off with the least amount of storage space hence been finding legit ways to increase the limit instead of using mock email accounts.

      Also, I use Skydrive to backup other misc less important stuff and lastly Google Drive to backup my work stuff.

      1. Paul Underdown said on December 8, 2012 at 4:56 pm

        Xin,
        Dropbox offers 500mb upgrade(up to 16gb I believe) as a referral bonus for each friend that joins when you invite them to join Dropbox. It has netted me a few extra gigs of storage.
        See the Dropbox site for details.

      I have the premium account for Dropbox. I really like it, and use it to file my articles and websites that I refer back to. Clearly is an app that really adds to the usefulness of Dropbox. And the additional benefit of Automator really speeds up the filing of the articles to make it easy to find later.
      I do have accounts for all of the other cloud storage a, but use Dropbox the most.

      Dropbox free.. A bit disappointed that my friends discovered it before me (I usually find out new tech things first) so I referred them.
      But, oh what at journey it has been, starting from sharing photos, low size fun games what I can share with my less experienced friend (I just say – click on link and game/photos will magically appear in your pc).
      Anyway, I’m using now it from private matters, shared items (easy to upload and share) and a stuff for work too.. And now the time has come that I’m starting to run out of space.. Anyway, fingers crossed.

    140. Aaron said on December 8, 2012 at 4:37 pm

    141. Joanne said on December 8, 2012 at 4:37 pm

    142. Edson said on December 8, 2012 at 4:38 pm

      Sign me up for one of these codes, sir! (:

      Currently, I use DropBox because it’s one of few programmes that my computer at work can run without needing the supervision of the IT department to install nor to upgrade.

      All others face that unsurmountable barrier that is calling the IT and being walked through a supervised install. (skydrive, google drive, sugarsync etc)

      Plus, it’s complete, feature-wise.

    151. Stephan Hodges said on December 8, 2012 at 4:49 pm

      I use Google Drive, Microsoft’s Skydrive, and Dropbox. Dropbox is the best of the three for me because: “It just works” and passes the “grandma test”, IMO.
      It has the most reliable download/upload of all three. I spend several months a year in Northern India (live in US) and I’ve used it to transfer a 5.7 GB (yes Gigabyte) file from the US to here over lines that just stop and start 10-20 times a day, with power outages common, etc. It took 3 days, but it worked flawlessly, without needing to do anything.
      If you want to upload photos and send a link to that folder, it makes one of the cleanest “just works” photo album pages I’ve seen.

      Great program. And, I have 18.5 GB (free). I’ve always wondered why everyone says only “18GB”.

      (I would use the 3GB link/code to give to another person in a non-profit organization who could really use it).

    152. Jacky said on December 8, 2012 at 4:51 pm

      I am a long term user of Dropbox for years! But currently on my system I am having GOogle Drive, Skydrive and also 4Sync on my ladtop.

      Been using Dropbox for some time but 2gb was not enough to include my music so put music in free UbuntuOne 5gb (as i use linux) which also works well so to be able to just use Dropbox would be great.

    155. JohnMWhite said on December 8, 2012 at 4:55 pm

      I’m using Dropbox for my primary cloud storage, and have been since I came across it right here (or maybe it was back on Download Squad, I can’t quite remember). I love its simplicity and ease of use, it is very easy to set up and just leave to run. Security is a concern but there are ways to deal with that, which is another good thing about the system – Dropbox hasn’t put any barriers in my way to stop me using it the way I want to.

    156. D-Addicto said on December 8, 2012 at 4:55 pm

      I love the ergonomic features of Dropbox, the desktop client works really well when using different systems, and that is why I love Dropbox. It makes hosting an entire set of source code possible, and it also allows me and my fellow developers to exchange the code easily, so we all have the same copy in realtime! :)

    161. M said on December 8, 2012 at 5:02 pm

    162. funix said on December 8, 2012 at 5:06 pm

      I use Dropbox to sync between multiple devices (including phone). I chose it because it is available for all my platforms, easy to use and you get a good amount of space.

    163. k19s said on December 8, 2012 at 5:07 pm

    166. Ron said on December 8, 2012 at 5:11 pm

      I use Dropbox, skydrive and google drive for various tasks. Mostly, I us Dropbox to show clients mock ups of websites I’m creating for them. I’d like to use it to store photos as well but am currently a bit limited by space ;)

      Skydrive has gotten better with their recent local client and google drive is awesome or sending gigantic attachments with it via email but I’ve got a soft spot for Dropbox.

    167. ED said on December 8, 2012 at 5:12 pm

      I have a Dropbox account but rarely use it. I prefer to use Filezilla & AndFTP to move files between devices & my domain account. Sure it’s manual, but it’s CHEAP & gives me FAR MORE data allowance than these monthly paid services. Dropbox’s monthly fee alone costs more than my entire webhost fee, the lattere which gives me unlimited email accounts, website(s) hosting & 100x more data. The only thing that’s missing for me is better phone to domain calendar syncing as my domain has not Android app to use/sync with. For that I still very reluctantly use Google but sync that up to my domain calendar.

    168. nostrono said on December 8, 2012 at 5:12 pm

      Very happy with both dropbox ans sugarsync. Got some promotions with them and now have 10 gigs at each for free! I am also enjoying sugarsync integration with nexus 7!

      Well, I probably just reduced my odds considerably by sharing this on G+, but I really enjoy my daily Ghacks newsletter and wanted others to as well.

      Thanks for all your hard work Martin!

    175. Bobby Roughton said on December 8, 2012 at 5:27 pm

      I currently use Google Drive and Dropbox. I could use 3gb extra space. Thank you

    176. Rupert said on December 8, 2012 at 5:31 pm

      I use dropbox and jungledisk – although jungledisk is for backup really as the file sharing doesn’t work that well…

      I think one improvement dropbox could make would be around shared drives between users and permissions, but guess they’ll save that stuff for the pro accounts. Also ‘LAN sync’ floods corporate networks – they really need to do something about the amount of data it leaks all over the place!

      Could definitely do with an extra 3gb of space anyway; crossing my fingers I win :)

    181. Teiji said on December 8, 2012 at 5:43 pm

      I’ve been using Dropbox for about a year now. A couple of weeks ago, when I upgraded to Windows 8, I also tried out their Skydrive. It was a horrible experience compare to Dropbox (ie. stuck at “Pending changes” and no Pause Sync feature).

      At first, it syncs fine, but then when I add a new folder with only a 2.5 MB Excel file, it’ll get stuck at the dreadful “Pending changes” forever. Needless to say, I uninstall it and stick with Dropbox.

    182. Martin said on December 8, 2012 at 5:45 pm

      I have skydrive with its much larger free capacity. I would find dropbox more useful with a larger capacity – and 3 GB is a nice increase.

      Please count me in!

    183. Arale Ever said on December 8, 2012 at 5:51 pm

      Hi, I’m currently using a couple of cloud storage as my data backup solution, like Dropbox, Kingsoft Kuaipan and 360Yunpan etc. but Dropbox has always been my favorite solution, as it is the originator of the others, and it has always kept unique and fellowless, so I desired for a code to increase my Dropbox space that I can keep enjoying this gem, thank you very much!

    184. Mark said on December 8, 2012 at 5:53 pm

      I can use it on my entire platform

    186. Daniel Malcom said on December 8, 2012 at 5:58 pm

      I use Dropbox because of the automatic syncing (outside of Android) and the ability to upload and download files of any size. The other services have limits. I also appreciate their “nerdiness” so to speak with the Dropquest games each year and respect for the people who use their software.

    187. Alan Lau said on December 8, 2012 at 6:00 pm

      I’m currently using SugarSync due to the fact that company firewall is blocking dropbox. I do hope one day I can return back to Dropbox. Do give me a chance to win additional 3Gb then.

      Dropbox has been one of those rare technologies that ‘just works’. I’m continually impressed at the solutions it provides in all sorts of different scenarios.

      That being said, I’m increasingly worried about the balance between Dropbox’s convenience and accessibility vs. security.

      Martin, do you have any insights with regards to security issues surrounding Dropbox?

      Providing one uses unique and strong passwords, is there any technical reasons (outside of general paranoia!) not to trust Dropbox with sensitive data?

      Would you have any hesitate in storing a KeePass database on Dropbox?

      I notice in one of the screenshots you’re using Boxcryptor. Do you consider this a integral part of Dropbox security?

      For what it’s worth, everyone can do a basic security audit by going into settings -> security to inventory all devices, web sessions, and applications that have access to your dropbox. Further, there’s an event log that will help verify all access. If needed, you have the tools here to revoke any unwarranted access.

      And would definitely appreciate another 3GB of storage!

      I’m using Dropbox on multiple machines. It’s just great!

    197. rob young said on December 8, 2012 at 6:26 pm

      3gb extra would be nice. i currently use dropbox, box.com, and cubby

    198. Seth said on December 8, 2012 at 6:33 pm

      Dropbox is one of my must have apps on my phone. It backs up my photos, and lets me have access to everything I might need anywhere I have internet. At school, my study groups use it to share notes and recordings from class.

    199. avi said on December 8, 2012 at 6:34 pm

      I currently use Skydrive & Dropbox (2 giga). Would love to get the extra 3 gigas :)

    200. Digital Ruse said on December 8, 2012 at 6:35 pm

      I tried all the others, but DropBox is still my favorite. 3 extra GBs would be awesome. I store tons up there.

    201. Avraham said on December 8, 2012 at 6:36 pm

      I currently use dropbox and google drive. I have been using live mesh and aeroFS because of p2p sync, would be great if dropbox supported that also

    202. Derek said on December 8, 2012 at 6:43 pm

      I’ve used dropbox for many years. I’ve tried a few others (Skydrive, Amazon Cloud Drive, Google Drive), but I keep coming back to Dropbox for all of my cloud storage needs. It works on every system I have (Android, iOS, Mac, PC) and there aren’t any restrictions on how deep the folder structure is (like with Skydrive).

    203. Peter said on December 8, 2012 at 6:45 pm

      I don’t have a dropbox account, nor do I currently use file hosting. Although, as a writer, I wouldn’t mind putting it all up there for ease of access while traveling.

      I use Dropbox daily and Mediafire only when I need some specific files. Good review!

    206. Karl said on December 8, 2012 at 7:05 pm

      I use Dropbox because it automatically syncs photos I take on my smartphone. I also use a plugin for WordPress that sends backups to Dropbox

    207. brian said on December 8, 2012 at 7:06 pm

      i’m using dropbox currently for a number of reasons. their IOS app rocks on both the ipad and the iphone and the automatic photo syncinc, and automatic photo uploading from my PC are all deal clinchers for me.

    208. Skykid said on December 8, 2012 at 7:11 pm

      Dropbox is the most popular one even if I am conserned about its privacy policy. The workaround is using encryption.

    209. BadLuckLuke said on December 8, 2012 at 7:24 pm

      Currently using Ubuntu One for backups but 3 giga extra for Dropbox would be cool!!!

    210. Brian Wenger said on December 8, 2012 at 7:26 pm

      I have used Dropbox, SugarSync, and Box. I prefer Dropbox so that I can use it on Linux and my phone much easier than the other services. Speeds are excellent and sharing files is extremely easy.

    211. George T said on December 8, 2012 at 7:34 pm

      I mostly use Dropbox across multiple PCs and Android devices, works like a charm, especially the automatic picture upload feature. I use Box.net for work and transferring large files mostly, and Google Drive for just Google docs files.

    212. Zonk said on December 8, 2012 at 7:42 pm

      I signed up to Dropbox via reference link from my friend.
      She needed to upgrade her storage space and asked for a favor.
      I have found the service useful so I started to use it :)

    226. Paul(us) said on December 8, 2012 at 8:26 pm

      Currently I use box.com (not so pleased with) and Microsoft Skydrive. I think I want the Dropbox to give a go because I think That they goth more possibility’s and what I have read about them there a quit stable.

    231. Peter said on December 8, 2012 at 9:03 pm

      Hi,

      I’m currently already using DropBox to sync all my content amongst my different PC’s ànd my iPad. I’m even syncing small portable apps. That way I only have to update my app in one place whatever computer I’m sitting at (home or work – desktop or laptop) and it’s up-to-date on all my machines.
      I use it because it simply just works! So 3GB of extra space would be nice.

      I’m also using box.com where I have 50GB (a nice giveaway amount I got because I logged in with my iPad). I use that one specifically as a backup for my photos and ebooks.

      Regards,
      Peter

      I have been using dropbox for a while and it is a fantastic tool to keep in sync files from my work computer and my personal computer. An update of 3Gb would be nice.
      Thanks.

    236. Ross said on December 8, 2012 at 9:33 pm

      I use Dropbox. It is simple to understand and use. And simple to create URLs to a file. I have also tried Box.com – it has some better features but also some limiting factors and complexity.

      Amazes me how many commentors come out of the woodwork when something is going free.

      Either which way, I won’t bother with the blurb about how much I use dropbox. I’ve got plenty of space as it is, thanks for the giveaway Martin, even if it does attract vultures. :-)

      I use Dropbox to back-up my stuff (it saved me once when working abroad and my laptop died).

    242. Steven Abeyta said on December 8, 2012 at 9:50 pm

      If a cloud was in the shape of a box, it’d be Dropbox. With comfort, ease and security I find it a fresh breath of air dropping my stuff into Dropbox. To me, whatever comes out next and whoever are the current competitors, nothing is as good as Dropbox. There’s no reshaping or manipulating what already works right out of the box. From the use, the feel, the look, everything is made simple, simply for its users. Thank you. :)

    243. rob said on December 8, 2012 at 10:01 pm

      i use the free versions of dropbox, cubby, and box sync – you never know which one will change terms or disappear. free space is always nice though.

      Using primarily dropbox due to it simplicity and ease of use. Also use google drive occasionally.

    247. Shea Bunge said on December 8, 2012 at 10:41 pm

      I’ve tried many file syncing/cloud storage services – Box, SkyDrive, SugarSync, Cubby, Google Drive, CX, Ubuntu One – but the one I keep coming back to is Dropbox.

      Probably the biggest advantage (for me) that Dropbox has over the others is that a portable client is available. As I can’t install Dropbox at school, DropboxPortableAHK, is invaluable to me for syncing files directly from my USB stick or portable media.

      I keep all of my schoolwork and assignments in Dropbox. If I lose my USB, or it suddenly fails, my important files are safe in the cloud. When handing in assignments or homework, I just send my teachers the download link. This also means that I can send the link early and continue working on the assignment before it is downloaded.

      Besides that, I just really love how Dropbox looks and feels. The upload/download is really fast and efficient. In fact, I love Dropbox so much that I made a video about it for a school project. I also love the idea of “Public Folders” and the referral program.

      One feature that I think is missing from Dropbox is the ability to synchronize folders outside of the Dropbox folder.

      1. Dave said on December 9, 2012 at 4:10 am

        DropboxPortableAHK looks awesome thanks for the tip.

        I usually use symbolic links to solve your last point, but it would be awesome if something was built into Dropbox for that.

      Currently needing to use both Dropbox Free and Skydrive due to lack of storage size with both. This comes at a great time as I’ll be having a very large amount of pictures needed to be uploaded, synched, and shared of our new grand-baby due at any moment.

      The extra from this giveaway sure would help simplify things!

      I use Dropbox. I still find it the most polished cloud drive. It was one of the first (if not they first) and they keep adding awesome features. Mobile app is polished, and automatically uploading pictures is nice. I always create symbolic links and link them to files in my dropbox to sync settings.

      Thanks

    278. BenRogersWPG said on December 9, 2012 at 4:23 am

      Hi Martin!

      I absolutely love Dropbox. I use it every single day, so much so that I’m starting to run low on space, which is why this giveaway is awesome! Either way, I use it to sync my blog website backups, my Android app setting backups, my Firefox profile backups and my own documents on my computer. This way, I have a full suite of apps and programs in case my computer or phone goes missing, or breaks. One of my favorite Dropbox features is the recovery of deleted items. Last week, I was about to share a photo on Instagram, but instead of clicking the share button, I hit the delete button. I was devastated, until I remembered that I could recover the photo. I quickly jumped on my awesome Android App and managed to get the file back!. I also use Dropbox in unison with the Android app, DropSync to keep the two-way syncing possible on Android. All in all, Dropbox is one of my most-used web solutions.

      Thanks again.
      Ben

    283. Whisker said on December 9, 2012 at 5:00 am

      I use Dropbox as my main online backup and sync solution. In addition to that I also use SugarSync, SkyDrive and Bitcasa, Bitcasa for “mass storage”.

      The reason why I use SugarSync is that it has the ability to backup any folder in the file system and the initial amount of free storage given is greater than that of Dropbox. Those are some of the pros but there are many cons of it compared to Dropbox. Dropbox however is still my preferred online backup solution. As I’ve experienced the Dropbox has the least learning curve for the users who are new to online backup and sync. So comparatively it’s very easy to use.

      Every solution has their own outstanding features. So it’s up to the user to get the one which suits best to his/her need. For me it seems like I need all of those features. :-)

      I use dropbox for lots of things, from syncing files between machines to using it as a git central for me to push my commits to dropbox and sync across the machines. I would appreciate if i got a little space more.

      Aside from dropbox, i tried several other file syncing solutions before but none of the syncing solution is as smooth and easy to set up like dropbox. Currently am using bitcasa sync for it’s infinite storage but it’s a little slow compared to dropbox.

      I currently use dropbox.
      I find It useful for sharing images with friends and family.
      My introduction to dropbox was through a linux packager who
      had asked for testers. Dropbox was already installed on my distro
      so I signed on with gmail and there I was testing packages
      for a complete KDE upgrade.

      Currently i am using dropbox because its mulltiplatform support , great upload download speed.

    304. jelson said on December 9, 2012 at 8:11 am

      Acutally using Dropbox. Definitely could use another 3GB. Thanks for the opportunity!

    305. Mee said on December 9, 2012 at 8:19 am

      I used to use dropbox alot more often to sync my Firefox and firefox appdata between computers. Now that I don’t switch between computers as much it’s just a way to get data to my phone easily.

      At work i have an ownCloud setup for people to share files so we don’t have to pay for dropbox.

    306. joe rahall said on December 9, 2012 at 1:24 am

      I have been using dropbox for 3 months now. I have found that it meets all my needs.
      I would love to increase my space by 3 G.
      I have used HostGator for over a year and have had a great experience.
      I used GoDaddy byt experience was horrible.

      Please award me the free storage.

      Joe

    307. Wani said on December 9, 2012 at 8:36 am

      Iuse dropbox for work, as I work remotely all the time, i always have access to uptodate spreadsheets from work, whenever I choose. i dont let it update automatically, as it used my limited data, so i just update whenever i log on to do some work. I have also shared photos with other people this way adn find it great. And cos Iam in the country, and limited to oh so costly Telstra data, and extra 3 gig would be a miracle :)

    308. Ankur Gupta said on December 9, 2012 at 8:40 am

      I use dropbox and media fire. Please giv me code to increase my dropbox size.

    309. MozillaMan said on December 9, 2012 at 10:33 am

      Sorry I’m late. Hopefully this will count. I’m in love with desktop syncing these days! I’ve tried Box and SkyDrive, but none compare to Dropbox! I use it for all my photography, syncing music between my phones and tablets, and of course… storing all my documents on the go! I’m also a huge fan of the way Dropbox lets you know when you’re approaching your limit and asks you to save space. This is a must have for students too, because you can submit a dropbox file link as your submission to your instructor at the due date, but continue working on the files until the instructor marks it! Great for last-minute changes if you ask me!

      Thanks!

      Currently been using Dropbox for a few years now. It does pretty much everything I need it to and I’ve never had any problems with it.

    312. Nikunj said on December 9, 2012 at 12:28 pm

      I currently use Dropbox and would love to get an extra 3 GB.
      Thanks for the giveaway.

    313. san said on December 9, 2012 at 1:01 pm

      have been using Dropbox everyday for a long time, I’ve also tried most of cloud services available, nothing like dropbox, never disappointed!

    314. Sparx said on December 9, 2012 at 1:44 pm

      One of the few services that allows for two-factor authentication, Dropbox is quite convenient. Just wish its syncing capabilities on Android also included the ability to mirror whole folders.

      A number of apps also use its API so using it as a cloud backup service for things like SMS or even complete backups is a cinch with a plethora of Android apps available that integrate well.

      And one last plus point about Dropbox – I just love attempting the annual Scavenger Hunt – a real brain scrambler.

    315. Ademas Z3MN said on December 9, 2012 at 1:48 pm

      Hi Martin!

      I’m currently using Dropbox as my primary cloud solution beside SkyDrive.
      3 GB extra is really great! Count me in, Martin! :)

    316. Arnab said on December 9, 2012 at 2:16 pm

      Dropbox is definitely the best cloud storage service that’s currently available. It is easy to use, easily accessible and secure. I would definitely like to get few extra GBs added to my account. Thanks for this great giveaway.
      As of now I mainly use Dropbox and Box for cloud storage.

    317. Raymond Koppen said on December 9, 2012 at 2:53 pm

      would love to have the extra space as I have been using this since the beginning

    320. Akhila said on December 9, 2012 at 4:21 pm

      I’m using Dropbox since getdropbox.com. I use Dropbox primarily and use other services like Cubby, Mediafire, Spideroak, Google drive, Box, Skydrive etc. Dropbox is my main file hosting for couple of reasons (other than just hosting),
      1. Dropbox “Public folder” which is unique (to my knowledge compared to other popular services) and can be put to use by several different ways.
      2. I earned Drobox’s extra 18Gbs recently using referral links for a long time and this makes my cloud big (not as large as some but it’s in the upper middle).
      Extra space was always useful.

    321. Jani Kinnunen said on December 9, 2012 at 5:18 pm

      I’m already using Dropbox, but I only have 3,1 GB of space available. Since I often share very large files, the extra 3GB would be very welcome.

    322. Tblogger said on December 9, 2012 at 5:49 pm

      Dropbox Is the Best among all other Cloud hosting services , And i am Already Using It , but my current storage space is Full , so i don’t use it anymore, just i have stored some of my files there to download in future .

      | have used dropbox for ages and always recommend it to people as it is gerat for keeping a backup of important files. It is also very useful when transferring too a new pc, or updating the OS. I store roboform, firefox and chrome data there too so all are synchonised across the pcs and laptops I use. It also enables ne to look at important files or give presentations on my ipad without needing to have the data loaded there.

    324. Michael said on December 9, 2012 at 6:44 pm

      I’m using Dropbox but have also tried out Box (as I got extra space with the phone app or something). The downside with Box is the file size limit of 100Mb per file. Dropbox is definitely the one for me

    325. Dai said on December 9, 2012 at 6:48 pm

      Please, count in. Thanks for giveaway

    326. memberjoe said on December 9, 2012 at 7:13 pm

      I use Dropbox and Cubby. The Dropbox was the first (or almost) in the market. The Cubby is a hungarian innovation and this program use some very promising solution (for example directsync).

    327. ramooonas said on December 9, 2012 at 7:20 pm

      Dropbox is used to sync main 3D projects documents and other stuff that i want to share with other

    328. Shane said on December 9, 2012 at 7:31 pm

      I use Dropbox mainly because I like it more compared to Cubby, Sugarsync and Box. I use it for backing up my uni files.

    329. Mircea said on December 9, 2012 at 7:38 pm

      I use Dropbox that allows me to sync my data between multiple device.

    333. Raghav said on December 9, 2012 at 9:58 pm

      I use Dropbox becuse of its robustness and efficiency. I use it daily in my Office work, so that whenever i have time i want to continue the programming work at home where i stopped the same. So far its very good to me and have no problems Adding to that, I also use the versioning functionality at dropbox whenever its required.

    334. Punisher said on December 9, 2012 at 10:31 pm

      For me, Dropbox is the best choice. Never had a problem. 3 extra gigs would be very nice!

      Dropbox is good cloud storage. Thanks for a contest.

    337. Frank said on December 9, 2012 at 11:30 pm

      I use SpiderOak because unlike DropBox they don’t have a secret backdoor to your data.

      If I win DropBox 3GB I will throw it into the bin and won’t use it.

    338. nick said on December 9, 2012 at 5:26 pm

      I’m a dropbox user and i really like their service. SImple and easy. Currently, I just use dropbox and haven’t got the time to try using the other file hosting mentioned here.

    341. Nick said on December 10, 2012 at 2:43 am

      currently I am using Dropbox everyday for business files.

      I use another service from Baidu, called pan.baidu.com
      It offers 15g free space I was able to get 100g from one of its giveaway.
      One of the good thing is it offers remote download, just put a download link and it downloads the file to the space.

      But overall, dropbox is the best!

      I use Dropbox, SugarSync and Google Drive on My workstations. Also using several cloud storages: Mediafire, Rapidgator, etc.

      Dropbox is nice and simple to use, but that 2 Gbit storage size on free account, is awfull. SugarSync has 5 Gbit already, when you join there…

    346. lorca said on December 10, 2012 at 5:17 am

      I use only Dropbox and my main uses are:

      Portable apps across multiple devices

      Loading torrent files from mobile app (uTorrent load folder set to a Dropbox folder)

      An Inbox for file organization before a final testing place on the server.

    363. Q said on December 10, 2012 at 5:31 pm

      I currently use SugarSync to share files because that is the file sharing service that others that are to access the files are familiar with.

    364. Nabil said on December 10, 2012 at 5:33 pm

      I am using Box (among others) because it gives 50 GB free (offer for iOS device owners i think), moreover Box let me decide wich directory I want to sync with my PC.
      In the other hand its windows application is very limited in comparison with dropbox.

    365. milander said on December 10, 2012 at 5:53 pm

      Though other offer more capacity I have been with Dropbox the longest so it’s “home” for me. It’s works great across all my platforms too. The only bummer for me is it’s hard to get more space. I’ve installed it on family computers but don’t get the referral bump because they detect I have an account on the box. Grrr … Still good stuff and better with each Android app that lets me backup to it! Thanks for the offer!
