    "Solid program, great functionality, easy to use"

    November 9, 2009  |   By atom1cs

    Version: Dropbox 0.6.402 beta

    Pros

    Love this program! Doesn't take up a lot of memory, works exactly as intended, absolutely 0 bugs, no issues whatsoever. Use the client on multiple computers (work and home) to sync files you choose, or via a slick web browser interface.

    Cons

    None really, I just wish the space we got for free was a little bit bigger (more than 2GB).

    Summary

    I was looking for a program such as this one for a long time. This program is great, it automatically drops a folder in your "My Documents" folder (or wherever you choose), and whatever you put there, sync's with their secure servers. I primarily use this to sync files/folders that I use at home and at work, I can access the files from anywhere. They also have a very nice web interface that you can access through a browser.. I uploaded some files from a friend's house, and I didn't have to install the client. I just popped open the web browser and placed my files there, then when I got home they were already in my "My DropBox" folder! Great program if you need to sync files/folders across multiple computers or from various locations.

    "Awkward software construction"

    June 6, 2009  |   By Ego Kinch

    Version: Dropbox 0.6.402 beta

    Pros

    +Great service
    +Smart utilization of email server space

    Cons

    -Not user friendly
    -Unclear file syncing "direction"
    -"How can I suddenly be missing 4 paragraphs?"

    Summary

    The style app is a must for anyone who works on the same project at multiple stations. Someone had on their thinking pants when they put email servers to work transferring file information between computers.

    I might be missing sheer patience, but I found myself having to hunt down missing paragraphs after an errant sync. Surely it was my error somehow, but I shouldn't have to worry about files accidentally reverting to a less complete version.

    Even if I'm slow picking up on the online storage interface, I certainly want to be sure my save is saving to a nonsyncing place on my harddrive and not subject to accidental deletion. I want to be sure the program does not interfere with background file operations, but Dropbox seems to occupy files, causing a "file in use" error when you rearrange your file organization.

    "Lacking security"

    April 26, 2009  |   By dzwager

    Version: Dropbox 0.6.402 beta

    Pros

    Very easy to use. It's what Microsoft Groove failed to do in terms of ease of use.

    Cons

    Folders can be shared with unauthorized people, so security is definitely an issue! They should set up an Admin for each shared folder who can then make security decisions.

    Summary

    Definitely still beta, though it seems to have been in beta mode forever without a single upgrade nor news about future releases or features. This could turn into something really powerful though.

    "One of the Best Softwares ever!"

    January 28, 2009  |   By neo_naman

    Version: Dropbox 0.6.402 beta

    Pros

    Easy to use
    Compatible with WIndows, Mac and Linux
    Zero Configuration
    Low Memory Use
    Easy Versatile Web Interface
    Saves Revisions
    Simple to assign Private and Public files
    Easy to Build Photo Gallery

    Cons

    One time, there was a glitch and it did not save a Word document. The document showed up later, but it is necessary to close Word before it syncs online.

    Summary

    Overall, this is by far one of the best softwares I have ever seen. It is simple to use and I am quite dependant on it. It come with 2GB storage, which I find is fine for me. It might fall short for some people. I also like how the computer does not have to be on, for you to access the files on it. Personally, I'd recommend this software to anyone and everyone. I need it as much as I need my email.
    Best part of the website is the tutorial video. Watch it!
