"Truncates Large Files Without Warning"
Version: Dropbox 3.2.6
Allows uploading, downloading and sharing of small files only.
But DropBox is pants for large files. And because of this syncing is suspect. I have Windows 7 and an Acer Notebook. Using DropBox someone has shared three WAV files to my account; each is about 250MB. I have a hi-speed wifi connection but every time I try and download one of these all goes well until about 200MB - then the downloading stops. The implication is that the full download has succeeded but the file is actually truncated short - and without warning. It does appear that unlike other cloud sites, e.g. MediaFire, DropBox downloads are not restartable. DropBox is pants for large files.
Pants for large files - not fit for purpose.
"Definitely not the be all, end all"
Version: Dropbox 3.2.6
Once your file is uploaded, it is very handy to simply provide a link to someone to share the file with.
Very slow upload - 3 to 4 hours for 311 mb video. Tried to share using e-mail, but set up for social media only. A fairly easy workaround is just copy the webpage URL and paste into a separate e-mail. I guess the best option is an overnight upload.
Not great but better than nothing and if you are happy with 2 GB total file storage, is free.
