    "Awesome backup, synchronization, sharing tool and more"

    April 7, 2013  |   By mp-net

    Version: Dropbox 2.0.5

    Pros

    After simple installation this program requires no maintenance.
    Everything inside Dropbox folder is automatically backed up.
    Dropbox folder is automatically synchronized between all your computers.
    Access to all your files from Dropbox folder on cell phones and tablets (Android, iOS, BlackBerry).
    All your deleted and changed files are available for 30 days in the cloud, and can be easily recovered.

    Cons

    Only 2GB of cloud space for free, but can be increased to 16GB through referrals and other bonus programs if you don't want to update to paid version. (check referral link below)

    Summary

    When you create Dropbox account from the referral link below you will receive extra 500MB (2.5GB instead of 2GB) at the beginning:

    Dropbox awards extra 500MB only after you install the program on your computer and connect it to your account created with referral link.

    Great program. I can't imagine my work without it any more. I have all my most important documents on my home computer in sub-folders of Dropbox. They automatically update on my Netbook and my computer at work when I open them. When I don't have any of my computers around me then I open my files on my cell phone.

    Recently I also started using automatic upload of pictures from my cell phone to Dropbox. Now I don't have to worry about connecting phone with computer through Bluetooth or USB cable any more.

    "Confusing number of updates makes me uneasy"

    April 5, 2013  |   By summerstormpictures

    Version: Dropbox 2.0.5

    Pros

    It works...or does it?

    Cons

    I've simply become confused as heck over why there are so many updates and why there's simply not an option to automatically do this right in the application. Welcome to the 21st century.

    Summary

    It works, plain and simple, but as another said before--get it done right the first time. I have never seen this many updates spew in such a short time. I have become uneasy and have begun to wonder why? What could go wrong? Was I at risk? I just don't feel confident and am thankful to have another backup solution running concurrently just in case.
