If This Sounds Like You, a Dropbox Alternative May be in Order

You don’t have enough storage space. Your old file versions can’t be saved for as long as you need them. Your file sizes are capped.

It’s something a lot of Dropbox users face.

There are any number of reasons why you may be looking for an alternative to this file-sharing program. And there are an equal number of suitable solutions. Let’s begin by analyzing why many users would be interested in switching from Dropbox to a file-sharing alternative.

You need more space.

Dropbox only comes with 2GB of free storage space, a cap that will be quickly reached for even a midsize business. More space requires more money.

You need to upload larger files.

Files uploaded through the Dropbox website are limited to only 10 GB.

You need to wipe files remotely.

Only upgraded users can remotely wipe away files from lost, stolen or retired devices.

You need 24/7 customer support.

Dropbox does not offer round-the-clock or even phone support. Customer service is available by email only.

You need to access old versions of your files.

If the version you need is more than 30 days old, you’re out of luck unless you purchase a separate extended history feature.

You need to sync files from outside your Dropbox folder.

There’s no luck, as only files within the Dropbox folder can be synced.

You need multiple Dropbox accounts on one device.

Unless you’re an upgraded user, this is a no-go.

You want to create your own private keys for added security.

According to its website, this is something Dropbox “might consider adding in the future.”
