Dropbox Increases Storage Space for Professional and Business Standard Customers

Dropbox today announced that it is increasing the amount of storage space available to many of its paid subscribers for no additional charge.

Starting today, Dropbox Professional accounts get 2TB of storage space, while Business Standard teams have access to 3TB of shared storage space.


According to Dropbox, its new storage limits give customers more freedom to free up phone and hard drive space, share large files, and work with Dropbox's Smart Syncing features.

All new Professional and Business Standard accounts include the upgraded storage today, while storage for existing accounts will be upgraded in the coming weeks.

Dropbox is not increasing storage space available for free tiers or its Plus accounts. Free storage space remains limited to 2GB, while Plus subscribers will continue to have 1TB of storage space.

Dropbox Professional is priced at $19.99 per month or $16.58 when paying yearly. Dropbox Business is priced at $15 per month per user with a minimum of three users, but pricing drops to $12.50 per user when billed yearly.

Still too expensive.

Apple leads the pack with $9.99/month for 2 TB.

"That sucks that I don't get a bump from 1TB"

*clicks the icon in the menu bar and sees I'm only using 15% of my space*

"I suddenly feel better!"

Man, I haven’t re-linked my Dropbox account to my Mac in years. iCloud Drive does what I need all the time for quite a lovely and very non-Apple low, low, price.

OneDrive is GREAT. Great on Mac with Word, great on Windows, great on iOS and Android. I highly recommend it ESPECIALLY if you have an Office 365 subscription. That 1TB is a no brainer then. :)

Agreed, OneDrive is probably the best of the bunch, and I’ve used ‘em all.

The iCloud account should be equal to the GB of your purchased device.

That is what I have always thought as well, if you buy a 128gb iPhone or device then your iCloud storage should match that, not some measly 5gb.

Nice for pro and business users. I just want them to get rid of the nags in the plus interface constantly trying to get you to upgrade to business plan. Seems tacky to clutter the interface with a constant nag for paying users. For free tier, fine, not for paying tiers.


This really upset me back when I was a dropbox user. Constantly asking me to join Business Teams ... not just once, but all the frigging time, it just got offensive. Then Plus came along and wow, like advertisement every screen has ads to UPGRADE. I did frigging upgrade...

I went from many many years of Dropbox to Google Drive to OneDrive to iCloud Drive. I still use OneDrive for work thanks to selective folder sync but iCloud drive is actually getting usable and is very fast. With my MBP I'm very happy with it, and the cost - 2TB for my entire family for $9.99/mo. Win. Hoping for shared folders and selective sync someday soon.

Dropbox is a lot more trouble than what it's worth. When you share a folder with someone else and drop a large file in it, not only does it use up your available space but also the account of the person you shared it with. Double dipping. Sometimes I have to delete my files I uploaded so they can upload a file. Dumb.


They've done this since day one. Yeah, I think it's horrible. What I love most about Dropbox is the LAN syncing. Great way to get files from one computer to another. Now that all I use is a MBP, not much use for it. lol.

I have an unlimited space from G Suite for Education.


Yeah those are fun, as long as it's a 4 year university or a college that doesn't delete your account or deactivate it the moment you're done. I've lost one (and all its data) this way because the admin thought I was a student not coming back. My wife lost hers after a summer program stint.

I did have a Google Business account with unlimited space. That was fun. Only problem I don't like about Google Drive, when a person's account is deleted, all their files are bye-bye if the admin chooses to do so. That and I don't use Google anymore if I can help it.

Even more shocking is that iCloud Drive is actually getting, dare I say it, good. For work-related reasons I use almost all the cloud storage solutions on various machines, including iCloud Drive, Box, Dropbox, and Google Drive, plus Resilio Sync (sorry, no OneDrive). Three or four years ago I would have trusted Dropbox to sync the most reliably out of the cloud solutions, and then Box, with iCloud Drive and Google Drive bringing up the rear. But in the past year it's gotten to the point where I actually trust iCloud Drive the most out of all of them.


When and if Apple adds shared folder to the iCloud, I will be removing Dropbox for good.

That is not to say Dropbox and iCloud are anywhere near feature parity. For me to fully embrace iCloud and recommend it heartily to others, it would need versioning, ability to control which files and/or folders can remain offline, and support for storage space larger than 2 TB.
