Dropbox Increases Storage Space for Professional and Business Standard Customers

by

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.

"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*

Still too expensive.

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

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.

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.

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.

Yah, same here at 15% usage. I am a paying subscriber on the Plus plan (so 1TB). I had previously earned lots of Bonus space via legitimate referrals prior to upgrading. Upgrade, and wham.... all that bonus space gets folded into my higher quota! But I can't complain. Dropbox has served me very well for coming up to 11 years now.

Haha same. I have 1,063.8GB. All my referrals were illegitimate though. I got a thing in the mail for $100 in Google adwords. I knew that French people especially love it when things are in their language, so I wrote the ad in French and targeted it at younger French users who were looking up certain related terms and used my referral link. I got my referrals almost instantly, lol. I also did those various quests to earn bonus space. Do they even do those any more? I'm not a poor college student anymore so I haven't even thought about it until now.
