What needs improvement?

I don't really see anything that needs to improve. I am not a very heavy user so I haven't had any issues with it. I think it does okay for the basics, for storing and saving files. Perhaps the security of files can be better.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The program is very affordable. I am just not sure what will happen if you forget to renew your license. Will you lose all your data? That is still unclear to me.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Yes, we did use a different solution, Google Cloud, so it was very similar software. I used Microsoft Drive as an alternative too. Google Drive is a great solution if you are on Gmail, so it's worth sticking with Gmail. Also, if you use an… more»

What other advice do I have?

I will rate this solution an eight out of ten. I think there is a lot of distrust when it comes to giving your data to Google. They're a commercially based company, so putting anything on Google Drive might not be hundred percent secure and… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I am using the free solution, which provides me with 2GBs of storage, and for me, it's sufficient.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Previously I used Google storage. Also, I had used a USB key for devices. Initially, Dropbox was the only solution for desktops. Now, Google has software with the same functionality, they do the same thing. Dropbox is unique because it was… more»

What other advice do I have?

Everyone now is on the cloud using some cloud-based solution. Dropbox is not unique anymore, as there are several storage solutions available. Dropbox is easy to use, easy to share, and easy to store documents and files. This solution works… more»
