Before opting for Dropbox, check whether your platform of choice has a desktop or mobile app built for it.
As far as mobile platforms are concerned, Dropbox has apps for iOS, Android, Windows and Kindle Fire.
The reason for this check is because it’s not possible to use Dropbox via a browser to upload files larger than 20GB. So to overcome this limit, you must use one of the service’s apps.
Dropbox has excellent collaboration features in the form of Dropbox Paper and Smart Sync. Even though a lot of people already have Dropbox accounts, it is still possible to share large files with others, without requiring them to have an account.
It comes as a great disappointment that the free plan only has 2GB of storage space, which can be upgraded to 16GB via referrals and liking the service on Facebook.
There’s only one plan meant for individual use, named Plus, which costs $8.25 per month. So, purely from a pricing perspective, Dropbox is cheaper than Livedrive, but costlier than SugarSync.
It should be noted that neither live chat support nor phone support is available for the Plus plan. Individual users have no choice but to rely on priority email support.
The actual storage space offered is 1TB, combined with 30-days of version history and file recovery.
