Dropbox is a cloud-based file sharing software system that caters to individuals and businesses of all sizes. This solution allows users to share files and send file requests to people even if they don’t have a Dropbox account. Multiple users can leave comments on files and can collaborate with Microsoft Office.

Key Features

  • Store and sync: Keep all your files securely stored, up to date, and accessible from any device.
  • Share: Quickly send any file—big or small—to anyone, even if they don’t have a Dropbox account.
  • Stay secure: Keep your files private with multiple layers of protection from the service trusted by millions.
  • Collaborate: Manage tasks, track file updates, and stay in sync with your teams and clients.


The solution can recover deleted files and maintains version histories in case users want to recover old file versions. It also keeps track of all actions performed on specific files. Advanced sharing enables only selected users to see important files, and files can be remotely wiped if sensitive data gets compromised. Dropbox can also back up all photos as they are added.


No special system requirements.

File sharing with Dropbox is quick and simple. By just sharing a link, you can send anything – from photos and videos to zipped folders and large CAD files – with anyone, even if they don’t have a Dropbox account. Share links and files from anywhere, using your phone, tablet or computer. And unlike email attachments, you don’t have to worry about file size limits—share files as large as your cloud storage space quota.

    Overall, this is a great software option for companies to use if they don’t need very robust security features (ie HIPPA/FERPA) options. It is very easy for multiple teams and companies to work together to house documents and see what version of the document they are looking at. The software is easy to sync up to a desktop and always ensure that the web version vs your desktop is the same. It is also easy to see comments and who updated the latest version of the document. The way that the documents are organized could use to some work, but overall, this is a good product that can house a lot of documents in the same place and are accessible via mobile and desktop in a very simple way. No set up is needed and no in depth tech knowledge is needed, which is a great option for any company to be able to allow anyone to administer the account.
