Martin says: ditch that Dropbox!

FLAME MODE: ON  😉

Ditch Dropbox - problems with dropboxA message to all the people i’ve invited to dropbox over the years: LEAVE DROPBOX NOW – they are unreliable, unpredictable and ungrateful! They have lousy encryption and privacy measures, they team up with the NSA and they have VERY DANGEROUS SMALL PRINT.

Over the years i have advised over one hundred people to start using Dropbox. Dropbox has rewarded me for forwarding new customers with free storage space.

Dropbox seemed a great tool to share footage, titles, short sequences, scripts and other portable stuff.

But…

A WARNING: FREE SPACE ON DROPBOX WILL EXPIRE!!!
Today dropbox wrote me a four sentence email, saying that all my earned free space has expired and reduced my dropbox by 96GB, going back to the basic dropbox size!!

Without warning and without me knowing that “reward storage” expires. Files are no longer synced and about 6,000 files have become frozen.

A one-liner from Dropbox was received as an answer, saying that i should’ve read the small print…

I think this is outrageous and i have QUIT DROPBOX as per today and i advise everyone to do so too.

I’ve switched to a paid Google Drive account (half the price of a paid Dropbox account).

    This is insane. 96gb with invites?
    You should be valuable for dropbox … instead they kick you away …
    Thanks for the tip, we´re looking for alternatives right now. A synology has might be the best solution for out business.
