Dropbox is great! We had to upgrade for more space but we haven’t had any issues.
Co-founder - Flutter Social
They both work fine. No complaints really.
Founder & CEO - Fruit Street
We’re transitioning from Dropbox to Google Drive because it does almost the same thing and it’s a unified experience with other Google products. But they just announced that they’re going to take away personal plans and may introduce pricey business plans soon, so perhaps we may have to revisit this decision.
Founder & CEO - SendBird
Dropbox works well for our needs.
Co-founder & CEO - inDinero
We keep the financial documents on Dropbox.
Co-founder & CEO - MuseFind
We use Dropbox a little bit more when we work with external teams.
Founder & CEO - FoodTrace
As a team, we use a combination of Lately, Dropbox and Google Drive. But for marketing, Lately integrates with Google Drive, Box, Dropbox or OneDrive and automatically mirrors those files so we know that everything lives in the same place and don't have to chase it down.
Kate Bradley Chernis
Co-founder & CEO - Lately
Dropbox is hard to organize and they have not really created new features lately.
Founder & CEO - Unbound
Dropbox gets the job done.
Co-founder & CEO - GMB Fitness
We use Dropbox for files that are not manipulated. It is a great place to store documents that you may need to reference months down the line.
Co-founder & CEO - Amper Music
We use Dropbox for images and files that are size heavy.
Founder & CEO - Re-Nuble
Dropbox is our default storage place.
Founder & CEO - Open Collective
Dropbox is great--we have the Premium plan.
Founder & CEO - Sustainabody
We have Dropbox but sometimes there are inconsistencies in the synchronization.
Co-founder & CEO - StrongDM
I use Dropbox personally.
Founder & CEO - Bonbouton
I have a Dropbox account where I scan receipts and anything else that my CFO might need.
Founder & CEO - Agorapulse
We are moving from Dropbox to Dropbox for Work and it wasn’t easy to make that migration.
COO - Wearable X
We use Dropbox. One mistake that I constantly see is that people are trying to use the online version instead of the Desktop version. The Desktop version is much better--it is faster to upload and synchronizes very rapidly.
Founder & CEO - Glass-U
We use Dropbox mainly for our photo shoots.
Founder & CEO - Zuvaa
We use Dropbox to store documents and design assets or presentations. It is easier to share them that way.
Co-founder & CEO - Winnie
We use Dropbox for storing documents. We use Dropbox Paper, a text editor. It is very handy. It allows you to type text faster and is lighter than Google Docs. It is integrated with Dropbox. It comes for free with Dropbox Enterprise--I am not sure if you can have it with the free version.
Founder & CEO - Teleport
I personally love Dropbox, and they are constantly improving the tool. We started with them and we will stick with them for awhile as it is really hard for a company to migrate from one platform to another.
Co-founder & CEO - Mavatar
We use Dropbox as a repository and archive. We use it for all multimedia requirements.
Alain van Gils
Co-founder & CEO - T-shaped
We use Dropbox for storing assets. We have mainly photos and images on there.
CEO - HackerYou
We keep the restricted information on Dropbox. It is easier to manage access.
CEO - Nugit
I like Dropbox. The fact that it is overriding files when two people are writing at the same time or if one has forgotten to close it is a little annoying. The collaboration aspect is not as good as with Google Docs.
Co-founder & CEO - Proximi.io
We use Dropbox (as a remote server) to hold static assets, powerpoints, and keynotes for most presentations. If I had known Google Drive earlier, I would have switched to it because it is simpler.
Co-founder & CEO - One Month
We use Dropbox mainly for investor paperwork and documents that require client signature.
CEO & Founder - Direct Cannabis
We are at a point where we are using too many file sharing tools! So we’re working on consolidating and will end up choosing only one of these.
Founder - SnapEDA
I tried to use Google Drive, but I don’t like the UI. I was a very early user of Dropbox and have a lot of space. Dropbox is also very intuitive and well organized.
Founder - Lord Jameson Dog Patisserie
Dropbox has a much nicer version control setup than Google Drive. Dropbox’s OSX app is also better. It is great that it can be used on your computer and not only on the cloud.
Co-founder & CEO - Moesif
We have the Dropbox paid team version. It’s okay. We had some instances where some files have been lost, but they finally fixed it. Each one of us has 100MB accounts so we are not switching anytime soon.
CEO & Co-founder - Pyze
Dropbox is very good.
CEO - Jack Media
I like Dropbox a lot. One flaw is that, if I am sharing a file with our designer, it is using both my and his storage space.
Founder - Nicely Noted
I like Dropbox a lot, even though it’s expensive. In terms of functionalities, it is great.
Founder & CEO - Embroker
We use Dropbox mostly for sales related documents and invoices.
Co-founder & CEO - Recruitee
I use Dropbox for hardware backups.
Co-founder & CEO - UCIC
We use Dropbox for sharing with external parties.
COO - Aquarius Cannabis
We use Dropbox for more sensitive information.
Co-founder & CEO - Student Loan Hero
We’ve been on Dropbox Paper’s beta for a while. It’s a much simpler version of Google Docs. It doesn’t make you create files and put them in folders or anything like that. It lets you make docs on the fly and share it.
Co-founder & CEO - Beamery
With clients, we use Dropbox--just because it’s easy, and links tend to work with clients. Dropbox seems to work very well.
Managing Director - Evoluted
We use Dropbox for file sharing, especially for the designers.
CEO - Mention
We’ve started using Drive more than Dropbox. Collaborative documents makes such a huge difference--no more sharing and uploading.
Founder & CEO - Pixc
Dropbox offers a better level of security compared to Drive.
Founder - Vicky Virtual
For the files that we have to download, we use Dropbox. We recently ran out of space, but can’t justify the high cost per user per month to pay for more, so for now we’re on a limited version of Dropbox without sync, but it gets the job done for a startup. We do not use it as cloud storage but more as a file sharing tool in the old-fashioned way. It’s good for sharing design files that are outside Google Drive.
Founder - Bamboo Supply
Rarely, we use Dropbox. Only what we are sharing something with people outside the company.
Co-founder & CTO - MineWhat
Dropbox is OK. We only use our personal accounts. The cost per user is expensive, it would be better if it was by storage instead of by user or if the first 10 users were free.
Co-founder - Trove
We have Dropbox integrated with Slack.
Co-founder & CEO - Limelight Health
Dropbox is fine. I feel that you run out of space pretty fast and you need to upgrade.
Co-founder & COO - Fizz
We lost some files through Google Drive… so I put a ban on it.
Co-founder & CTO - Beyond Pricing
We share documents and live-edit through Google. All of the documentation and project planning is done in Google Drive. We use Dropbox for permanent file storage and day-to-day working file storage. There is an enormous amount of activity on our Dropbox and both are deeply integrated with Slack.
President - MU/DAI
It's hard to fight against Dropbox because so many business contacts use it. Dropbox is easier to work with for doing business with other people.
Co-founder & CEO - Smync
We use Dropbox Business, because we have some heavy design files.
Founder & CEO - Do
Dropbox holds our internal documentation--our day-to-day file sharing and storage.
Founder - Andy OS
Dropbox is what we use to do file sharing internally, because it was the first to do it. Also, I use a PC and everyone else uses a Mac: Dropbox works seamlessly for both. It saved me from getting a file server.
Founder & CEO - TelecomQuotes
With Dropbox, I can access my files from anywhere.
Founder & CEO - MySiteAuditor
Dropbox Business for teams is great. It provides more administrative tools to use. For example, you can create team folders or when people leave your company, you can manage their access.
Founder - Engine
We use Dropbox also for legal and accounting related documents. We keep it because it is good to have a separation of concerns, but if we had started with Google Docs we probably wouldn’t have it.
Founder & CEO - AppGyver
Dropbox is perfect for design and image asset storage.
Co-founder & CEO - Opternative
Dropbox is easier to use for when I need to share public documents with a straight link.
Founder & CEO - iPyxel Creations
Everything that I have is in Dropbox. Dropbox makes it easy to differentiate between personal and company accounts. But, we have had instances of syncing issues.
Founder - HandUp
Dropbox is great; it does the job.
Founder & CEO - Coach.me
We use Dropbox for Business for our “static” file sharing. For anything that requires active collaboration or heavy editing, we use Google Docs and Google Spreadsheets.
Co-founder & CEO - Nitrous
For product design, two of us are on Dropbox: myself and another colleague. I signed up really early to Dropbox so I have 100GB available. I am getting to the point that when I sync my Dropbox, it slows everyone’s connection. We do not have this problem with Google Drive.
Co-founder & CEO - Qordoba
Anything that is read-only is in Dropbox. We have a template we use to run projects. We collaborate on the template in Google Drive, and once the project is wrapped up, we download the template and keep it in Dropbox. We archive everything in Dropbox.
Co-founder - Rocksbox
We use Dropbox to share files internally in the company.
Co-founder & CEO - Concord
The big downside of using Dropbox is that your team can’t edit a document all at the same time.
Founder & CEO - TechnoRides
Our operations team uses Dropbox to collaborate with 3rd parties for large files.
Co-founder & CEO - Inkshares
We use Dropbox for our more private documents that shouldn’t be shared with the whole team, like files related to our financials. And we also use it to store large files, like photos, that take up a lot of space.
Director of Service & Operations - Smart Lunches
We use Dropbox for design assets.
Co-founder - BuildZoom
We use Dropbox for Teams.
Co-founder - FullContact
Dropbox is used for shared file storage for things like contracts, media assets, etc.
Co-founder & CEO - Bold
We use Dropbox extensively. We use it to share big files with clients, like disclosures. And we like having public links to share with clients so they can download documents directly. We use freelance transaction coordinators, and they can easily manage paperwork and collect signatures via Dropbox, and we use Dropbox to collaborate with them.
Co-founder & CEO - Open Listings
We use Dropbox for file sharing. There wasn’t a particular reason we chose Dropbox, other than the founder was already using Dropbox, so all of his files were already in there. As we all joined the company, it was natural for us to use Dropbox. Their recent updates, which include better integrations with Microsoft products, makes it more collaborative than ever before. Now you can see if someone is looking at a document, or editing a document, in real-time. In the past, there were issues with version control.
COO - Chat Sports
We use Dropbox to share large files.
Marketing Manager - Shippo
If we’re sharing anything outside of our company, we put it on Dropbox.
Co-founder & CEO - Neurotrack
We put large files, like photos, in Dropbox. It’s low-cost, so it doesn’t hurt to keep it around. The way I see it, whatever the team needs, I try to give it to them!
Co-founder & CEO - Townsquared
We use Dropbox and AWS for bigger files, like call recordings.
CEO - OnSIP
I love Dropbox for the very reason that I can access it offline (and we use it exclusively internally). I can access it from the plane at 30,000 feet without WiFi.
Founder & CEO - Arment Dietrich
Dropbox is dead. We used to use it, but not anymore because Google Drive is much better.
Founder & CEO - Roomi
Dropbox is used for all of our documents that are not shared in Google Drive; in particular, proposals and PDFs of handouts for supporters and recruiters.
COO - Venture for America
We use Dropbox quite a bit; most of our files are kept, and shared, in Dropbox.
Head of Marketing - Pipedrive
Everyone uses their own thing, but Dropbox is the most used.
Founder & CEO - Museum Hack
We had Dropbox, but it’s confusing to use, and often times, files would just disappear. And it’s not searchable, so files end up lost. And keeping track of who has access to what is confusing in Dropbox! If someone sends us files via Dropbox, we just put them into Google Drive.
Co-founder - Monarq
We use Dropbox Pro. We make and store a lot of videos, and it’s good for storing videos. But only up to a point; then you have to prune it down.
Founder & CEO - VProud
We are heavy users of Dropbox.
Co-founder & CEO - Rollout.io
We take a lot of pictures of our spaces, and we use Dropbox to store all of these big photo files.
Co-founder - Croissant
We use Dropbox to share files externally with the tutors. We like Dropbox because you can customize folders. We use it for tutors to upload, convert and then email videos. We can readily request video files and Dropbox sends alerts and notifications. Dropbox is working on integration so that files can go to a specific host. We want to automate the video, convert it through vimeo, then make it live on the website.
Co-founder & CTO - Tutorlist
I really like Dropbox. It’s easier to upload documents, and it feels more private than Google Drive. But collaboration is much better on Google Drive. In Dropbox, if several people open a document and edit it, then the drafts are not saved. If we’re using Dropbox, I ask people to work on a document, save it, and then upload it back to Dropbox; this way we always only have one copy.
President - Martin Waxman Communications
I like how you can download Dropbox and have the icon in the navigation bar of your computer. This allows you to see when people have dropped something in there, in real-time.
Co-founder & CEO - Queen of Raw
We basically have our entire server on Dropbox, and we love it. Every once in awhile, it thinks a file is missing, which can be frustrating, but it’s a rare occurrence. Overall, it’s a solid product.
Co-founder - Mexicue
Dropbox is what we use team-wide.
VP of Product Development - RescueTime
We use Dropbox Pro, and are also trying to move to using Paper, Dropbox’s Google Docs competitor. I do not like Google Drive, so moving off of any Google Drive product is a welcome move.
Founder & CEO - Knowtify
We have a Dropbox Business account, and everyone loves Dropbox. We use Dropbox at crazy levels. A few months ago, we finished some design sprints where we would design a new product all on a prototype with no functionality. We’d spend 3 days designing it, and 3 days showing it to customers to get their feedback. We recorded videos for each of those customer feedback sessions, and we ended up having 30 different 1-hour videos. We put them all in one Dropbox folder that had a Confluence page tied to it. Then we could go watch each customer walking through the prototypes. We also got the video transcripts translated, and we stored everything in Dropbox. We use Dropbox all the time, and love it!
Co-founder - BuzzStream
We’ve found Dropbox to be the superior file management system. We started off using Dropbox because a lot of our initial team had all referred it to people in the past and had earned many GB of free storage. But as we grew, we ran into issues with people running out of space. We didn’t want to pay for Dropbox, so we initially moved collaborative documents over to Google Drive, and kept static files on Dropbox. But we constantly had problems finding files in Google Drive, and anytime we wanted to print something, we had to download it as a PDF to our computers and then print it out. We found Google Drive to be quite frustrating and disappointing. We learned our lesson, and migrated everything back to Dropbox and now we’re paying for Dropbox Pro. I also love that with the Dropbox app, I have my entire business file management system in my pocket!
Co-founder & CEO - Commonwealth Joe
I’m totally biased towards Dropbox. They’ve figured it all out with syncing, access on mobile, sharing, commenting on files, etc. It’s a great product and always happy to wave the Dropbox flag!
Co-founder & CEO - Sociality Squared
Our design team uses Dropbox for large file sharing and storage. These tools seamlessly integrate with Smartsheet, making workflows very efficient!
Senior Network Administrator - Smartsheet
I keep company files and legal documents in Dropbox. We use it to store files, not necessarily to share them.
Co-founder & CEO - Fieldbook
Dropbox is better than Google Drive because it has a native Linux client.
Co-founder - Chrobrus
For sharing files externally, and for those that don’t need editing, we use Dropbox.
Co-founder - TheSquareFoot
We signed up for Dropbox and Box, but we mostly only used them when we were fundraising, and we were sharing documents with investors and lawyers. We still use both sporadically, but more for high-value company documents, like board agreements and our company charter.
Co-founder - Kinnek
We use Dropbox, but to be honest, we don’t have many files to share!
Founder & Owner - Campus Delivery
Dropbox is our big repository. We’re on one of their paid plans.
Head of Finance - Dots
Honestly, we really only use Dropbox when a partner or other third party prefers to use Dropbox. Occasionally, our designer will use Dropbox, on top of Google Drive, when sending designs to our developer in Taiwan, but we really mainly use Google Drive.
Founder & CEO - Blinkbuggy
We use Dropbox to share other file types with each other.
Co-founder - Simple Texting
We use Dropbox for Business for all external files.
Founder & CEO - messageLOUD
We use both Google Drive and Dropbox, and they’re both equally effective. Our CEO prefers Dropbox, but I prefer Google Drive. But honestly, it’s great for us to use multiple platforms because we love having backups of backups. So the more places something is stored, the better. We like both of these tools, and both are very easy to use.
Chief Operations Officer - CTRL Collective
Our use of Dropbox has really fallen by the wayside, but we do still have it and use it occasionally.
Co-founder & CIO - Enplug
We use Dropbox for Business primarily to store all of our graphics, as well as artwork while in active production.
CEO & Co-founder - Plum Print
Dropbox for Business is a good place to store huge files and graphics, like our logo.
Co-founder - GoKid
I work directly out of Dropbox, so all my design work is always backed up and accessible. With notifications enabled, my engineers can see what I’m designing and what’s coming up next.
Chief Design Officer & Co-founder - Zola
We use Dropbox occasionally when a file needs to be shared between an employee and a client.
Founder - Built for Teams
We’re using the free version of Dropbox, and have been since our early days. We will probably upgrade to a paid version soon.
Founder & CMO - Cloze
We’re all on personal Dropbox plans. FloQast, a tool we use to help us close our books faster, is integrated with Box, instead of Dropbox, which is the reason we use both Box and Dropbox. I personally don’t have a preference for either one.
CFO - Makeable
I use Dropbox for everything, along with Evernote and FreshBooks.
Founder & CEO - Writing It Right For You
We recently just started using Dropbox for Business, and the business version has been a bit better than the free version. Previously, we had issues with people overwriting files, and tons of duplicate copies of files. We also had issues with people deleting files and not realizing that would delete the files for everyone. Dropbox for Business is better than the free version in that it allows me to see what everyone is doing, so I can minimize all of these pain points.
Director of Marketing and Operations - mbaMission
Sometimes I have calls with tech folks and scientists, and someone will record the session. It’s so easy to just send an email with a link to the video or audio recording stored on Dropbox, rather than emailing a massive file to everyone. Dropbox is secure enough, but I do not trust it for my legal or IP documents.
Founder & CEO - Halo Life Science
All of these are for sharing internally.
Head of Growth Marketing (former) - Mention
We used Dropbox for Business, but we’ve been using it much less now. The designers still use it to share designs and wireframes, and we use it for team organization for the Aviary team.
Co-founder - Aviary
Dropbox has client folders of everything needed to upload a book. All of our employees have Dropbox Pro accounts.
Founder & COO - Book In A Box
Dropbox was something my co-founder and I were using personally. We don't even have a business account with them, we just use our personal ones.
Founding Partner - Blueprint Health
Dropbox as my personal backup in case my hard drive fails. But we’re not using the sharing functionality much.
Founder & CEO - Hardbound
Dropbox is great for teams.
President & CEO - Selectable Media
Dropbox is easy to use, and has a desktop client for easy access to files. However, I had a malware attack in Dropbox and lost several files. I had to spend days converting my files to another database.
Director of Operations - Inxent, Inc.
We use our personal Dropbox accounts because we just prefer that tool. The Dropbox Mac app works better than Google Drive's; we find Dropbox to be faster for uploading stuff, and the sharing settings are more straightforward.
Co-founder - Cloudo
We use Dropbox to share files internally and with clients. It was an easy choice because lots of our clients were already using Dropbox. We chose Dropbox originally because it came on the scene faster than others. It’s reliable, and it has grown with us; we easily upgraded from Dropbox Personal to Dropbox for Business.
Founder & CEO - Sociallybuzz
We’ve been using Dropbox less and less because Google Drive is so easy and built right into our platform.
CEO - Katch
We had used the standard Dropbox offering for a while when we were scrappy, and we did everything possible to squeeze out the extra storage space. Now we've switched to Dropbox for Business, and we're happy with the team features.
Co-founder & COO - Betterment
Our freelancers use Dropbox to post photos in Slack.
Editorial Director & Editor-in-Chief - ReadWrite
We use Dropbox for invoices, accounting materials and contracts.
Jose de Andrade
Founder & Director - Hello Australia
Dropbox makes sharing files and folders easy for us.
Founder - Jurnid
Dropbox is great for collaboration, but very hard to scale as we are scaling. We have tons of files, and when everyone has access to the same files with few permissions/controls over who can do what, things get inadvertently erased. It's just hard to manage with such widespread access.
Co-founder & CEO - Greenhouse
I like the way that it integrates with all of my devices. Google has gotten better at it since they started, but I picked Dropbox back in the day and have had no desire to switch. I also really like that Dropbox allows you to link your personal and company dropboxes. The team feature is a big bonus.
CTO, COO - Parrable
Dropbox seems to just work better than Google Drive. I'm not all that educated on the other options, but Dropbox has done the trick thus far.
Founder & CEO - Coin Out Inc.
I've been using Dropbox for years. There's no real reason I stuck with them, other than that there wasn't a real reason for me to start over.
Ron J. Williams
Managing Partner - proofLabs Group
It's so simple. All my stuff is in one place even though I have multiple devices.
Founder - ExecCoach.Me
Dropbox is easy to use and gives you the ability to share resources that may be too large to submit via email. The only con is that, after a certain capacity, it requires you to subscribe and pay a monthly fee.
Co-founder - Drop Global
It's dead simple to use, cheap and runs in the background. Plus, business plans get unlimited stored revisions.
CEO - DeansList
Dropbox has our sales HR and finance docs--that's where we keep all of the files we generate.
Co-founder & CEO - Segment
Dropbox tends to be very unstructured, so we're still looking for the right solution for file sharing.
Founder & CEO - Pollfish
Dropbox is great at its core function: syncing files correctly and not losing them. We tried some other platforms with more functionality, but we ended up losing some of our files. Dropbox does exactly what you need it to do.
CEO & Co-founder - Movable Ink
We picked it early on and have never felt the need to switch. A lot of it is brand loyalty.
Co-founder - Keen IO
Dropbox is obviously an easy tool for consumers, but their recent business product was a no-brainer for us. The only knock I have against it is that it's been unstable for us when dealing with large graphics and image assets.
Founder & CEO - Framed Data
We keep all of our files in Dropbox.
Co-founder - Tuckerman & Co.
We’re using this both as an internal repository for project files, but also for external sharing. We’re really not happy with the file organization structure, which is becoming more of an issue as we grow.
Co-founder & CEO - Ampush
We use Dropbox for flat files.
CEO - Truffle
We use Dropbox less as a collaborative platform for sharing resources, but more for keeping track of key documents.
Founder & Editor-in-Chief - The Information
I don't love it. The UI is confusing, and file management is not handled very well. I have many files in Dropbox, and they're hard to find/move around. It works better for me when it's integrated into Finder on my Mac, so then it becomes a virtual drive. We're also starting to just AirDrop files across the office, which is a bit easier than Dropbox. The thing that's nice about Dropbox is that you can share public links, and we use that for big PowerPoint files.
COO - Citia
Dropbox is a very good, affordable tool for file-sharing.
CEO - PureWow
Dropbox is very easy to use.
Team Lead - Muse Games
Dropbox is fine. It gets the job done, but it’s basic. We use it in conjunction with other tools.
Founder & CEO - Layer
We tried Google Drive at first, but I really hated editing in Google Drive. I found it all very cumbersome, and when we switched over to Dropbox, it just worked better. They’re also generous with space, so we don't pay for it.
Co-founder - Journey Bar, LLC
We use Dropbox when we are collaborating with people outside the company because it seems easier than Google Drive for sharing.
VP Finance & Operations - willa
We started with Dropbox only, and used it until we would have had to start paying. Then we added Google Drive, as well. Dropbox is better for sharing files externally, and also for managing user access, so we keep more sensitive documents in Dropbox.
Co-founder & CEO - Manicube
We’re very Google-reliant, but we use Dropbox for bigger files—especially for our design and sales teams.
CEO & Founder - Greatist
I don't love Dropbox, but it gives us the functionality we need. The UI is a little weird, but it’s good for working across time zones, locations, etc.
Co-Founder & Co-CEO - Plated
There aren't really any special reasons we use them. It's just easy and reliable. There's no reason to switch.
Founder & President - Lionheart Software
Google Drive has some advantages over Dropbox. Dropbox has too many viruses, it’s too expensive and not possible to work simultaneously on a document, like you can on Google Drive.
Founder & CEO - AirHelp
