Happy 2014!

newyears

Hey everyone,

I think 2013′s been a pretty great year. We refreshed just about everything we could, and started crafting a home for your photos. For people using Dropbox at work, we designed a brand new Dropbox for Business that gives both users and companies what they’ve been asking for. Meanwhile, we introduced the Dropbox Platform to developers worldwide, and brought Dropbox to seven new languages.

This stuff makes me happy, but none of it would’ve been possible without all the people who joined us. It’s crazy to me that we welcomed Mailbox, Endorse, Sold, PiCloud, and over 300 new Dropboxers to our family, all in one year. Dropbox is now home to the 500 most amazing people I know. And with new offices in Dublin and Austin, it’s the first time we’re not all under one roof.

But really, the best parts of 2013 lead us to the best parts of 2014. Whether you use Dropbox to safekeep photos, share files, or collaborate at work, we can’t wait to show you what we’ve been busy building for you. And though 2014 marks our seventh year as a company, our mission to simplify your life hasn’t changed at all. We’re so grateful you’re all a part of it :).

So whether you joined us this year, or have been with us from the beginning, thank you! It’s going to be a magical year.

Just started using Dropbox today and it’s awesome, I like that it’s a lot more private than Google Drive. Keep it up Dropbox and don’t stop innovating!

But what about security? Either adopt and provide end to end encryption or MEGA will take significant market share from Dropbox.

hola yo hace 2 semanas que no puedo usar el 2013; que tengo que hacer en mi netbok no me lo reconoce a mi celular

2013 was the year I left Dropbox. Compare 2GB + 16GB earned by referral links versus 1 TB free cloud by cloud.mail.ru.

I still love Dropbox and still promote it as I did offer 5 years ago. an encrypted version would be nice. I can’t wait to see what else you can come up with in 2014!!! As some company says “just do it”

I love Dropbox, but i need more space for a better price or I will move to google drive.

New to dropbox, hopefully I will be able to “simplify” my life, too. Have questions but will continue to familiarize myself with it and eventually be able to take advantage of the benefits it offers!!!

Please, I really need a full bidirectional synchronization of selected folders for Android. I don’t know other cloud services, where such synchronization is implemented, Dropbox could be the first.

thanks for your services, it seems to me excellent and better than other similar services.

really intrested in 1TB…. unfortunantely your link is just in Russian!

The Russians are nationalistic nation. They use only their own language. But they create amazing web services, and they are free and much more great. Just use Google Translate. 1 TB is so big space.

What you really should put on your list for 2014: Encryption with custom keys that never leave users devices + more reasonable pricing.

1TB only for a month? What’s the point of that?!

“с 20 декабря 2013 по 20 января 2014″

And unmanageable. At some point they are going to have to charge. Storage is NOT free.

The storage is absolutely free :) By defout, cloud.mail.ru gives you 100GB free cloud. But if you create account between 20th december and 20th January and install PC soft and Android or iOS app you will receive 1 TB for free for no charge. Take a look: http://awesomescreenshot.com/0d625lsc9e

You’re missing the point. It is free *now* it can NOT be free forever. Other providers who give away less space for free have started closing down and going to paid only space this year, it is not sustainable to offer 1tb of space for free

By default they gives me 100GB storage. And what is the logic that they would give a gift 1 TB for only a month? They gives you forever, and you tell a friends and so on. Just marketing.

Sorry but the moment that any of the other cloud storage services work through a work firewall (none prompt for a login and won’t connect since they need my credentials) I will be leaving Dropbox. I was a paying customer for a year and a half but not using all the space I had been paying for. I decided to downgrade back to free with plans to upgrade again when I needed the space. In doing so I was cheated out of space that I had received prior to me paying when I was a free customer and by getting referrals. I got in an e-mail war with one of your support tech’s (something that should never happen) and in the end I lost out. She refused to see or understand that the space I had earned when I was a free customer was supposedly not something I could keep. I would be gone already if Google, Microsoft, or any of the others worked through a firewall. All they need to do is build a login option into their PC clients – which is something myself and many others have suggested to them so it will only be a matter of time.

Dropbox by far wasn’t the first cloud. In fact, Dropbox is not “a cloud” at all. It’s a service that runs in the cloud. And it hasn’t been the first at all to do this. Neither is it the best.

FolderSync is an app that does this for you :)

And what are the terms?

There was some Chinese cloud storage that gave away 16TB of free storage.

The catch was that they would have access to your data and such e.g. spying, marketing w/e.

I use for a while Dropsync. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ttxapps.dropsync&hl=en

I’ve tried loads of tools and this appears the only one working properly. However if you need more than one folder you will need to buy the pro version which I find is still worth the money.

But I agree that this is a must feature missing in the dropbox android tool.

Am really waiting for a ‘run as a service’ version that can be installed on a file server. That way you have cloud access to company file store (yes make sure access rights are correct etc…) that way you have company files on the go!

I’m using Dropbox since 3 year. They are Great. I never found such Wounderful cloud service. If you need More space you may try free trial version of Tapnet Backup. http://tapnet.com/
