Many small and growing businesses utilize Dropbox to store files as well as syncing and collaboration. Some users have switched to alternatives due to its high prices, small space and numerous data breaches. There are plenty of options to choose from. Some are cloud storage services, with different storage limits. Some are collaborative file sharing applications with additional features, such as video sharing or project management tools.
Box is a great alternative to Dropbox. It comes with an easy interface and supports all major formats for files. It also supports drag-and drop, invites collaborators to view or editing files, and supports uploading and sharing files via only a link. Microsoft OneDrive is another top competitor. It shares an identical interface to Dropbox and comes with an array of features that are similar, but it also offers broader business plans with unlimited storage, Office 365 apps and security features.
Google Drive is a popular choice for those tied to the Google ecosystem and its 15GB of free storage surpasses Dropbox’s free offerings. It’s a great choice for people who want to collaborate on Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents using its integrated Office suite. It’s also easy to integrate with other productivity tools and workflows thanks to the integrations with apps available. Finally, NordLocker is a strong competitor that is focused on privacy and security. It supports zero-knowledge encryption and is compatible with a wide range of mobile and desktop platforms.
