Why We Have to Use Dropbox Cloud Storage 2017

Dropbox is a pretty notorious cloud startup known for its ease-of-use and functionality. While only offering 2GB of storage space, Dropbox is the most cross-platform cloud service of the bunch – it has clients for Windows, OS X, and Linux, as well as iOS (iPad and iPhone), Android, and even Blackberry – and it makes collaboration quite simple. It also has a good set of file recovering features; a one-month history of your work is kept, you can undo changes to files and even undelete them.Finally, there’s also Dropbox Teams, which allows you to get 1,000GB or more storage for a more costly rate. Helpful for businesses especially who have need for such cloud storage and collaboration tools.
