dropbox not good anymore :(


#1

there are months now that I have clients who upload files on dropbox for me to download, (I even suggested them to use this service) but too many times, when downloading the files I get speeds of 40kb/s This is getting ridiculous when you need to download 800mb files

I think dropbox is lost. Anyone have this experience?

Yes so… my internet is good, but dropbox is very slow download/upload speed :S i can not say anything cause using as free :smiley:

I had issues where Dropbox would just stop syncing out every now and then which was annoying. I use Copy now. No issues with it as of yet.

Duh! I thought it was my internet connection. I’m having the same issue with dropbox


#5

Experiencing the same problem. :frowning: Wish it’d be fixed.


#6

Same here. Also a lot of times when i upload files the upload process just stops and I have to reupload it. When you upload 2GB’s it’s kinda annoying to upload the same file 2-3 times…

was thinking was just me. will look at this copy then.

I’m on gdrive for some time now.

Switched to gDrive too and I can say that is a whole lot faster and it’s super handy when it comes to teamworking!

I use Tresorit (after the recent celebs hack it’s important to store stuff secured).

Oh nice, I’ve never heard of Tresorit. Looks like a great alternative.

Yes, DropBox is etremely useful but its a little bit weird lately.


#14

Maybe there’s a heavy load on their servers since they just recently changed their 100mb plan to 1TB. I’ve had no issues with it lately, but then again I haven’t downloaded any large files recently.


#15

Been using dropbox for years. Didn’t stumble upon a single problem yet. :slight_smile:


#16

Dropbox is getting better IMO. 1TB now? It’s beautiful. And up/download speed in Germany are just fine.


#17

Tried dropbox, mega and gdrive had various problems with all of them, the only one I have never had problems with is opendrive, generous free space and very fast, syncing is very good in comparison with gdrive


#18

hm my dropbox is light speed fast :slight_smile:


#19

I’ve got a TB capacity account and have no issue uploading large files to them. When I use my desktops, sometimes it’s so quick that it doesn’t even give me time to make coffee! :wink: My other (mobile) devices vary in speed by their respective hardware capabilities and connections strengths.

Though I don’t sync everything and use the Selective Sync to prevent additional background syncing of files that I don’t want to wait for and might slow syncing down.- https://www.dropbox.com/help/4456
