Dropbox is another cloud based free hosting service which provides free account registration to its users. Dropbox offline setup is now available for desktop as free download. Drop box is free cloud service is available for multiple platforms including Android, Apple iOS, Linux, Mac, Symbian, Blackberry and online website as well. The software is similar to Microsoft OneDrive and Google Drive as well. The service was firstly introduced in 2008 for the first time and after sometime the developer features free space for file hosting.
Dropbox provides from 2 GB space to 10 GB to the free users of this service. However, the developer features more space up to 1 Tera Bytes (1000 GB) for business and financial consumers. The daily bandwidth limit is depending on the package and paid amount. However, you can upload 20 GB to 200 GB per day is pro accounts. It requires desktop version to upload big size files and you can’t upload heavy files from website after signing up. You can access to your account from any platform like mobile, PC, Mac or web as well.
The PC version has support for all Microsoft OS versions from Windows Vista to Windows 7 and Windows 8 as well. It shows a drive in My Computer/Favorites where you can upload/download your personal photos, videos, music files, documents and more. There are millions of Apple iOS and Android users who were using it as their default cloud hosting. Apple iCloud is much better and faster cloud service but I don’t think users are proffering Dropbox rather than iCloud.
Some users were hosting some pirated software/applications on their personal Dropbox account. I think it’s against the terms and policies of Dropbox that you can’t host business files to your personal account. So I suggest the bloggers to do not use with storing commercial and non commercial license files to your personal accounts.
