The price of Dropbox Plus is changing to AU$167.88/year (plus any applicable taxes) on 25 June 2020.
This all-new plan has more space and new premium features – all for just AU$58.88 more a year.
Quite frankly this is bordering on criminal. I have 2 weeks to canel, find an alternative and delete this bull**bleep**!!

I found out tonight when I was checking a LANsync and saw the option to online sync. Then I noticed the 2TB. Then I went to the help and found out my iTunes annual bill of $139.99 would be going up to $184.99(save17 *@!???
I have been using Dropbox so long and seen so many things taken off us, such as Carousel leaving iOS with no albums. Then the ability to hide a folder from the photos view was taken away. Mailbox was dropped as well. Come to think of it DropBox is the perfect name for a "service" that drops things.
All I ever wanted was to have a safe place for my photos, not share, not paper, not team. Well this is the last straw and I will find somewhere else to put my 1.8% of 2054.2GB.
I was also pretty unhappy about having to remove encryptfs from my Linux and be stuck on ext4 just to satisfy what I consider to be institutionalized laziness.
I don't want offline access; With the pathetic internet available to the proletariat in Australia, offline access is a nonsense! So now reduced to three devices with my 6.25GB earned - until you take that away too!
I'm Thinking OneDrive may be better anyhow. Look at the CPU usage between DB and OD. (and this is on a i7-7700.
The DB Sync was deleting files that I transfered to OD which is in the process of updating and uploading.
I disagree with the 'additional devices' - just because I am a home user doesn't mean i don't have multiple devices (desktop/laptop/phones etc). If they did that, that would make the situation even worse for me
I think (possibly 500GB) or preferably a 1TB plan would be ideal.
I suggest any other paid customers who are unhappy about this submit a complaint via the support form. You may be offered a discount for next year. This only delays the issue as far as I am concerned but still, it is worth considering.
If you need more help you can log a ticket with our Support Team here (expected response time 24 hours), or contact us on Twitter or Facebook.
