Additional Backups for Dropbox Business members

Additional Backups for Dropbox Business members

New member | Level 2

Right now, with the top tier dropbox plan (Dropbox Business), you are currently only allowed to have an amount of backups equal to the number of licenses attached to that business plan. You are allowed to have one (1) computer backup and one (1) hard drive backup per license. 

Dropbox business is so appealing to someone like myself, who has a team of content creators that shoot content around the world for various clientele, and has tons of footage to backup and have it accessible on an application like Dropbox. With all that work comes hard drive after hard drive of footage we acquire per shoot, and being able to back those up to dropbox would be not only beneficial, but extremely important with time management. 


    I understand only allowing one (1) computer backup per license, but with storage capacity not being a factor (since business members get unlimited storage), why would hard drive backups be limited to the same? 

In my field, you aquire tons of external hard drives FULL of footage that you never want to get rid of, but these harddrives dont last over time, so our options are applications like Dropbox (which is why i have a business account), or to buy external equipment for mass storage. 

Being able to access old drives at the touch of a backup download would be ideal for me and my team.
