Dropbox and Unreasonable Cost for Service

Dropbox and Unreasonable Cost for Service

Hi Community, 

 

Trying to use Dropbox to backup my SMS, 2.7GB worth.

 

Found out there was a 2GB limit on the free account, and an unbelievably high 155CAD/month to 'upgrade' to 2TB.

 

I have 15GB free with GOoledrive.

 

I have 1TB free with Onedrive.

 

At the unrealistically high rates for Dropbox, why would I bother? Dropbox is pricing itself out of the market due to some idiot Suits that are out of touch with the cost of storage.  Good going, Dropbox.

Google subsidizes their cloud storage with their ad revenue. Microsoft subsidizes their cloud storage with their hardware and software revenue. Also, OneDrive only offers 5GB of free space. 1TB comes with Office 365 subscriptions, so you're likely paying for it anyway.

 

Dropbox has... Dropbox.
