Stop fobbing people off with some lame corporate reply and listen to your customers. We did not request, ask or even have a choice in this! You were once the best cloud service on the market, however, sadly greed got the better of you like all capitalist organisations.
I already suffer major difficulties managing 500GB through dropbox.
(a) Does not SYNC due to number of files.
For the last few years I have been manually, due to the fact that the Dropbox app cannot handle the number of files in my archive. -- despite this I stuck with dropbox.
(b) Cannot download my archive.
I wanted to download my archive in an attempt to get off Dropbox asap = Unfortunately, it constantly crashes. Effectively I cannot download my files, dropbox will either fail in creaeting a .zip, or it times out during download. I have to micro download files, almost file per file to be able to get my archive off their horrid service.
(c) QUESTION --- if Dropbox cannot handle a 500GB archive, how $^#^&%$ will it manage a 2TB solution?
(D) pCloud is currently selling 2TB for $350 LIFETIME. Does Dropbox management somehow exist in a coked up 1990's timepocket?
thank you very much for your comments, It is great to hear that pCloud are so welcoming/helpful.
As with you, I am having seizures trying to manually download my dropbox files ... hitting the 10K file limit for my downloads is a pain.
I was in the process of testing AnyTrans when I saw your reply; and had a problem in that they have a 30GB transfer limit (and pro-accounts are currently unavailable), so the news you bring is prefectly timed.
Good luck with the new service, sounds like it could be a relief as we head into a new year.
Hi @Ken, thanks for the advice. I have started using pCloud and to be honest I love it! It feels a lot like Dropbox used to = the main difference is that it works 😛
I will update if anything nefarious happens. So far, I am relieved and satisifed to have a replacement.
+ also I have signed up to iDrive. It is a backup solution, not for file sharing -- but once again, I am pleased with the streamlined and focused nature of the application. It is not trying to compete with google, etc.. they just do what they say they will. Additionally, they have some great specials at the moment - so even if you don't like the service it is a minimal investment. I have paid $3.48 USD for 1 x year @5TB of storage.

Happy new year!
Had the exact same experience when I saw the new pricing structure; i'm really not sure what the issue is with introducing an intermediate plan between free and 2TB. I've got no problem with paying for space, but I can't face overpaying for space I don't need.
I much prefer the way Dropbox behaves vs Google Drive, but given they offer a £2.49/month plan for 200GB I had no option but to switch to them instead. Not ideal, but perfectly good for the purpose, and saves me ~£100 a year.
Thanks DropBox for the years of sucking us in
Now you've built your database of millions of users you want to whack a fat charge on us all. If it was a more reasonable cost I'd consider staying on board...
Anyway, thanks for the journey, I'll reduce my dropbox requirement to a total minimum and get on with my other free cloud providers.
As a user that have been with dropbox since the start it´s time to say good bye...
Now using Microsoft OneDrive... 1Tb for US$ 14.50 a YEAR in Brazil (R$ 59,90) when I buy Office 365 Personal in local retailers . Dropbox is US$ 119.99 a year, so it´s 8x more expensive.
