Upgrading from DB Plus to Family seems expensive for what you get in return. Am I missing something?

Upgrading from DB Plus to Family seems expensive for what you get in return. Am I missing something?

Explorer | Level 4

I just got a notification that I can now upgrade my current Plus account to a family account, and thus share a Dropbox storage with up to 6 family members.

That sounds interesting, but when I looked further into the details of the offer it would cost me 80€ more, and I get no extra storage for that. The only thing we would gain is ... access rights for 5 additional people. To the same amount of storage as I have now. For almost double the price. Am I missing something?

Thanks Lusil, that indeed answers my question.

So the family plan contains:

Dropbox Family is a plan with shared storage space of 2TB that can be used by up to 6 members, age 13 and older.

With the Family plan, each family member has

- their own Dropbox account where they can securely store and organize their files and folders

- the ability to share files and folders with other users

- access their content from a variety of devices with the Dropbox desktop app, mobile app, and on dropbox.com.

 

At this moment all my family members already have a free Dropbox account, with which they can already do all of that. They do have less storage space, but that 's all the difference.

 

Now I pay €120/year for 2TB of storage. What upgrading to a family plan would mean to us is that we don't get much extra. Only my family members get to share my current storage. That's not much for €80.

So I think I'll skip this one, thanks.

No worries, @Siska. Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback with us!

 

As I said previously, if anything else comes up in the future, we're only just a post away. 

 

In the meantime, I hope you have a wonderful day ahead!
