Several years ago I weighed up my options and concluded that Dropbox was the best Cloud storage provider for my growing needs. A large part of this decision was that I found it to have increasingly excellent photo upload/storage/management tools. The greatest bulk of my storage is taken up with photos and videos which I want to keep safe and also be able to share easily.
Dropbox has ever since been slowly removing all of the functionality which made me choose them in the first place. Removing the Albums is the last straw. I am a paying customer and I find the lack of communication insulting from a company I had previously had nothing but praise for.
There has been no viable alternative provided for me to have been able to keep my album structure - it was simply not practical to download all the 200GB worth of photos as individual zip files of 1GB onto a harddrive, reorganise them into folders and then re-upload them again. Not to mention the issue of duplication of photos featuring within multiple albums.
It is very sad to lose trust in a company I have been loyal to for almost 10 years. I can see no way of recovering my recently paid yearly subscription, so it looks like I will have to soldier on with a solution no longer fit for my purposes, but I will more than likely jump ship to Google as soon as I can.
I have been trying to download my albums for over an hour now... not happening
I have spent hours organising my photos into albums, looks like I have lost everything
The only reason I upgraded my db was to keep my photos safe and off my PC and be able to organise them easily,
what a joke
Will be cancelling both business and personal accounts
I am using Flickr which is great at making and sharing albums. However, still trying to work out how to keep the titles captions when downloaded.
As I have feared they have completly killed Photo segment of their bussines.
A sad, sad day for Dropbox users worldwide.
