Can we have plans that are smaller than 1 TB?

Can we have plans that are smaller than 1 TB?

Hi, I find limited in the choices of subscription plans. Basic/free and Pro/110$

I'd gladly pay something like 25$ a year for 50GB and a 2 users family plan.

Considering iCloud have a 12$ plan for 20 GB and 48$ for 200GB, that seems reasonable..

In two weeks time, it'll be 6 years since this topic began. And Dropbox unwillingly response to this request is disappointing. In fact, We're not requesting for free huge storage, but we're ready to pay for the subscription for a lower-tier storage. And Dropbox is ignoring us...

I am trapped with Free Dropbox due to public outgoing links - since I am unwilling to pay $120/yr for a service way way beyond my needs.

Hi. I'm long time user of the dropbox, since 2010.


When I first encountered this service, it was really amazing. 


File sync is very reliable and fast. I don't have to carry my usb drive. 


After the success of dropbox, lots of cloud storage services are sprout. Needless to say.


But few years ago, dropbox started to increase the price of personal plan. 


And now, it reaches to $10 per month, which gives 2 TB storage.


I don't know how many users store their files over 1 TB, but do you guys think that it is little too high for the light users?


Actually, I only store some document, important photos and some backup files in cloud storage. 

The total file size is about 4 GB. Not too big. But slightly over the free plans storage limit.


Thanksfully, I've already particiated in space race event (which gives more free space, long time ago). So my storage limit is up to 6GB, but I feel this is not sufficient for my recent computer works.


I think many users have similar thought like me.


"Oh dropbox is very good, reliable and fast. But... $10/month is little high for me. How about migrate to other services. OneDrive or Google drive may be good substitute solution."


My conclusion is, dropbox should create 100GB $5/month plan for the intermediate users like me. 


If you are the only service in this field, you can do whatever you want .


But, now, dropbox need to compete with other services. And price is very important customer acquisition factor. 


Please, consider to create $5 plan. I don't want to move to other services. But $120 per year is very high to storage only 4gb of files.

I have used the free version of Dropbox for ages and it has worked well. I do not use a lot of capacity and have never exceeded the quota.

I do use it however on several computers (desk top and laptop). The 3 device limit now means that I cannot connect and sync as in the past. I keep getting requests to sign in, and when I do thjat I get a prompt to upgrade or block some of the devices I use to the 3 limit.

The problem with the upgrade to Plus is the fee of AU$184/annum, albeit this comes with 2TB storage, which is far beyond that which I need.

I have seen statisitics suggesting that Dropbox has 500 million free users but only about 13.5 million fee paying users.

The Plus plan with that fee is more suited to small business rather than private persons.

Why not develop a plan with less storage but which can be used on possibly up to 6 to 8 devices for $60/annum. 

You might find more willing to sign on to that.

Bom dia, eu gostaria de sugerir novos planos e preços. Tem outras plantaformas com planos e preços mais acessiveis. Os vossos planos sao para certas pessoas muito grandes logo muito caros. Penso que poderiam criar um plano talvez de 100 GB, por um preço menor, talvez 2 ou 3 euros por mes. Acho que teriam muito sucesso, porque eu pesno que a dropbox tem potenzial. 

É pena perderem clientes para outras plantaformas so por causa dos preços. 

Eu estou a pensar mudar por causa disso mesmo e conheço tambem outras pessoas que ja o fizeram por causa disso .

Voces so ficavam a ganhar com um plano de 100 GB,  2 euros vezes milhões de pessoas da milhões de euros. €€€€€€

obrigado e Tenham um bom dia

Well I never thought I would say this but I am going to give Dropbox a shot. Google just lost over 1.4TB of files I had. Now I back them all up anyway but I am about to live on the road full time and I need a safe place. i am also NOT happy with the fact Google has the key to decrypt my files. I have spent the past 3 hours reading multiple websites and reviews and tech docs and to quote them "dropbox beats Google Drive every single time)


So sod it. I am going to give the 2TB sub a go and see how I get on.

Would be really great if there was an option for smaller paid plans.

something like:

  • $3.99/mo for 500GB
  • $6.99/mo for 1TB

for people who maybe don't want to pay $12.99/mo for a storage solution, or don't need 2TB of cloud storage.
