Cheaper plan OR multiuser plus

Cheaper plan OR multiuser plus

i'm a dropbox user and fan since 2011 and i just love it. it actually changed my life for the better in so many ways. i'm crazy about it! but in december it would be even crazier for me to stay a dropbox client.

on dec 2019 the plus plan is changing from 1TB to 2TB. but it can be 10TB or 100TB, it doesn't matter - i still have no more than 100GB of data. it pushes me toward moving to the competitors, but i really doesn't want to. i love my dropbox, i'm used to it and it does everything i need.

i know that dropbox will never offer a plan of less than 1TB, this was made clear since 2014.

another option that would make me a happy dropbox user would be if i could share some space with my family.

i know i can setup my account on their computers, but i don't want them to see my personal files... but i would trade 1TB from my account for just 10GB of space for each of my spouses (they have the basic plan). this way dropbox doesn't loose money on cheap accounts, i keep my paid account, my spouses keep they dropbox instead of moving to competitors, and everyone is happy!

We appreciate your feedback for the Dropbox plans and pricing.

pCloud offers both 100gb plan AND a family plan... (and prepaid lifetime option 😮)

and they are smaller and younger company than Dropbox 👀

i understand. i'm sorry but i have already moved. i'll happily move back when dropbox is a competitive solution.

I too have never needed more than 200 GB. I've been paying for the upgrade for the last few years because I LOVE dropbox (I'm familiar with the interface, like the features, and it works with every app), it was convenient because I already had a lot of things on it, and I justified it for that long because I use it for important things that I figured were worth the money. However, with the price hike, and nothing of value having been added for me, I decided that it was really time for me to move to a competitor. I'm glad Dropbox is no longer entirely dismissing the potential for a cheaper subscription like they did before. Over time, more of us will move to competitors and get used to them and Dropbox will lose a lot of customers. I personally would still move back if there was a cheaper option (I would pay $60 per year), but at these prices, it's not worth it for me.

Apple has the possibility to upgrade by 64 GB for $0,99 / month.
An offer like this should also be possible with dropbox.
I never will use 2 TB. An upgrade 64 GB would be fine.

I would pay 3-6 euros per month for a plan in 50 - 200gb range. Please consider it. Or maybe a onetime payment to upgrade basic plan to someting "basic plus" with 50 gb of storage. We have other options, but we love dropbox for years. Other options:

 

1) pCloud - they have one time payment for 500gb plan. They are wonderful, but on mac they use fuse technology and I dont trust it (with disconnection from network i seem to lose some data). For phone and windows i think they can replace dropbox just fine.

 

2) mega.nz - 50 gb for free, no file history, strange limits

 

3) other services like iCloud, google drive, one drive, box, but somehow i would like to continue using dropbox.

Please, please, please provide a smaller plan! To jump from 2GB with the free account to 2TB is unreasonable. Dropbox needs to stay with the times and meet the various needs of users (I mean, is less than 2TB of space really all that much to ask?). There are so many cloud based storage solutions, so if you think your users will just stick with you simply out of love, that might work for a while, but not in the long run. Similar to other posters, I need less than 100GB of space (it took me nearly 10 years to fill the free 2GBs on my free account) and simply refuse to pay for unecessary space. 

 

And stop with the whole "if there's enough votes for it then we'll forward it to our business team". Shame on your for not valuing ALL users' feedback. We get the message that we're not an important enough user demographic.
