Personal plans with more storage

Personal plans with more storage

New member | Level 2

Hi! I used to have a paid personal Dropbox account, until I outgrew the 3TB of storage space. I downgraded to a free Dropbox account and started storing my files with a different provider. As a renewal of my subscription with this other provider is coming up mid-June, I was wondering if you are planning on implementing larger personal plans in the future? Ideally I'd love a package that has somewhere between 6 to 8TB.

 

Switching to a professional account is not an option, because:

- I already use a professional account from the company I work for, you can only use 1 personal and 1 professional account in the Dropbox software at the same time, and I don't want to upload my personal files to my company's account

- a professional account requires several licenses (3, I believe), while I only need 1

 

Therefore, I would like to suggest to implement the option to purchase a larger personal plan with more storage space than the current 3TB (of course the plan with 3TB should still exist for users who don't need more than 3TB).

My requirements for storage are much less than 1tb but I am forced to pay for wahat I don't use.   I don't want to change as I like dropbox  but the cost is too much for me to afford as I am retired with less income these days.  

Please dropbox, keep my custom and try to be responive to your user base ?  200MB is all I need, and I am sure others do too.  This looks to me the one area which you are missing out on.  Perhaps call it DropBox Light !

@Andrew Peter @You can easily get this amount of space for free; just invite your friends to dropbox and you get extra free space for each one that signs up.

@martijntulp Thanks for raising this. I have been requesting this exact option from Dropbox for YEARS - for exactly the same reasons as yours. I know dozens of other users who would welcome it… I can't imagine why Dropbox thinks such an obvious option requires more support! Just get on and offer it please Dropbox!

 I have a professional plan with the 3TB limit and it is almost full. Do I have to have more than myself in the Business Plan to go to Standard Business Plan? Basically, I would like to get the standard business plan with 5 TB with only myself.

I also would love to have an Individual (1 member) account with 4-6TB storage plan. Please make it happen.

+1. 3TB has been plenty for me for about the first year of use, but I quickly reached the limit when moving my entire workstation's data into Dropbox. As a VFX producer and photo/video professional, I'll need to scale up my storage capacity to have any longevity in this storage model. I'll have find another solution if I'll always be capped at 3TB.

I am a sole business owner and photographer and have being using Dropbox for storage. It has being excellent and at the moment on the 3TB pro individual plan. I am heading towards capacity and now have no options left.
PLEASE increase storage data for individuals and quickly before I have to find a whole new system.

For people who take a lot of high-res photos and rich video you can go through 3TB of space pretty quickly. As an individual I don't want to have to buy a business account for a minimum of 3 users. Having an option to go to unlimited storage or add a few TB would be really customer friendly.

Love this idea. Could also just lower the number of licenses for business accounts to 1 from 3.

I would just like to add my name to the list of independent photographers that need more than 3TB of storage for their individual plan. Please allow us to upgrade our individual plans to higher tiers of available space.  Thanks!
