Interesting .... I was informed, as small business owner we would need to buy more licenses .... + half of what we have at the moment, which is NO WHERE near +250.

Drop Box has to get their story aligned.

 

I don't believe that our files are secure in the USA.

 

We're now getting a server installed in our office.

We're sorry that we have to leave Drop Box Business but this is absolutely unacceptable ....

As a small business owner based in Europe and therefore not important to Dropbox I've downgraded my plan...

I think that a reasonable price increase would be acceptable to many small businesses, but Dropbox never gave the small business owners a chance.

I looked and found another solution.

Just an update on this matter, the requirements for Dropbox Business teams to store their data on an EU server has been reduced to just 15 licenses.
 
If there are team admins interested in this option, they’ll need to get in contact with the sales team directly.

Can you cite the specific rule that states that?

I just dont understand how that is possible since there are US based companies that service the EU and store data in the US and other countries outside the EU.

Has the required number of licences for EU server placement been reduced further since this comment?
