Can we have plans that are smaller than 1 TB?

Level 2

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..

Dropbox have trialled smaller plans and decided against them for a variety of reasons (including a trial last year if I remember rightly in Australia).

Simply put, it isnt going to happen, they've confirmed this on here a few times. Dropbox says that they are no longer just about the space, its the services offered so people need to be looking at the whole package.

Mark,

Thank you for the reply.  The fact that Dropbox is unwilling to offer a smaller plan to match some users' needs is very disappointing.  I'm happy to pay for additional services (even though I don't need them), but the current Plus plan is simply overkill for my needs.  It is clear that I'm not the only user in this situation.

It seems Dropbox is going after large business users, and I'm sure that makes good sense financially.  However, I'll bet a lot of the people who use their business services also have personal Dropbox accounts, and I'd imagine some of them will be disappointed to be forced into the Plus account category.

I agree, but, unfortunately its been the same since the Dropbox plans were 50gb for $9.99 (with people wanting smaller ones then).

Everytime they've trialled smaller plans so many people downgraded that they lost more money than made with new customers. I'd hazard a guess that this would be even more likely now due to the huge amount space being offered as standard.

So for you you need to think of 'is extra devices' worth the cost? If you want to get to unlimited then yes, it is. If not and you want to stick with three then stay free.

I dont need double storage, I don't want Smart Sync, and we always had 30 days backup. Can I keep my $2? 

In fact, why not drop it to $5 and make it 500gb. Must you bleed ALL your customers, even the ones who don't even agree with the $10/mo it was? I mean, I'm only using 250gb, and most of it is client garbage I'd be happy to remove.
 
Oh, better yet, make it $2.50/mo and only give me 250gb. That would be AWESOME! Google has one at 200gb for $2.50/mo, why can't you do that?
 
But you won't. Your already screwing me up big time by dropping ExFat format. You know what, your right. I'm leaving. Too many other options out there to be dealing with your greedy bull**bleep**.
