Dropbox personal professional vs. business standard

Hi I would like to know how the community comparing these two plans.

I already have dropbox personal plus and my company give me a dropbox business account.

However, I really want to use smart sync in my personal folder. Of course, I can save my files in dropbox business folder, but I just don't want.

So, there are two options for me, personal professional and business standard.

I only want to use smartsync in my personal files, which option is the best? I see that business standard is even cheaper than perosnal pro... How the community members comparing two? A little bit confused.

I think your deciding factor will be that you can't buy a single license on a business account. It's minimum three, so you'll be paying for two licenses that you aren't using.

If Smart Sync is your main requirement, just go with Professional.

Hi Rich, thank you for your answer.

I forget I have another concern. I am a long time dropbox user and have an unlimited history (need to pay US$39 per year of course!)

 

If I upgrade to personal professional, will I lose this add-on of unlimited history?

Hey @chuen55
 
If you’re on a Plus account that you’ve had for a while, you can keep the type of extended or unlimited version history feature when you upgrade to Professional! Keep in mind that if at any point your account is downgraded, the old version history option will be lost, and you’ll be subject to the new 120-day limit. If you keep your account current, there won’t be a problem :wink:
 
Cheers!
