I tried Dropbox paid against iCloud a couple of years ago. iCloud won, it works so seamlessly with all my devices. I kept dropbox on my 6 or so devices for old times sake. But, now I think dropbox became history for me. I am not looking for a way to make life more complex. Three devices just don't cut it. By Dropbox, thanks for all the fish.

I've tested several of them and dropbox is really the fastest and most reliable.

Dropbox is now at v89.3.268. - - Note that as of v88.x the web interface is dramatically different with some new features. IOW it has a learning curve. Users still have to go into Preferences to see what version they're using, which has always been stupid. The version number should be listed right next to or instead of "Up To Date" in the menu bar item. There should also be an option to "Check For New Version" see as "Up To Date" is commonly WRONG. (Example: Mine currently says it's 'Up To Date' at v88.4.172, when in fact it is NOT 'Up To Date' seeing as v89.3.268 is in fact the current version. The app could use a major overhaul. Thus I knocked off an extra star rating.

I've used DB since Oct-2012. I referred several users and have built up a nice storage space. Was a good application but now, with the 3 device limit it sucks. I just had to do a clean install on a MacBook that was a DropBox device. NOW I cannot use DB on it as I am told I am over the 3-device limit. I am screwed and will look for another cloud service or an in-home option such as a Synology NAS

why dropbox when there are external portable drives 1 terabyte, 2tb, 3tb...???? Don't like clouds. I do my own backup on my own devices. Also DB consumes a lot of memory and CPU.

Cloud backups are useful as part of any backup plan as your not-local second backup. Every backup plan must have two components: (1) A frequent local backup for ready access, preferably encrypted to prevent any access by ransomware. (2) A second not-local backup for the sake of both safety and off-site access when on the road. It too should be encrypted to stop ransomware and should be an incremental backup in order to protect old file versions and to keep bandwidth requirements at a minimum due to limited Internet speeds. - - NOTE: If only the world followed this most basic of backup requirements, ransomware would not be a thing. Shame on all computer users that don't safely backup daily! Not kidding. No one should be a ransomware victim.

Dropbox and Google are two different companies. If you're not satisfied with Dropbox you may try other alternatives available here - https://www.macupdate.com/find/mac/context%3Dsync

Getting suckier and suckier and focusing on higher pricing and still promoting useless features. And did i tell you the new desktop app is a crappy electron app.

Bye bye drop box, I have moved everything to BT Cloud (no integration with files app yet) and iCloud Drive. The features of drop box become purposeless at 3 devices. the opportunity to link 2 computers an iPad and an iPhone are no longer possible. No doubt Bezos has put up the cost of AWS or they are just greedy.
