Editors' Notes

We’d be lost without Dropbox—it’s an indispensable part of our digital toolbox. But for all its usefulness, the thing we appreciate most about this cloud-storage app is how little we have to think about it. Whether we’re sharing documents between devices, uploading photos directly from our camera, or emailing large files to friends, it all just works—seamlessly and effortlessly.

Wonderful!

All I want to do is move my files out of dropbox into my ordinary device storage. It only gives me the option to download and view my files inside the app. I need it outside the app to use it to edit videos, transfer it to other mediums, like my usb flash drive. I feel like my own property is being controlled and quarantined away from me. I feel angry. EDIT!: I am happy! I have found out how to properly download my files. I click ”...”, then I click “export”, then I click “open in...”, then I can save to my iphone, copy to my Google drive and do what I want. Thank you!

Account restriction work around

The app has been updated to restrict the number of devices that can be connected to an account. Probably because quite a few people have a large chunk of free storage which they share across a number of devices which brings little or no revenue into Dropbox.

The work around is to create a shared folder and create a second account. Log some of your devices into this second account. You are then back to sharing the data across 6 devices. Create a 3rd account and this gives you 9 devices and so on.

If you have buckets of data this won’t work by 2GB is quite a sizeable chunk to share.

For archive info use One Drive or some other slower package and keep Dropbox for the current on the fly info you need.

It can be a bit of a faf but it keeps it free to users.

If you need access to lots of large data over the web consider using something like Western Digital Cloud. There is an initial outlay but the data is stored in a known location - your home. It can be configured to auto backup you PC and give remote access to all of your files.

You could also share the space with your friends and everyone wins.
