Dropbox Challenges Google And Amazon In The Cloud By Slashing Its Prices


Dropbox is making its service for Pro customers much cheaper, simpler, and better across the board, in a move announced Wednesday that’s sure to irritate Google.

Dropbox effectively consolidated its three Pro account plans — which previously offered 100GB, 200GB, and 500GB of storage for $9.99, $19.99, and $49.99, respectively — into one single plan: $9.99 a month for 1 terabyte of storage.

Google also charges $9.99 for a terabyte of storage in its Drive cloud system.

Dropbox’s new Pro plan also offers a few collaboration features, including “view-only” permissions, which is helpful for freelancers and contractors that want to show mockups to their clients without letting them make any changes. [eap_ad_2]

Dropbox Pro also lets users password-protect their links to any folders or documents, and even apply expiration dates to those items. As PCWorld’s Zach Miners points out, this would be useful for wedding photographers that only want to allow access to a particular album of photos for a limited time.

Finally, Dropbox Pro will also let you delete any Dropbox files from a lost or stolen device while keeping those same files backed up in Dropbox’s cloud, which will be a relief for many who have ever worried about losing sensitive data on a misplaced device.
