People looking for a better alternative to dropbox ought to check out MEGA. They offer a free account with up to 50 GB of cloud storage, end to end encryption and and excellent syncing application, MEGAsync desktop, which is available for umpteen linuxes plus a separate package to integrate MEGAsync with nemo, nautilus etc. enabling you to sync folders and files easily and quickly. The applications work great, much better than dropbox. MEGA is faster than Dropbox and MEGAsync is updated via a MEGA's own repository enabling you to update where, when and if you want to unlike Dropbox which updates its client automatically whether you wanted it to or not. I've been using MEGA for a while and think it's a great free service. it's everthing that dropbox should have been but wasn't.
Website says Dropbox no longer supports Linux file systems.
You have more free space with Google...
Opened up a terrible security hole in my system. Dropbox is set up, unfortunately, to allow itself to automatically update itself. This is basically a remote-code-execution backdoor for Dropbox to access my system. Preventing the automatic updates is more trouble than Dropbox is worth. Alternate projects like Syncthing offer the same functionality on resources I own. Have now fully migrated.
low free space but good app
Does not work with drives formatted for LVM. So doesn't work on LVM or encrypted LVM drives. Utterly useless for those of us who use encryption.
Excellent backup system. Nice to have an install through Software Manager.
It only support Ext4. If you don't have Ext4 partition, you can't use dropbox like me :/
Was great until they accuse you of "Commercial Use" Even thought I did not use it commercially, once they have flagged you there is no return.
Just installed Dropbox (not Nautilus-dropbox) alongside Thunar-dropbox-plugin on Linux Mint 19 Xfce. Both working as expected. Expecially ICON in indicator panel does NOT have RED DIAGONAL line as happened previously
Dropbox is a must-have. There is a problem with it though:
it starts by itself on system startup very aggressively (it is very hard to prevent it from doing so, even on Linux).
But there are some workarounds, for example, I use Koofr – a very good cloud syncing application for handling your documents over several computers – and Koofr can integrate Dropbox, and I can download from Dropbox and upload to Dropbox without even installing the Dropbox app. Not to mention, that you can up/download stuff to/from Dropbox through your browser, too, when “sending” or “receiving” files from collaborator friends.
I have been using DropBox for years,, I really love it .. RECOMANDED
Best for backup
I love it!
The best cloud app
