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.

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.

The dropbox client application updates, without consent from users, itself too often. It is only about 85MB but pushed updates occur so often, fortnightly often, that users download gigabytes of data over the year without knowing it often for no good reason. The updates are not incremental and involve downloading the whole application every time a small change is made. I update my dropbox file manually via my browser now due to the foregoing reasons.

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.
