Cloud storage


At the time of uni, it made life much easier

While studying, almost all teachers threw their textbooks and other materials into our dropbox. A very handy thing, you go from any device, from a tablet or a computer - and now everything is in front of your eyes. Not the coolest phone, of course, but it depends on which one. I was not very nimble, so I did not pull large volumes.

Simple and easy to exchange documents

Great service. We have been using it in the company for a long time. Previously used more often, because disseminated through it information about promotions and new items. In 2020 we switched to Unicraft for training. They began to use it less intensively. But nevertheless, the service did not get any worse from this. He solves his problems perfectly!

Application speed dropped to 1-4mb / sec and does not rise




download speed dropped to 1-4

Can someone tell me.

Dropbox application on the computer.

There was a speed of 10-11 megabytes, for two weeks the speed was 1-4 Mb / s and it does not rise with a speed test of 93-94 megabits .

So from the application uploading to servers 10-11 megabits, and downloading 1-4.

If you download a file through the web 10-11, and through the application 1-4 .

The provider says that these are the drop servers.

The drop says that the provider cuts.

what to do? I download approximately 20-30tb per month.

Convenient and syncs well


synchronization between multiple devices works great

you can get a lot of space for free

user-friendly interface

we also use a corporate account


Everything is OK!

Excellent file storage, convenient and reliable



  • easy to use
  • reliable

As a person who buried 4 computers at the most inopportune moment, I can say with confidence: reliable cloud storage is a very important and convenient thing.
