Cloud Backup & Storage V: DropBox

In keeping with our look at popular cloud backup services today we’re going to take a look at: Dropbox. If you need a primer on backups in general start here.

Free Storage Option: 2GB

Paid Storage Option/Annual Cost: 1TB / $129-$279 per year depending on the tools you need.

Compression: No

JPG Support: Yes

TIFF Support: Yes

RAW Support: Yes

Device Support: Don’t worry about it. It’ll work on your stuff.

Ease of Backup: Automated

Ease of Restoring: Automated

Other Benefits: Good for backing up just about anything.

Privacy: Great!

Licensing: Users retain licensing rights and ownership of their photos and files. (Yay!!)

Just wish that the pricing/storage options for this service were more competitive with other options we’ve looked at. 1TB for $129/year is not much if you wish to backup RAW files.

Next week, we’ll take a closer look at iCloud.
