Drop box looks like a good thing to have for storeing large data files.

Does data protection only come on the paid business version or on the free version also?

 

Thank you.

I would hope that they have the data protection on the free version as well.  This to me would cause a security risk for everyone else, unless they have the free version on a completely different server that has nothing to do with any of their other versions.  How do you break into a network, The Weakest Link...

That is what I was thinking but could not tell for certain from their literature on the web site.

As far as I can remember, data protection is standard in Dropbox. The problem with the free version is you get very little free space for storage, so really large files will fill it up in no time flat.

You would be better off getting something like "Mega" which gives you a large amount of free space, and the option to sync with other computers and devices for free. It does everything dropbox does!
