These buttheads require 3 licenses for their unlimited storage plan

Anyone happen to need unlimited storage at $240/yr?

$240 will buy you a 6 TB drive, free and clear.

Sooooo, I can't think of any reason why I would need to pay $20 a month to store data online.

I don't think the "hard drive is better than cloud" argument can be won here.  I would choose optical storage if I went that way.

Yeah, not having to carry around a HDD means cloud wins for storage with me. I keep a single 1tb HDD just for large install files and testing files. I regularly install/ uninstall Autodesk products and have to swap the same files between multiple Virtual machines (and have no server infrastructure.) That's the only advantage to the HDD for me. Other than that things go up into online storage.

Dropbox doesn't care about files of, er, questionable legitimacy?

I can't imagine why they'd care unless you started sharing them.

I would not recommend storing anything SUPER illegal or publicly posting links to anything that's regular illegal.

Haha, I was just reading through the coverage (I worked on some of this stuff) and reflecting on the fact that it's the exact opposite of what you're looking for (i.e. more features rather than more storage).   awesome, for real

For the amount of storage you want, you might just want look at something like AWS. Though your outbound bandwidth charges might get a little nuts, it would probably still not cost you much more than Dropbox.

I'm not even sure who needs those features (but not more space).

I just looked 'em up because I was pretty sure you'd end up paying more that way, and sure enough AWS charges $23.50/mo for 1TB of standard storage.   awesome, for real  There's a reason Dropbox moved its backend off of Amazon.

To be fair you can probably pare those costs down by fine-tuning your specific storage/access plan and shuffling stuff between different tiers but at that point you're basically writing your own storage system.

Ahh, see I am not used to looking at their pricing scheme outside of the academic pricing we get.

You can also get unlimited storage with Google if you can get 5 people for $120/year per person. So, pick your poison.

Dropbox isn't a startup anymore. It hasn't been for a while. That featureset is just wheelspinning without a full understanding of regular OR power users.
