I was pleasantly surprised today to receive an email message from Dropbox announcing a major price DECREASE. I am a Dropbox Pro subscriber and have been paying $9.99 per month to store up to 100 gigabytes of data. Now, for that same price, any Dropbox Pro subscriber can store one terabyte. That’s ten times the storage at no increase in price. I am surprised.
Admittedly, I recently switched from Dropbox to Google Drive. (See my earlier Plus Edition article about that by starting at http://wp.me/p5Z3-rf.) However, I am always pleased to hear of any price reduction in online storage. I know that other providers will have to match the pricing sooner or later in order to be competitive. My Dropbox Pro subscription hasn’t expired yet so I am going to closely watch what happens to Dropbox competitors’ pricing before the expiration date. I will then decide whether or not to renew.
Every genealogist needs to keep backup copies of all genealogy data, preferably at a highly-secure, off-site location, where it is safe from fires, floods, burst water pipes, and other in-home disasters. At these prices, it is easier than ever to add backupinsurance for your data.
