Dropbox is a cloud-based system that allows you to save, upload and access files remotely. User-friendly, it’s a storage option that syncs teams and makes files available across all of your devices. Instead of saving assets on hard drives and memory sticks that can get lost, Dropbox frees up space to make room for better collaboration. Here we look at three features that could work well for your business.

File recovery for improved asset maintenance

A cool feature of Dropbox is the ability to recover files – 60 days for basic packages and up to 180 days for professional and business users. How much time you have to recover your information will depend on the entry package you choose. When handling large volumes of digital assets files can get misplaced and theft can occur. Knowing there’s an option to retrace your steps and make sure final versions are no longer raw assets helps teams thrive together.

3 features of file recovery:

  • Latest file history recall
  • Undo and restore
  • Edit and delete warning messages

  • Sign in from any location to wipe individual devices
