Anyone who thinks ANY company, public or non-profit, large or small, will protect your privacy is naive. Not always their fault, but at some level each will cave. "Cloud" is the worst thing to happen to privacy since Facebook. If you don't take precautions, noone else will.

That's a very arrogant opinion. I personally find dropbox very convenient for sharing files and easy to manage. Maybe you need to be cautious in sharing more private files maybe even encrypting them, but to say that they don't have a place at all is just silly.

I mean handing over data that you think was encrypted, completely unencrypted.. Take Blackberry for an instance.. all the data that goes through their servers is encrypted.. They stated that there's way's to get the data but its against "Policy"
If you place something encrypted on their servers without using their algorithms, then your all set
I find working with Dropbox easier and it is not only about security.

And especially since Dropbox has integrated with GroupDocs, my nightmares of having to sync files from one platform to the other are over. I open my Dropbox files directly from GroupDocs account and edit those without much hassle. I would definitely vote in favour of Dropbox for giving a great solution to the users. The details of this integration can be followed from here:
