'Box'_anyone?
« on: February 14, 2013, 04:41:10 PM »
Manager here downloaded a file for prepress crunching. Said it was from a site called 'Box'. He was raving about it. Anyone used it? Like?
I'll have a 'net search on it, but if someone here's used it...

I use Dropbox, and like it. I think "Box" is a little more Cloud like. Looks pretty slick.

Drop Box is okay when the people that use it clean it out. I've had customers call me fuming pissed because I dumped their files.

I prefer www.wetransfer.com these days. Pretty quick, 2 GB cap and no sign-ups or ads.

I have both a dropbox account and a box.com account

box.com is letting anyone that signs up with the android app have 50 GB of storage for life for free

I first went with box (when it was box.net) because it allowed you to share calendars

So that sounds like a great deal so I signed up. I only got 5 GB. It seems that offer expired on March 23rd, 2012.

Sorry about that  :embarrassed:

They had another one going with 50 GB but you had to have an account with Dell.
