Frequently asked questions

A user is any person or role on your team with a unique email address. Each team member should have his or her own user license. Users can link their Dropbox accounts to as many of their devices as they’d like (PCs, phones, tablets, etc.) at no additional charge.

Dropbox Business provides three plans to fit your team’s needs. The Standard plan gives your team 5 TB of shared storage. For teams needing more space, the Advanced and Enterprise plans provide as much space as you need.

With Dropbox Business, you get even more security and collaboration features for your team. These additional features include longer version history, more space, email and chat support, and admin management tools for better control and visibility. Compare Dropbox Business and Dropbox Plus here.

Standard provides teams with 5 TB of storage and simple sharing and collaboration tools. For teams needing more storage and security, Advanced provides as much space as your team needs in addition to sophisticated admin, audit, integration, and security features. Learn more about our plans here.

If you already use Dropbox, moving to a Business account is easy! All your content will stay the same — your files will stay where they are, and all your settings (like shared folder relationships and linked devices) will remain the same. For admins, all your team members who already use Dropbox will have that same experience, and anyone without an existing Dropbox account will be prompted to sign up when you send them an invite. For Plus users who switch to Dropbox Business, any remaining credits will be returned as a pro-rated refund to the original payment method.

No prior knowledge required! But to make sure you’re taking advantage of everything Dropbox Business has to offer, we suggest checking out our admin and user guides. Start your free trial.

Absolutely! As long as your team admin permits external sharing, you can share with any Dropbox user, even if they’re not a member of your Dropbox Business team. However, shared folder members who are not on your Business team will be limited by their own storage quotas. So while your team members will have more space to add and edit files in a shared folder, Dropbox Basic or Plus users will be restricted by their personal quota.

Yes. The Dropbox Businessbase package includes 3+ users, but you don’t need to use all the licenses right away. Since licenses can be reused, many of our customers reserve extra licenses for contractors or clients.

Sharing and collaboration are just as easy with Dropbox Business as they are with Dropbox Basic or Plus. You can add collaborators to shared folders so they always have the most up-to-date versions of files they’re working on together, or you can send a copy of a file or folder instead. Plus, with Dropbox Business, admins can control sharing permissions and see audit logs of sharing activity.

Yes! Please contact our sales team for more information. To provide the discount, a sales rep will need a copy of your 501(c)3.
