At CDR we no longer use DropBox (or SkyDrive) for storage of data. The prospect of it being used for reasons which it was not intended is not something which sits comfortably. Now the CDR offsite backup/cloud storage is conducted by our own host. Encrypted ahead of departure of course. You can set up your own cloud storage with OwnCloud. It’s surprisingly easy to use and you are in control. And it’s free too.
