“The Dropbox problem” is the term applied to the widespread and problematic use of consumer-focused file sync and share tools that was popularized by Dropbox, the most commonly used tool in this space. In fact, a search for “the Dropbox problem” in Google returns nearly 4,000 results.

To be fair, however, there are a large and growing number of tools similar to Dropbox that are offered by a wide variety of cloud providers. Moreover, most of these tools work as advertised – most provide users with several gigabytes of cloud storage and allow them to synchronize any file across all of their desktop, laptop and mobile platforms automatically.
