Watch out for the sync trap

Would be great if I could trust the sync feature 100%. NEVER expect the document to just sync without saving it locally or you will lose your data. If the network fails or it takes forever to sync it may lose all of your changes.

Simple & Very Useful!

This app saved my picture collection that I uploaded to it to test. Then my laptop died unexpectedly! I found out how important back up is in real life. (you'd think I knew, I have been computing since the early '90's) 10 GB is a lot for free!

feel disconnected

I cannot sync the documents with the apps only... so inconvenient, dropbox will do that for me automatically.... so does google drive, need to improve..

Was very good, now hopeless

Used this successfully for a few years but could never really work out my storage level and problem this year is much worse. Have 50GB in account but deleting files and clearing trash never reduced storage. Currently have deleted everything but still recorded as having 32.7GB three months later. Really, there are better packages on offer - not sure now that there are many worse!

Fantastic!

Box is way better than Dropbox! Thank you very much for this App.

Awesome

Beats Dropbox hands down.

Great Idea, needs work

The instructions are lacking and this app does not seem to be capable of making shared files available offline for read-only, like the android and IOS versions do. If this could be updated, this would be a great app for windows tablets like the Surface 3.

Must have for the Box user, but has limitations

This app smartly displays box files, and even allows regular saving directly to the box cloud drives without any permanent storage to the computer, which can be quite helpful for ARM based Windows devices that cannot install Box Edit. Unfortunately the application does not monitor flawlessly over long sessions and will often provide a message that the transfer failed (May be related to architecture and operating system limitations). This can be easily remedied by manual transfers, which may be somewhat inconvenient. Also contains some of the intrinsic limited understandings Box has of common file types such as *.xlsm files (macro-enabled Excel Workbooks).

Good for basic connection, but...

On the Surface 2 I am locked into a view of files and folders that only shows first 25 characters of the file name. This is frustrating and I wish we could just have a detail list view of the files like we would have in windows explorer but I see no option to do so. If they were to add different views it would be a lot more useful.

slow and pretty useless

forever loading thumbnail, complicated file sync that doesn't quite work, cannot download file. Have to switch back to other clouds. Was lured by the large storage, spent ages uploading photos, hope I still have the originals.....
