    I was going to use it but it wants access to all my contacts and email.

    I used to use Dropbox many moons ago, but have been solely working off Google Drive for many years now, especially now that I have a Google Apps for Education account where storage limits are infinite. As for access to my Contacts and Email... since I'm all in the Google ecosystem, they already have it all. :supergrin:

    I use it all the time. Just don't give it those permissions. I don't and no issues with functionality.
    Just like the Google drive, I don't upload anything sensitive.

    Yes I have used it for a long time . It is pretty handy for getting and sending business documents from anywhere you happen to be when not in the office.
    Like above, just don't give it access to what ever you don't want it to have.

    It's good practice to encrypt your file locally before dumping it onto Dropbox as well.
