2m for 100m funding is not a good return on investment.
perhaps there is a mistake in your numbers?
Re: 2m for 100m funding is not a good return on investment.

Never once had a problem with Dropbox, but the life of me I just can not get Box to sync properly via their app. A great shame - I am sure it is just as good as Dropbox.
They've recently increased their free plan's storage limit to 50GB. I'm hoping that this drives Dropbox dot do something similar.
You need to use the Box web interface..

"An alternate approach is to put files into a virtual reservation"
"An alternate approach is to put files into a virtual reservation in a company’s data centre with user access through the file sync'n'sharer’s end-point agent software." Is this correct? Are you talking about Box here?
I’m hoping Box stops this free storage nonsense and that Dropbox doesn’t follow suit.

Someone has to pay for it and it’ll be the businesses, especially because they will have to raise prices if people actually use the free storage. Maybe I’m a biased business owner, but it’s not a problem that I’ve enjoyed dealing with lately.
