In these points DropBox is better for the purpose of folder-synchronisation:
Limits of the up- and download-Rate are configurable, SPWS has no limitations and slows down the computer .
Dropbox allows a HTTP-proxy-definition, so it is able to sync over a company-network-proxy. SPWS has no dialog for a HTTP-proxy-definition, so you cannot sync sync over a company-network-proxy. You can sync only over another internet-connection without a proxy, e.g. an UMTS-connection. But in this case you loose the access to the company-network-folders.
The configuration of DropBox is clearly structured and in spite of traffic-limitation and proxy-setting much easier, the setting of SPWS is confusing and distributed over too many windows and separated apps. It is not easy to bring 2 folders to sync with SPWS. Much easier to define folders to sync it is with SpiderOak or SugarSync (both also cannot sync over a HTTP-proxy-company-network)
In these points DropBox or TeamDrive is better for the purpose of folder-synchronisation:
In sharepoint it is not allowed to sync folders on USB-Harddisks or USB-memory-sticks, in DropBox and Teamdrive this is no problem.
DropBox and TeamDrive are portable and need no admin rights In these points Sharepoint Workspace (SPWS) is better for the purpose of folder-synchronisation:
Similar to SpiderOak or SugarSync you can select each folder separated (max. 2GB) from C:\Users\MyUser for synchronisation. In DropBox you have only one folder and subfolders, but with Dropboxifier or SymLinker or similar symbolic-links-tools you also can freely select each folder for the synchronisation with DropBox
Sharepoint Workspace (SPWS) is an admitted and an on each computer installed standard software in many companies.
