Why transfer files from Dropbox to Google Drive?
Recently, the need for online storage has grown by leaps and bounds. With the increasing demand for storage services, services like Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive have become popular in the market. With online cloud storage services, it is convenient to store data online and can expand local storage space on your devices.
As one of the most popular cloud storage drives, Dropbox provides users with many convenient features. It offers 2GB of free storage, and once you invite a friend to Dropbox, you can get an extra 500MB of storage space. The maximum free storage is 19GB.
However, you may don’t want to spend time expanding free storage and want to find a cloud drive to replace with Dropbox to store your files. In this case, Google Drive offers 15 GB of free storage and it can be the best choice. You can see the difference between Dropbox and Google Drive below.
|Free Storage||2 GB||15 GB|
|Speed||Faster (block level sync)||Low|
|Upload Size Limit||Unlimited (desktop app) 50GB (web app)||Files:100MB; Others:15TB; (desktop app) 50MB-100MB (web app)|
|Free Expandable Storage||√ (maximum 19GB)||–|
|Integrated Tools||Microsoft Office||Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, etc.|
