  • Gain Better Collaboration

Compared to MEGA, Dropbox assembles both Microsoft Office and Google Docs well. You are allowed to work on a Word or Google Docs file. In this way, you could collaborate on the file with other Dropbox users and save the changes without leaving your Dropbox account. Therefore, it’s better for you to transfer MEGA files to Dropbox to gain better collaboration with your team.

  • Manage Files through Clouds

In view of the fact that MEGA offers you 20 GB free storage with great privacy, while Dropbox only provides 2 GB free storage to you but with better team collaboration, you are very likely to store your private files in MEGA and use Dropbox for work. So, there is no doubt that you could manage personal files and work files better through your cloud drives after learning how to transfer files from MEGA to Dropbox.
