Why did backing up files from Dropbox to Google Drive happen?

If you’re looking for free cloud storage, Dropbox, OneDrive, and Google Drive are good choices. Though Dropbox, OneDrive, and Google Drive are similar in some aspects, they are different in some certain fields.

At first you get several gigabytes of free storage just for creating an account. By installing a small Windows app you can get the ability to synchronize that storage with the hard drive on your PC, where you can manage them using Windows Explorer. You can sync and backup files and folders with other PCs or Macs, access them from portable devices, and share them with other people.

But when we dig deeper and get past those similarities, we can see important differences among these services. Reviewers love to turn this sort of comparison into a horse race where they can declare a winner. But depending on how you plan to use an online file storage service, one might be a better fit than others. In this review, I look in detail at all three services to help you make the right choice.

We have been customers and supporters of Dropbox, because it is an earlier famous cloud drive. We see how the service becomes robust, and how its reliability, sharing and team features keep the management of our documents and files simple and secure. However, the later updates of Google Drive has made us re-evaluate the functionality and pricing of Dropbox. Google Drive is more flexible because of all kinds of Google apps. And if you use Gmail, you can own a Google Drive.

So many people start to give up Dropbox and try Google Drive, then a question comes: how to backup and sync files in Dropbox to Google Drive?Manually downloading then re-uploading is undesirable since data are too big that will cost lots of time to deal with them.
