Why Backup Google Drive to Dropbox?
It is not uncommon that people hold more than one cloud account to store their personal information or business data. Google Drive, as one of the most popular cloud services around the world, has plenty of PC users due to its large capacity of free storage. Google Drive offers 15 GB free space for non-commercial use which greatly exceeds the free space offered by some of its equivalents like OneDrive. However, data that stored on Google Drive could be better protected if you back them up to somewhere else, like Dropbox.
Another reason of backing up Google Drive to Dropbox is the convenience of accessing stored files, even though it provides only 2 GB of initial free storage. Dropbox has one outstanding synchronization technology that can sync changed files to every device as long as the device has its account, so you can access files stored on your PC even when you are traveling outside.
