How to do Box to Google Drive migration without downloading and uploading? You will learn a free and secure way to transfer Box to Google Drive in this post.

Why Migrate from Box to Google Drive?

As you may know, Box is a well-known cloud provider with features that many cloud providers don’t have. One of the benefits of using Box comes from the fact that some cloud users are Google Docs die-hard fans, while others are Microsoft Office diehards. With Box, you can deliver content in either format working with both. However, Box can’t deal with any files larger than 5GB only if you’re an enterprise subscriber and Box’s free plan is restricted to 250MB. Under such circumstances, you are eager to find an alternative to replace with Box.

After searching for relevant information from the web, you find many users select Google Drive as the cloud storage to save files, data, picture, documents, etc. as it has the following functions that Box doesn't have:

  • It supports uploading and syncing files of up to 5TB.
  • It offers 15 GB storage space for the free users while Box starts with 10GB of storage for the free users.

At this time, you plan to use Google Drive as your cloud storage tool. But there comes a question: to manage files placed already in the Box, how do you transfer files from Box to Google Drive?

Here in this article, we will show you how to achieve Box to Google Drive migration easily with a FREE cloud file transfer service, MultCloud without downloading and uploading.
