Dropbox vs Google Drive

Dropbox is released earlier than Google Drive. Google Drive, as a rising star, has many attractive aspects. For example, its price is cheaper than Dropbox. People can directly edit Google document in Google Drive. There are many Google apps that make Google Drive easier and more interesting to use. But we must admit that Dropbox is more professional than Google Drive, and Google Drive still has a long way to go before it can take Dropbox’s place as king of the cloud storage markets.

Many Dropbox users want to try the new Google Drive, they asked how can they export files from Dropbox to Google Drive on forums. There are many answers. One is downloading target files from Dropbox to local disk then re-uploading to Google Drive. I don’t suggest using this way, because it will waste lots of time. Now, with the development of software engineering, a multiple cloud storage manager called MultCloud emerged!
