Why is it necessary to link Dropbox to Google Drive?

Dropbox came out earlier than Google Drive. Since a cloud drive is so handy nowadays as it saves space on users’ portable drives, mobile phones and computers; it syncs and backs up all your files throughout all your devices, its cross-platform compatibility and best of all, you can get storage space for free(larger space may be paid). Sharing big or multiple files is also made easy while it securely keeps your files away from public computers.

The question is, with the release of Google Drive, especially the desktop sync app for Google Drive which is a Dropbox killer. Google Drive obviously makes the most sense if you’re already using Gmail or Google Apps. The survey shows that people usually use Dropbox for their Microsoft Office documents and Google Drive to store Google documents before. But now, Google has added the ability to store any type of file on Google Drive, not only Google Docs, but also Word and so on. So I said Dropbox killer above.

The fact is that many people still use Dropbox, for personal or business use. They seem to have an affinity to Dropbox but most users face a problem of how to backup or sync data between DropBox and Google Drive. If only there were an application that links Dropbox to Google Drive! MultCloud would be a great Google Drive Dropbox integration tool that manages them in one interface.
