Both Dropbox and Google Drive are useful
Why merge Dropbox and Google Drive? No single cloud drive can do everything, because not all cloud storages are created equal. For example, you keep documents on Google Drive, pictures on Dropbox and videos on OneDrive. However, if your data are not very big, instead of transferring files across cloud services, you can use just one service for storage and the rest for mirror backup. If one service goes down or loses your files, you can retrieve them from the others.
You get 2GB from Dropbox (upgradeable to 16GB through referrals), and 5GB from Google Drive initially. Because nobody is forcing you to store data on Dropbox or on Google Drive alone, and along the way you assemble tips and hints for the performance of each cloud storage, we can use Dropbox and Google Drive together to get lots of free storage.
