MEGA VS Dropbox
Compared MEGA and Dropbox, MEGA has some advantages that users intend to move from Dropbox to MEGA. When you first use Dropbox, you can get an account free with 2 GB of cloud storage space, and can increase up to 16 GB by referring to friends. However, MEGA gives users 50 GB of free space first. If you store many large files in cloud, MEGA is a good choice. MEGA came later than Dropbox, when you find your Dropbox is full and you don’t want to pay to upgrade, turning to MEGA is OK.
MEGA has more features. Following features are specific to MEGA while Dropbox has not:
- Selective folder sync (sync any folder on your hard drive)
- Set file sharing permissions: read-only, read/write, etc.
- End-to-end encryption
MEGA and Dropbox are very fast. If you seek for speed, MEGA will not let you down. About security, there is no doubt that MEGA beats Dropbox’s security because it promotes itself as “The Privacy Company”.
Use MultCloud to move from Dropbox to MEGA
Now that the conditions of moving from Dropbox to MEGA are favorable, let me teach you how to use MultCloud to transfer Dropbox to MEGA. Before this, let me briefly introduce MultCloud first. MultCloud is a cloud drives management web app. Put simply, it combines multiple clouds in one place, managing them together. Because in one place, moving files between cloud services saves lots of time. Migration Dropbox to MEGA has realized.
Using MultCloud is easy. You can either create an account to log in or experience without signing up first. If you choose the second way, MultCloud will provide you a random username and password.
Clouds supported by MultCloud are: Google Drive, Box, Amazon S3, Amazon Cloud Drive, SugarSync, Alfresco, Hubic, Evernote, OneDrive, CloudMe, Cubby, MyDrive, WEB.DE, Yandex, HiDrive, MySQL, Flickr, MediaFire, ownCloud, ADrive, BaiDu, WebDav and FTP/SFTP.
In MultCloud, the first step is adding cloud.(By the way, MultCloud supports managing multiple MEGA accounts, no limit.) Then do moving operations like in Windows explorer. Copy, then paste. “Copy to” option. Direct drag and drop.
If you want to move the whole Dropbox while there are large volume of files which can’t be transferred totally at one time, switch to Transfer panel, Schedule Transfer is a great choice. Import from Dropbox to MEGA will be done as you set.
Update: Now you can also sync Dropbox with MEGA via MultCloud's Sync Service.
Transfer from Dropbox to MEGA or Transfer MEGA to Dropbox, which doesn’t require downloading and re-uploading any more. MultCloud is a multiple cloud storage manager and itself doesn’t provide storage space but traffic. The ten TB traffic is enough for common use. It does not save your data, either. So feel free to use it.
