Box vs Dropbox

Two famous cloud drives’ name include the word - box, they are Dropbox and Box. Cloud drive likes a box, it is a virtual box for storing your data in remote server, and you can access to your data in the cloud through Internet on any device. Cloud saves the storage on our local disk. And sometimes it is safer than storing in local hard disk.

Dropbox and Box have their own advantages. Which one is better? There is not a right answer. People choose them according to their needs such as storage, speed, price, etc. We think make Box and Dropbox integration is better, thus, you don’t have to give up any one. Only integration is not enough, you should also able to sync between Box and Dropbox. A tool with these functions is practical. Fortunately, MultCloud is designed for completing such tasks.

How does MultCloud works?

MultCloud is a platfrom to combine all your cloud services in one place. Not only cloud drives, it also supports FTP, WebDav, MySQL and so on. You can add unlimited Box and Dropbox accounts into it. MultCloud can manage your files in cloud: delete, rename, cut, copy, preview, share, etc. But it can’t modify the content in your cloud. Although MultCloud can do some external operation to files, it doesn’t say MultCloud will save your data. MultCloud is not a storage. Link to MultCloud need your authorization, you can cancel the connect to MultCloud at any time as you wish.

The core function of MultCloud is transfer. Sync based on transfer. Transfer is one-way transfer, but sync has one-way sync and two-way sync. If you only plan to migrate content from Box to Dropbox, MultCloud’s Cloud Transfer Service will help you a lot. If you want to sync between Box and Dropbox, please switch to Cloud Sync Service.
