How do you transfer files from Dropbox to Box usually? Here in this post, you'll find 2 ways to help copy from Dropbox to Box.
As we all know, Both Dropbox and Box are used widely in our daily life. Usually, Dropbox is used for personal file storage of non-organization which offers 2GB free storage space, while Box is designed for business and IT users which offers 10GB free and encrypted storage space. Before doing the migration from Dropbox to Box, something you need to consider:
1. Confirm what you want to keep. It’s wiser to migrate files you need rather than transfer everything which includes some files you do not need.
2. Confirm what you need to have offline and consider what kind of files or folders you'll access when you are offline for a long time.
3. Think over which method you want to use to get your files organized in Box before actually transferring files from Dropbox to Box.
Now, here we will show you how to copy files from Dropbox to Box with two methods.
Step 1. Log in Dropbox official website.
Step 2. Select files or you can put files you need to transfer to Box from Dropbox in one folder, click three dot symbol and click “Download” button. Here downloading a folder is taken as an example.
Step 3. Log in Box official website.
Step 4. Click “Upload” feature so that you can select “File” or “Folder” to be uploaded to your Box account.
Note: If you download a folder from Dropbox official website, then it will be .zip format. Before uploading it to your Box account, you need to extract it first.
Following above steps, you can achieve Dropbox and Box migration easily. But if the data size is very large, then it will take times to complete and the most important one is that you cannot close the page until the process ends.
