About Google Drive and MEGA

Google Drive is one of the most attractive services that Google currently offers. When setting up a Google account, you can get 15GB of free space - or link it to your existing account. The storage space of 15GB is shared across all these services, so if users have large attachments in emails, then they will be counted in. Data stored on Drive is encrypted in 128-bit AES rather than the 256-bit.

MEGA is not only designed to be an online storage provider. Instead, it works as a platform where apps can be developed to further enhance its core functionality. MEGA has three features that make it stand out from the crowd:

(1). Superior end-to-end encryption: The data is encrypted and decrypted during the transfer process;
(2). Secure global access: MEGA allows the user to access data anywhere and anytime but prevents everyone else from accessing it;
(3). Safe collaboration: Online collaboration is quite private and safe when MEGA's functions are in place. It facilitates real-time sharing of contacts and viewing updates, which is convenient for users.

Why Transfer Google Drive to MEGA?

Like these cases mentioned above, when users who use Google Drive and want to transfer or backup files to other clouds, they might choose MEGA as the target cloud. Why? Because MEGA generously offers more storage for users and users can get maximum permanent storage of 50 GB through various "achievements", such as installing MEGAsync, inviting a friend to MEGA, etc.

Moreover, its security feature allows files to be encrypted locally before they are uploaded and thus prevents anyone accessing from files without the password used for encryption.

Here are the pros and cons of Google Drive as well as MEGA, respectively.
