Reasons of using Dropbox and OneDrive together
Dropbox and OneDrive are two of the most well-known cloud storages for the past few years. Storing personal data on cloud has risk in deed yet the benefit you gain overpasses its potential risk. As time goes by, an increasing number of personal and business files are created on our computers, tablets, and mobile phones and so on. We truly need more storage to keep those data safe. Except for storage on physical disk, cloud storage of various Clouds is also a good choice.
Dropbox is a powerful cloud storage which will take your docs anywhere since it supports all popular movable and unmovable platforms, PC, Mac, Android, iPad, iPhone, and Windows Phone. Surely OneDrive also provides such convenience. However, Dropbox allows you to send any kind of file from photos and music to Adobe files to friends, families or colleagues with a simple link, even if they don’t have a Dropbox account. From another perspective of view, OneDrive wins slightly at low-price storage. Once you sign up an account of Office365 currently, you’ll get much free storage. Except the difference between Dropbox and OneDrive, both of them have “for Business” plan service.
Anyway, each of them has own advantages. It is really a good plan to connect Dropbox and OneDrive together just like you connect OneDrive to Google Drive if you happen to have accounts of both of them. You can easily realize Dropbox and OneDrive sync after doing that.
