MBA owners, which service do you prefer? Dropbox or Google Drive? Any real differences in usage on a Mac? Thanks!
I'm sure you know you can increase your free Dropbox storage. I'm up to 6.4GB on one account. I'm sure you can do the same thing with Google Drive.I have been very happy with Dropbox for 6 months or so, but Google Drive looks like it does the same thing and gives more free storage.
Do you ever have to edit shared documents? if yes then google docs and drive might be the best on for you. Otherwise dropbox. Both have good mac clients but neither are required to use the service.
Both are free, why don't you just try them out?
I have been very happy with Dropbox for 6 months or so, but Google Drive looks like it does the same thing and gives more free storage. Google's paid storage is also less than Dropbox's. Just curious if there are any other obvious benefits to Dropbox that I am overlooking before possibly converting over.
Um, Dropbox doesn't scan everything on your drive and sell the information on to their advertizing partners...and of course any government that might be interested in you.

There are other ways of getting more free space than just referring people. Only 1GB of my space is from referrals.Maybe he doesn't want to spam people with referrals, I don't like doing that.
Thanks for this. In addition, as a result of this thread, I decided to set up Google Drive to test it, since I already had an account I had never used. I downloaded the iPhone app, which installed without a hitch. I downloaded and installed the Mac app and when I launched it, I get this:I've done some extensive testing of DropBox, Google Drive & Skydrive for work.
So in summery Dropbox is slightly more that the others but you do get what you pay for.
