Google Drive or Dropbox?

Helpful | Level 6


I have always had a great experience with dropbox. However, Google Drive is cheaper and seems to have the edge on updates when it comes to space. They went to 2TB before DB from what I remember, out of nowhere. Anyway, that's not really the main reason I choose a syncing service but... the amount it costs per GB is important to me. As I'm sure it is with many. 

Right now, Dropbox is 20 dollars more per year than Google Drive. 

I have to choose one. 

Dropbox has:

- block syncing

- rewind

- LAN sync

This seems to make it more worth it for me - but what are your experiences and thoughts?

I like the fact Dropbox doesnt use my data to generate adverts on other websites
