Questions about to start Advanced plan

Questions about to start Advanced plan

Hello.

My team is considering transfering data from Google Drive to Dropbox, so have some question.

 

1. My team has over 10PB of total data in Google Drive at the moment. How much capacity of cloud storage from start when we subscribe Advanced plan.

2. Is it possible to start with more capacity than normal when we start to subscribe?

3. Is it possible to transfer multi million files by basic function in Dropbox? (https://help.dropbox.com/create-upload/copy-from-google-drive)

4. Is there any limitation requesting more space when it reached max, and any auto expand option?

 

Thanks.

Hi there @saibi, thanks for posting on our Community and happy Friday!

 

I'm not sure I understand your first and second questions; could you elaborate a tad for me please?

 

When it comes to your third concern, you should be able to achieve this in smaller batches as I don't believe the integration would be able to handle that much data or such a large number of files.

 

As for your last question, are you referring to the Dropbox for Business Advanced plan and the option to expand your account's quota when the limit has been reached?  

 

Let me know more information and we'll take it from there.

I apologize for not providing enough information in my previous question. To further clarify, I would like to know if it's possible to start with a larger amount of default storage capacity when subscribing.

The reason behind this is that our team has over 10PB of data on Google Drive, and if we were to initiate a transfer, it would quickly fill up the storage space. Requesting additional storage space too frequently would be inconvenient for both the requester and the person handling the requests.

Thank you.
