Google Drive vs Dropbox: Storage

Google Drive Storage

Google’s free account gives you 15 GB of storage space with option to increase storage to 30 TB of storage.
On thing to note here is that the free storage (15 GB) is shared across your entire Google account and services.
This includes things like email attachments and photo backups.

If you require unlimited photo backup service, Google has you covered with Google Photos, where you can store unlimited photos up to 16MP and unlimited videos up to 1080p.
Of course, you can also upgrade for more storage plans to a paid Google One account.

Dropbox Storage

Dropbox’s free account includes 2 GB of space with options to increase the storage to 3 TB.

You can also get more storage into your account (maximum free storage capacity of 16 GB) by adding friends to Dropbox.
Each friend added to Dropbox will earn you 500 MB that is added to your account.

If you need more space you can always upgrade to either a Dropbox Plus or a Dropbox Professional account.
