MEGA Vs Dropbox Vs OneDrive Vs Google Drive

Cloud storage is one of best innovations in the tech space. It brings the convenience to everything.

Instead of copying crucial documents to flash drives or burning them to disc, you stick them in the cloud where they can easily be accessed any time.

Cloud-based storage knows when you’ve updated a file and updates its copy accordingly.


Cloud computing is getting stronger by day and this is being facilitated by price wars and continuous upgrading of various cloud storage services.

Below is a comparison of  Mega, Dropbox, Google drive and One drive.

  1. The dropbox app prvides .gif support and google drive has .webm support. I don’t know about the other two.
    This should be updated to include file type support (for iOS and other mobiles)

  2. Imo mediafire is like mega but it works better on the browser, also 50gb free.

  3. Not accurate anymore. Onedrive gives 5GB instead of 15GB. Also I know dropbox at least had trouble synching to EFS encrypted folders. I.e. the files showed up in your local folder but weren’t encrypted–regardless of the folder settings.
