Cloud services are specially used for accessing files from anywhere and anytime. If you didn't like your cloud service provider or in uncertain situations, you may have to move your files from one cloud service from another. Though Google Drive provides more cloud storage space than Dropbox, people love Dropbox as it is has a simple interface to use. Not only this reason but also, it conducts quests and gives other offers to extend the storage of the cloud space. I just went to buy a Sony smartphone recently. The phone provided me a offer that if I use an application for Dropbox available in the phone, I can get 25 GB of free cloud storage space for 3 years. his offer really attracted me.

An online medium, SMEStorage can be used to transfer your files from Google Drive to Dropbox. Rather, it is better to say that you can transfer files with more than 30 Cloud services. You may not only transfer files from Google Drive to Dropbox but also vice versa, that is from Dropbox to Google Drive. Like wise, you may transfer your files from or to Windows Live SkyDrive, iCloud, CloudMe, Amazon S3,  HP Cloud, OpenStack Swift Storage and more.
