We gave up Dropbox and moved everything to Google Drive. I think the two tools are pretty much identical.

I tried to use Google Drive, but I don’t like the UI. I was a very early user of Dropbox and have a lot of space. Dropbox is also very intuitive and well organized.

Dropbox has a much nicer version control setup than Google Drive. Dropbox’s OSX app is also better. It is great that it can be used on your computer and not only on the cloud.
