We use Google Drive as it is way cheaper to use than any other tool.

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

We moved everything to Google Drive from Dropbox. It has everything we need. We did it because I didn’t like to have copies of all of our files on every computer locally. Also, with Dropbox, not everyone had access to the documents because it is expensive to open new accounts. Google Drive is fairly intuitive.The collaboration tool of Google Drive is so much better.

Google Drive - Best File Sharing Tools for Startups

Google Drive is a cloud-based file-sharing and storage platform that functions as a repository for all Google Apps, allowing you to upload and access your files for easy access from any browser or mobile device. Google Drive makes real-time collaboration a breeze, though the foremost complaint among the Stacklist community is Drive’s file organization; many founders feel that files can quickly become chaotic and disorganized, making Drive an unsustainable choice as they scale. Qualms aside, Google Drive is still the most popular file-sharing tool among the Stacklist community because of its strong collaborative capabilities and seamless integration with other Google products.
