In Syncing Google Drive and Dropbox have different methods. When you do some changes in your device those changes are saved
Automatically. This file and documents are then synced within the program .
Google drive literally downloads and upload the entire documents for sync it. Sometimes you can see a delay while syncing the documents from a device. For example if we do some changes in order to see them we have close the app and reopen again to see the changes (some times).
Dropbox uses a block -syncing. Instead of downloads and upload the entire documents, Dropbox simply save and syncs, the changes made in device or documents.
This is much quicker as compared to Google drive. Dropbox block -syncing methods make changes appear and can be access more quickly, you don’t have to wait even a seconds.
This two software are cloud -based file, both have a word processor +project creation tools. The Dropbox tools called as paper, where you can create word documents with embed images, media files and calendars. It doesn’t pickup any grammatical errors while Google drive pick all grammatical errors.
Dropbox syncs is faster than Google Drive, while Dropbox syncs a file it only copies that have been changed. At first time file sync will take long time to upload changes. But after next time it update within the second.
Google Drive does not use block- level method for copying files, but it sometime cloud server run faster, the speed is negligible unless you deal with large files.
Google Drive is more secure, but Dropbox also have pretty good security for access your data both the software ask a pin or security questions but Google provide one more security to secure your data To safe your data from attacker you need to encrypts your data, sometimes google scan your data to keep them away from attackers. While Dropbox do the same thing but not marvelous as Google do.
Both Google Drive and Dropbox work well good for storing files and documents in the cloud rather than on your drive.
And Google Drive is best overall, while Dropbox have fast syncing methods.
