    Box vs Dropbbox

    Any reason why one would choose dropbox over box?
    Box has 10MB vs 2MB.
    I'm trying to create a paperless world, cloud helps.
    Also working on multiple machines and places, it helps.
    I have a view dropbox accounts - some due to experimenting. So Box may also resolve the issue.

    Any views?

    Hasn't Dropbox just increased the 2 to 20 or something like that. I only use Dropbox and never had a problem.

    You use Dropbox for personal information which is free?
    Or business -- which I am sure there is a charge for?
    Is there a cloud site that offers free storage for businesses?

    they are both free
    you can upgrade and pay, then you get more storage and probably features
    I see that box even integrates with other cloud apps, example salesforce

    Anthony when I checked on fri the business Dropbox is 795 dollars per year. Obviously advantage is it is admin controlled whereas normal Dropbox files could be changed by anyone else that u allow access to. I use it for myself only and if staff need docs they e mail it to each other.

    I would imagine that's the big thing for business.
    Box seems to have more capability for that.
    You can elect which files/folders update.
    Allow access to different folders and different people. Seems to be superior to dropbox on a number of fronts.

    This is my goal for next week or so.
    Discipline myself to work on cloud, keep everything in one place.
    Then go paperless. I'm using a laptop and tablet at same time, so that helps, can read and research on one whilst typing on another. Will possibly look at hooking up another screen.

    Good lord. 50 G.
    Anyway space is hardly an issue, as you could just use multiple boxes. Although that defeats my objective.
