You can earn more space by referring your friends to Dropbox or need to buy their pro plans to get more space. If you plan to leave Dropbox for a better cloud storage service, this article could help you.
when you decide it’s time to say Dropbox to a cloud storage service and move to another, the most difficult is moving your complete data’s from Dropbox to that service.
You need to download all your data locally and uploading them to another service. This is a bit difficult to do. But if you plan to move your Dropbox files to pCloud, it’s really easier than you imagine. Here are the steps.
1. Open your pCloud
If you don’t have a pCloud account, just create an account from pCloud.com and you will get a clean 10GB free storage space.
2. Start Dropbox backup
