Most users sign up for multiple Drives, among them, Google Drive and Dropbox are the two most widely used cloud services. Google Drive offers 15 GB of free storage and is charged monthly. Dropbox gives users 2GB of free storage and users can get extra space by inviting others to join this program. Each successful invitation will increase the capacity of 500MB.
