We sometimes get the question "So Degoo is like Dropbox, but more space?". The easy answer is yes. The truth, however, is that it's not like Dropbox, at all.
It's like Dropbox, but not at all!
Degoo and Dropbox differ in several ways. Degoo is purely focused on backup and Dropbox is a more complex product with features like file syncing and file sharing. Focusing solely on backup enables us to create a truly awesome backup experience without any compromises. For instance:
- It drastically reduces our server costs, which is why we can offer so much more space for free.You get up to 100 GB free on sign up with Degoo compared to Dropbox where you start of with only 2 GB.
- With Degoo you can select to backup as many folders as you like and you're not obligated to use a particular folder for your backup. You can even choose to backup your entire hard drive! With Dropbox you need to move all your stuff you want to sync or share to a specific "Dropbox folder".
- You don't have to worry about any bugs any the syncing causing data corruption. This is not just a theoretical issue. It happens from time to time with all services that offer both file syncing and backup in the same solution: http://www.engadget.com/2014/10/13/dropbox-selective-sync-bug/.
- We compress your data more efficiently and therefore use less of your bandwidth.
You can use both Degoo and Dropbox at the same time as they offer different things. Dropbox is ideal for sharing a documents with a colleague but you quickly run out of space. 2 GB is just a couple of minutes of video with an iPhone. With up to 50 times more space Degoo is perfect for storing all your vacation photos and everything else important that you don't want to lose.
