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!

  • We have focused much of our effort on reducing 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 3 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. 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.

Conclusion

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. 3 GB is just a couple of minutes of video with an iPhone. With up to 30 times more space Degoo is perfect for storing all your vacation photos and everything else important that you don't want to lose.
