Box vs MEGA
Box is a reliable cloud storage that put its emphasis on securely files sharing. It provides only 10GB of free storage for personal users because its most paid users are businessmen and IT experts group. Box helps you keep important files secure and back them up for free. One can easily collaborate with team members and manage employees as well as projects. However, it still has some disadvantages and that’s why some users would like to transfer files from Box to another cloud like MEGA.
10GB free storage is definitely insufficient for normal personal users, let alone businessmen. For business users, the business plan of Box is a little bit expensive since it charges by user and by month. On the other side, MEGA provides 50GB free storage even for personal users and it is a breeze to set up. What’s more, unlike Box Cloud, MEGA offers End-to-end encryption which means you data is encrypted & decrypted during transfer by your client devices only not by the provider. The paid plans of MEGA start at costs 4.99 Euro per month for 200GB. Anyhow, we can acknowledge that both of them are good cloud for personal and confidential files. Nevertheless, from the aspects of free storage and paid plans, it is not a bad idea to use MEGA and transfer from Box to MEGA.
