How Migrating From Box to Google Drive Can Transform Your Business
Google Drive is attracting much attention from businesses across the globe. Its popularity emerges from the benefits of the cloud office suite, such as the potential to boost productivity while maintaining cost flexibility.
Despite the pandemic forcing businesses to work remotely, companies of all sizes, from small businesses to Fortune 500 corporations, have migrated from Box to Google Drive to collaborate more effectively.
As long as switching to Google Drive is beneficial to your business in multiple ways, transferring files from Box to Google Drive shouldn’t be a challenge as there are several third-party migration tools available on the market.
Let us delve into how migrating from Box to Google Drive can help businesses accelerate their digital transformation goals.
Reduce Company’s IT costs
Migrate from Box to Google Drive lowers the cost of acquiring additional communication tools. Google Drive, included as part of Google Workspace, offers a bundle of apps for a single subscription, reducing IT costs and simplifying communication and collaboration without switching between different platforms.
As a result, businesses of all sizes are increasingly migrating from cloud storage only services like Box to a cloud office suite like Google Workspace to leverage the full potential of Google apps such as Gmail, Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Forms, Sites, Calendar, Chat, Meet, etc., to achieve full digital transformation.
Improve Team Collaboration and Productivity
Google Drive contains the essential collaborative tools like Gmail, Calendar, Meet, Chat, and more than your team requires daily, which Box lacks. It connects effortlessly with various additional useful tools you may want to add to your toolbox. Collaboration enables people to work together better, avoid silos, and be more productive.

Better File Sync and File Upload Limit
Box and Google Drive have different daily file sync and file upload restrictions. Box only supports syncing 100,000 files and up to 100GB, whereas Google Drive syncs 750 GB per day, after which you will be blocked from uploading more files until the next day.
Depending on your account type, the maximum file size you can upload to Box varies. The maximum file size you can upload in Box is 150 GB, while Google Drive allows you to upload a maximum file size of 5 TB.
|Feature ||Box ||Google Drive |
|File Sync ||100 GB ||750 GB |
|File Upload ||150 GB ||5 TB |
From the above table, Google Drive syncs more data per day and allows you to upload larger files compared to Box. As a result, businesses with huge demand to upload large files are recommended to use Google Drive.
Schedule and Manage Tasks Better
Google Drive comes with an efficient and streamlined calendar app for free, which you can use to schedule and manage your daily tasks effectively, whereas Box comes as a standalone cloud storage-only service.
Workday planning can be made easier with Google Calendar. It can help you schedule meetings more efficiently, set meeting reminders, create a daily agenda, and schedule tasks. You can use Google Calendar to share your and your team’s working hours, view your calendar when you are offline, create video conferencing links, and much more.
