How to find out how much data you have in your cloud

So you are either looking to move your data from one storage provider to another, or you are just a curious human wondering how many selfies, videos, music and other random files you have collected over the past ten years. Potentially you could even be leaving an organization and quickly need to backup your data before losing access!


The quickest and easiest way to find out how much data you actually have across your clouds is to use Movebot's free Discovery Scan feature. Without Movebot, you can still find how much data you've used in each cloud separately, but the steps differ depending on which platform you're using. 

This article will show you how to find out how much data you have in the following cloud providers;

  1. Dropbox

  2. Google Drive

  3. Box

  4. OneDrive



Dropbox, the first of the cloud storage platforms that created “the sync” function and have lead the charge to where we are today. Unfortunately as everyone has almost caught up, the value they once had isn’t quite there. Based on what we are seeing in our product, a lot of people are moving away from Dropbox.

To find how much data you have in Dropbox

  1. Navigate to your Dropbox Home

  2. In the top right corner, click your photo or avatar

  3. In the dropdown it will show how much data you have — easy right?

Google Drive

Google Drive is fast becoming a favorite cloud storage option for many. This could be due to people growing up with it and adopting it as their go to, businesses — especially start ups love Google, or it fits nicely with Gmail and you get a free 15GBs (more than anyone else offers for free). If you want some reasons to move to Google Drive check this article out.

Box is truly enterprise with its content management, collaboration, workflows and security offering! As it’s the lead cloud content management platform, it’s understandable a lot of organizations are moving there. Not to mention its advanced search capability, video, document or something else? No worries — it will find the topic and keywords!

To find how much data you have in Box

  1. Navigate to your Box account

  2. Scroll down to Account Details and look at Storage Used

Google Drive’s fierce competitor, the Microsoft equivalent. Great for those in the Microsoft eco-system and who have an outlook account or pay for the O365 suite. Pretty solid deal for what you pay per a month compared to the likes of Dropbox and it even has additional security via a personal vault.

To find how much data you have in OneDrive

  1. Navigate to your OneDrive account

  2. Look down the bottom left of the window

“Simple to use – outstanding support.”

Movebot's support team was legendary in their quick responses and willingness to jump on a video conference to talk through how to resolve the problems. They have deep knowledge of their product and of the file storage platforms their solution is built for. We can approach future migrations with a lot less trepidation – given the accuracy and speed of Movebot, but especially because of their support team.

“Efficient, Reliable, and Exceptionally Supported”

Movebot has been an indispensable tool for our MSP looking for an efficient and reliable data migration solution. Our experience with it across various platforms, including SharePoint, Egnyte, on-prem file servers migrating to SharePoint, and O365 tenant to tenant migrations has been exceptionally positive. Their support team is responsive, offering assistance via and Discord, which was great in a pinch.

“A Game Changer In Data Migration”

Movebot.io emerges as a frontrunner in data migration tools. Its rapid data transfers, user-intuitive interface, and compatibility across cloud platforms mark it as a standout. Added security measures bolster data protection. In the realm of data migration, Movebot.io truly transforms the landscape, offering a streamlined and elevated experience.

“Great team, great product!”

We needed a tool for moving large data sets with detailed enough logging to give us confidence in the successful move of millions of files and folders. Previous tools we used choked on large data sets (>1TB or > 1 Million files) or the logging was too simplistic for us know find errors or have confidence in deleting the source data set at the end of the migration. Movebot solved this for us.

“When you put dedication, attention to detail and quality support, you get this.”

I tried several competitors, and there was always something: lack of human contact, price, quality, speed, etc. I started looking around and ended up meeting with the VP of Sales for Movebot, he jumped on a call, and we went over the product, capability, and next steps and WOW. I have been using Movebot for a while now, and to be honest, there is no one out there doing the job the way they do.

“Amazing tool for migrations!”

Fantastic experience... We were able to do a file migration for a high-priority / high-touch client and move them to Azure AD from their on-prem environment in approximately 48 hours. The scanning and the data move itself really felt seamless. Thank you so much for the tool and to your incredible team!
