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 the Explorer feature in Movebot, available as part of any subscription plan. Without Explorer, 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;
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
Navigate to your Dropbox Home
In the top right corner, click your photo or avatar
In the dropdown it will show how much data you have — easy right?
