iCloud vs. Dropbox performance with The Archive

Does anyone have evidence to suggest one is better than the other? I was using The Archive pretty heavily the other night with notes in my iCloud drive and my laptop battery was drained pretty fast. I suppose with prolonged usage, regardless of which cloud account I use, I should turn off Wi-Fi on my laptop to prevent constant syncing. Any thoughts? Thanks.


  • One advantage of DropBox for me is that it is trivially easy to pause syncing for as long as you need. No idea how easy that is with iCloud because I don't use it.

  • Thanks, Jeremy. I forgot about the "Pause syncing" option with Dropbox.
