Comparison

The MediaFire Desktop application requires about 1GB of the system memory and at least 600MB of the system’s hard disk space including the space a user will store their account’s information. This might seem like high usage of the system resources, but considering the numerous features the application will be offering, it is far better placed than any other application in its category

This makes the MediaFire Desktop application exceptionally reliable. However, MediaFire desktop client doesn’t incorporate documents like Google Drive does; it will still give you the ultimate cloud file sharing experience.
