User Case

“Hi, in my company we decided to migrate from dropbox cloud to Gdrive. We have a large amount of files on Dropbox(about 3.5 TB of data) consolidated under one account. We need a fast transition from this account to another (single) account Gdrive (possile days, not weeks: faster is better). After that, we leave dropbox and stay on Gdrive. So it will be one short operation.

As the data is very large, downloading and uploading way to migrate Dropbox to Gdrive is not the best way because it will take stimes to complete and it will take a lot of energy to do this work. Is there any way that can transfer large data from Dropbox to Gdrive directly?”

I saw this problem online. If you just want to transfer a small amount of data, then downloading and uploading can still be used. However, for such a large amount of data, it is obvious that other transfer methods are needed to complete the data migration quickly.

Luckily, we will recommend a FREE cloud to cloud file transfer manager tool, MultCloud to you.
