What Are the Advantages of Using Remote Upload?
Nowadays, many cloud storage tools have a “Remote Upload” feature that enables you to upload images and programs from any URL to the cloud directly. This allows a much faster uploading process than uploading the actual files. Using Remote Upload has some advantages over uploading the actual files.
- Uploading URLs do not contain the lengthy URL of the original image.
- The speed will be faster than uploading the actual files.
- It helps you save space on your hard drive.
Why and How to Achieve pCloud Remote Upload Directly?
pCloud is a secure service that lets you store up to 10GB for free, which is attractive because not all cloud storage tools offer such preferential policies. As more and more files are stored on the hard disk, the unused space on the hard disk becomes less and less. To save hard disk space, we have to save files to the cloud from the URL directly. But there is a problem. Not all cloud storage tools have the ability to remotely upload URLs to the cloud.
In the following parts, we will offer you 2 simple and free ways to help you upload to pCloud via URLs, torrent files, or magnet links without downloading and uploading.
Solution 1. pCloud Remote Upload from Torrents/Magnet Links/URLs

It is well known that pCloud only supports URL upload. If you need to upload content in torrent files or magnet links directly to pCloud, you need to use the help of third-party tools, such as MultCloud. This cloud file manager not only supports you to manage cloud data but also supports you to directly upload web content remotely.
How to upload torrent files in pCloud? The following are detailed steps.
Step 1. Create one MultCloud account. Or you can click the Google, Facebook, or Apple option to get an account.

Step 4. In the pop-out window, paste the link, hit "Save to Cloud" and wait for the process to complete.
- You need to paste the link to the actual file in the field and not just the link to the webpage where that file is located.
- The form of extension name of the file must be the same as the original form, or the file will fail to be opened properly.
If you want to upload data from torrent files to pCloud, just click "Add Torrent" to choose torrent files from your computer. After doing this, MultCloud will start to parse data, and then you can choose files to download directly.
As a multiple cloud storage manager, MultCloud also provides other excellent features to help move cloud or email data smoothly and quickly.

Solution 2. pCloud Upload from URL via Built-in Feature
Luckily, pCloud just perfectly has stopped up a gap for these cloud drives. Not only does it provide much free space to attract users, but it also has a pCloud remote upload feature that most cloud drives do not have.

Step 2. Click the "Upload" icon next to "New Folder" icon and you will see the "Upload Manager" interface below.
Step 3. Click the "Remote Upload" location, put the URL that you want to upload in the box, click the "Upload" button and wait for the process to complete.
