Do You Want to Access Multiple Google Drive Accounts on One Computer Mac?

I believe that a lot of Mac users have more than one (2 or multiple) Google Drive accounts and use them for personal business or work. They are most probably encounter a problem that G-Drive App, Google Backup and Sync, doesn’t offer them with function to sync directly from one Google Drive account to another though it enables them to sync multiple Google Drive accounts Mac without shifting from one account to another.

Yes, Backup and Sync is now able to sync files from computer to different cloud accounts simultaneously by “Add New Account” feature. Yet, the source folders/directories for each account mustn’t be the same. That is to say, only in different sources and different destinations, can google drive multiple accounts mac sync available.

Then, what if someone wants the same content to be saved in two Google Drive accounts on Mac? Do they have to first of all log in one Google account and sync target files from local to it. Then, log out of the account and connect to another one to sync again? No, they don’t have to! There is another way to directly sync files from one cloud to another.

How to Manage Multiple Google Drive Accounts Mac?

In the above said that there is a way to achieve cloud to cloud synchronization. To do this, you have to firstly get access to related cloud accounts in one platform.

Link Google Drive Accounts

Access multiple Google Drive accounts in one place needs a platform to link them together. Here, MultCloud, a web-based multiple cloud drives manager, is recommended.

To make use of MultCloud, first thing first, create an account of it from its official website.

Then, add your Google Drive accounts to its platform. In Cloud Explorer tab, click “Add Cloud Drives” in the left menu and choose “Google Drive” in the right cloud drive list. Then, follow the guidance to finish this operation.

Sync Multiple Google Drive Accounts Mac

Besides what you can do in different accounts above, you can also transfer files from one Google Drive to another and the most importantly sync among different accounts.

In Cloud Sync tab, choose one Google account as source in the left and another account as destination in the right.

Final Suggestions

In such way, if you want to sync the same files in local computer to both Google accounts, you can use Backup and Sync to sync the files from local to account A and then use MultCloud to sync the files from account A to account B. Finally, you have the same files on both accounts. For Google Drive sync multiple accounts, similarly, use Backup and Sync from account A to B, and use MultCloud sync from B to C, from C to D, from D to E……

Moreover, merge Google Drive accounts in MultCloud platform makes it very convenient to shift from one account to another. You do not have to log in once and once again anymore; just one sign in is once for all. It is also a merge of account storage space. Thus, you do not have to pay for extra quota; just create a new account and connect it to MultCloud together with your other Google Drive accounts and your free storage space increases 15GB. Isn’t that amazing?
