  • For “Cloud Transfer”, it can backup entire FTP as the source. If you want to back up some folders only, you need to select folders that need to back up as the source. You may need to know that “Cloud Transfer” does not support transferring files. If you want to transfer files only, it’s recommended you use the “Cloud Explorer” feature.
  • If you want to back up files from FTP to Google Drive regularly, you could enable “Schedule” so MultCloud can run your task as planned. Currently, “Schedule” can help you set up an automatic task in Once/Daily/Weekly and Monthly mode.
  • For a premium account, MultCloud uses 10 threads to transfer files at once. If you want to test the super-fast speed, you could also upgrade your account to a premium account.


As you can see, backing up FTP to Google Drive is really easy with MultCloud. After following the above steps, you may find MultCloud has not asked you to install any apps on your computer.
