Have more than one backup
Nowadays, more and more people prefer saving files in cloud storage because it saves much space on local hard disk. OneDrive, formerly known as SkyDrive, seems an ideal backup solution. It is intrinsically linked with Microsoft. If you have a Microsoft email account -- Outlook or Hotmail, you already got OneDrive, as well as access to Office Online. But, OneDrive shouldn’t be your sole backup for data.
Figuratively speaking, for the sake of data security on a hard disk, a lot of people will regularly backup important documents to an external drive or anywhere else. Similarly, syncing files from OneDrive to another cloud can be one effective way to avoid file loss. Since there are numerous clouds on the market, which one is better? How about backing up OneDrive to Dropbox?
Dropbox is a well-known cloud service which owns the interface you’d expect from a desktop computer. It allows you to edit documents, add photos or videos then share with other people handily. The only question is how to backup OneDrive to Dropbox? You might fail to find a method to directly link OneDrive to Dropbox. After all, no company would like to provide the connection to other services. Don’t worry, we have MultCloud.
