As we all know, MEGA and Google Drive are two famous cloud storage services. Many users use both MEGA and Google Drive to store their data. However, while using those two cloud drives, you may find that sometimes you want to move data between MEGA and Google Drive.
Here in this post, you'll find 2 safe and free ways to help copy files from MEGA to Google Drive.
Copy MEGA to Google Drive by Downloading & Uploading
