Why Link MEGA to Amazon Cloud Drive?
Cloud drives are becoming more and more popular among computer users. Because most cloud drives provide a certain amount of storage space for free, users like to store their data on cloud drives. Moreover, there is no need to carry any storage device, as long as a cloud drive account is created on the website, the user can use the cloud drive to store data, which can save a lot of space for the user's computer, mobile phone, and portable drive.
However, each cloud drive offers a limited free usage capacity. Therefore, many users choose to use multiple cloud drives to store more data. For example, users can use both MEGA and Amazon Drive to store different data. But sometimes, managing multiple cloud storage accounts is a hassle that can only be solved by linking MEGA with Amazon Cloud Drive.
In addition, by connecting MEGA and Amazon Drive, users can get the services provided by MEGA and Amazon Drive at the same time.

Can I Link MEGA to Amazon Cloud Drive Now?
Now, you can connect MEGA and Amazon Drive services. To be precise, before December 31, 2023, you can connect those two services normally, and you cannot connect successfully after that.
It is believed that many Amazon Drive users have received emails from Amazon about the closure of the service. The company said, "Starting December 31, 2023, we will no longer support Amazon Drive to focus more fully on storing photos and videos with Amazon Photos. We will continue to provide customers with the ability to securely back up, share, and organize photos and videos using Amazon Photos."
Over the past few years, Amazon Drive has slowly merged with Amazon Photos, the company's photo and video backup and sync solution (like Google Photos). Aside from the Drive website, the only way to access Amazon Drive files is through the Amazon Photos app on mobile and desktop. The service offers Prime customers unlimited photo storage, as well as 5 GB of free video storage (anyone without a Prime membership gets 5 GB of storage).
Amazon may have decided to shut down the Amazon Drive service after considering the needs of users and input costs. But don't worry, there are plenty of other options for cloud storage, and if you use Amazon Drive, you'll have plenty of time to migrate your files to another platform.
