User Case


I recently started using SharePoint, and I was given the task of organizing the websites for my business. The person who developed our SharePoint sites did not utilize a tree view but made separate, unconnected sites that would be housed under the main business site in a line. My idea is to build a tree view, with the main corporate site at the top and the smaller sites underneath it, each representing a different department. The issue is that these sites were made by someone who is no longer employed by the company, and I don't want to lose the TON of data that is included in these potential subsites. Is there a simple method to follow?

Why Merge 2 SharePoint Sites?

Microsoft created SharePoint, a flexible platform for collaboration that helps with document management, process automation, and teamwork in businesses. You may have the following reasons to combine two SharePoint sites:

  • Information Consolidation: Redundant content may be present in businesses with several SharePoint sites. Merging these sites can help users discover what they need more quickly and without having to visit several sites.
  • Enhanced Cooperation: Teams that have been operating in isolation can be brought together by combining SharePoint sites.
  • Improved Searchability: By removing redundant content and making sure that all relevant information is tracked and accessible through a simple search, merging sites can enhance search capability.
  • Savings: Depending on your SharePoint licensing arrangement, reducing the number of sites you manage can save you money on infrastructure resources and license fees.

How to Merge 2 SharePoint Sites via MultCloud

According to the answers in the Microsoft Community, there is no direct way to merge the 2 SharePoint sites. If you want to use a sole site as a subsite of another sole site, you can first create a subsite and then move files from the previous site to the new one. It is the official solution. However, you can also choose to sync files between these 2 sites to link SharePoint sites. Whether you prefer to move files or sync files, MultCloud can play a role.


MultCloud is a free cloud storage manager that supports more than 30 clouds like SharePoint Online, Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive, Amazon S3, iCloud Drive, etc. After adding your cloud accounts to it, you can easily transfer files between any of them. Cloud Transfer and Cloud Sync are 2 of MultCloud’s main functions.

Both of these 2 functions can be added features like Schedule and Filter. Schedule” is used to appoint the start time of a task and make it run regularly. Besides, “Filter” is used to filter the files that you want to sync/transfer with their file extensions. The specific steps for using Cloud Sync and Cloud Transfer to merge 2 SharePoint sites are shown below. You can select a more satisfying way.

Sync Files between SharePoint Sites by Cloud Transfer

Step 1: Go to MultCloud and click “Get started for free” to get a free account.

Note: If you want the sync task to run constantly unless you manually stop it, you can use the Real Time Sync mode. Or, if you want to keep the 2 sites the same after each time syncing, you can use the Mirror Sync.

Move SharePoint Content from One Site to Another by Cloud Transfer

After creating a new subsite, if you want to directly move files from the previous one to this one to merge 2 SharePoint sites, you can utilize MultCloud Cloud Transfer instead of other ways. There are 2 benefits of using Cloud Transfer:

  • Support Offline Transfer: MultCloud uses data traffic to transfer files. Even when you shut down the task window or your computer, the transfer task can also run as usual.
  • Cleanup the Source Cloud: If you want to free up space in the source cloud, you can let MultCloud do it as soon as the transfer task is done.

It is also quite easy to use Cloud Transfer to achieve file migration.

Step 1: Sign up for a MultCloud account and add your SharePoint accounts to it.

Step 2: Click “Cloud Transfer” in the left sidebar to open it and choose the source and target clouds.

Step 3: Open “Options” to check the transfer settings and tap on “Transfer Now” to initiate the task.
