Why Migrate Files from MEGA to Box?
MEGA is a useful file hosting service that offers 20 GB of free cloud storage for each user to store and share files securely online. It offers link expiration, link password, and link decryption key for users to have a safe file-sharing experience.
Box is also a great cloud storage service but only provides 10 GB of free storage to users. It doesn’t provide a link decryption key but allows users to share files with different access permissions for receivers. And Box supports two more operating systems such as Chrome OS and Linux.
Therefore, if you want to share your files with others flexibly, you could migrate MEGA to Box and then enjoy the great file-sharing experience that Box and Box for Business provide. What’s more, since Box requires users to log in with a username and password every time they open the cloud, it would be safer if you move files from MEGA to Box and use Box in daily life.
To suit your demand for migrating files from MEGA to Box, we have tested out two most reliable methods for you to try. The first normal method of downloading and uploading is suitable for you to move a few files from MEGA to Box. And the second method of using a professional multiple cloud storage manager would help you a lot if you want to migrate a large number of files from MEGA to Box with a single click.
How to Migrate Files from MEGA to Box in a Traditional Way
The traditional way to copy files from MEGA to Box is without any doubt to download data from MEGA and then re-upload them to Box. This manual process would be helpful if you only have a few files to be migrated. On the contrary, you would be very likely to be annoyed by the endless waiting and high risks of unexpected errors caused by the unstable network during the downloading and uploading process if you have lots of data to be transferred.
Manually Migrate MEGA Files to Box
Step 1. Log in to the MEGA official website on the browser.
Step 2. Click the three-dot button beside the file or folder that you want to migrate to Box and choose Download > Standard Download in the dropdown menu.
Step 3. Log in to the Box web with your Box or Box for Business account.
Step 4. Find the downloaded files on your computer, drag and drop them to the Box interface. Or, you can click the “New +” button in the upper right corner to upload the downloaded files to Box.
Tip: Please don’t close the browser window or shut down your device until the downloading and uploading processes are done.
