"I currently store a large of data in OneDrive but I want to migrate them to Dropbox. Does anyone know how to migrate from OneDrive to Dropbox?"
Traditional Way: Migrate OneDrive to Dropbox
Like the mentioned scenario, it is possible that you want to transfer OneDrive to Dropbox if you have both of them. But performing the task can be a bit annoying because it seems that you can only achieve your goal through the traditional way as blow.
Traditional Way: Download and Upload
Step 1: Login your OneDrive account.
Step 2: Select all the files and click on "Download" to download them to your local storage.
Step 3: Login your Dropbox account.
Step 4: Click on "Upload files" to move all the files to Dropbox
Though this way can help you migrate the storage, you need to spend a lot of time downloading and uploading. Besides, this transferring process depends on the files volume and the network speed so you must keep your machine on until the task finished, which would make annoyance if you need to go out suddenly.
So, is it totally impossible to find a way that can avoid the annoying operation steps and potential problems? No! Fortunately, there is a free web-based app MultCloud that can help you.
