Method 1: Migrate OneDrive to Dropbox by "Download & Upload"

Like the mentioned scenario, it is likely that you want to transfer files from OneDrive to Dropbox if you have both of them. To achieve this aim, the most traditional way is to download data from OneDrive to the local device first of all, and then re-upload them to Dropbox. It can be broken into the following steps.

Step 1: Go to the OneDrive homepage (https://onedrive.live.com) and sign in to your account.
Step 2: Select all the files and click on "Download" to download them to your local storage.

Step 3: Go to the Dropbox homepage (https://www.dropbox.com/) and sign in to your account.
Step 4: Click on "Upload files" to move all the files to Dropbox.

Though this way can help you migrate the storage, it takes you a lot of time to download and upload when it involves a large amount of files. Besides, this transferring process depends on the network speed and you have to keep your machine on until the task is finished, which would make an annoyance if you need to go out for some emergencies.

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.

  • "Options" selection provides more functions, for example, you can set up an email notification so that it will send an email to remind you once it finishes the task. Besides, you can move files from OneDrive to Dropbox by enabling the "Delete all source files after transfer is complete" function.
  • Conversely, you can also easily move files from Dropbox to OneDrive in the way mentioned above.

Can I sync a OneDrive folder to Dropbox?

If you just want to transfer from OneDrive to Dropbox for one time, the above method is perfect. However, if you need to migrate data from OneDrive to Dropbox frequently in order to keep them consistent all the time, then we highly recommend the "Cloud Sync", which can sync data between two different clouds. Just click on "Cloud Sync", choose the OneDrive as the source while Dropbox as the destination, quite similar to the above operation.

The Bottom Line

Now, you should know how to migrate OneDrive to Dropbox. Two methods are available for your selection, and both are simple in different situations. For a small amount of data, the first traditional way is enough. For a large amount of data, the second is more recommended, which does not rely on network speed and not require the device to be on during the process. More convenient and effective!

What’s more, MultCloud can assist you to download interesting movies, meaningful e-books, or other files to cloud drives by parsing torrent files and magnet links, such as download torrent files directly to MEGA cloud. In addition to the above functions, MultCloud also supports other practical functions. For example, you can perform the following operations on files or folders in the cloud drive: share, download, delete, rename, copy and paste, etc. If you want to experience it, please register an account and go to the back-end interface to use.
