This article presents two ways about how to migrate Dropbox to another drive. You can choose one based on your own decision.
Why Transfer Dropbox to Another Drive?
“I am currently using the Dropbox, but it is running out. So my Dropbox files will move to other clouds. I would like to avoid re-downloading all the data and am wondering what is a good way to achieve that.”
This problem raised by the user can reflect a common problem and a kind of client demand. Dropbox is a popular cloud service with a mass of users. However, it basically provides users with only 2 GB of free storage and Dropbox users may find their Dropbox space gets full quickly especially when uploading large files.
Against to this backdrop, users start to possess multiple Dropbox accounts for various reasons. Some people find it is annoying to manage private and business files in one Dropbox cloud, so they try to create another Dropbox to keep data separate and they need transfer personal or public data to the new Dropbox cloud. Others, for fear of data loss, add a new Dropbox account to backup something important without paying. Then, here comes a question: how can they move Dropbox to another drive and is there any way to do the transfer task?
How to Move Dropbox to Another Drive?
The following part will introduce two ways to achieve this goal.
Solution 1: Download and Upload
Most of us can find this traditional way immediately. For example, if you want to migrate from Dropbox to Google Drive, you can download data in Dropbox to local storage and finally upload them to your Google Drive. But it requires downloading and uploading everything repeatedly, which is extremely time-consuming.
Solution 2: Operate the task via MultCloud
No need to download and no more repetitive operation. There is an effective way to do the task with the help of Multcloud. Multcloud is a free web-hosted app which provides good management of multiple clouds. Of course, with its transfer feature, you can move Dropbox to another cloud storage in just 3 steps.
