OneDrive, formerly SkyDrive, is Microsoft's cloud service. With more and more people update to Windows 8, more and more people own OneDrive account, because OneDrive is built in Windows 8 operating system, where it shows up in the file explorer next to all of the files on your computer's hard drive.
I found many people asked questions in the forum like the following situation:
- I had to create a new Windows Live account. I had upload quite some content on Skydrive connected to my old account and now want to move this to the Skydrive connected to my new live account. Can this be done? How?
- I have 2 email accounts, and my new one is the one I want to start using but all my pictures are on my old account, can you transfer these?
- I have just signed up to the new "outlook.com" account and didn't think to do it by morphing my old MSN Windows Live account before doing so. Now I have two accounts but I would like to move everything over to the new outlook.com account and delete the old. I have a SkyDrive account with added storage which I would like to move over to my new user account at "outlook.com". Is there any way to do that?
All above questions can be concluded as what is the way to move files between different OneDrive(Skydrive) accounts. Traditional way is manually save the content that you want in the other OneDrive to your computer first then re-upload it.
