"Can I Transfer Files from Google Drive to Box?"
"Hello. I have a paid Google Drive account, but am thinking about ending my plan with them and moving all files from Google Drive to Box. I would like to move specific files and folders without downloading and uploading them, as I have dozens of GBs to move, and my Internet connection isn't the fastest. So, is there any way to move files from Google Drive to Box without downloading? Thanks!"
Why Move Files from Google Drive to Box?
Cloud storage services are more and more popular. They are very convenient for users. You do not need to bring any external hard drive to store your data, and you do not need to spend your local hard disk space. The most important is that you can use it on any computer as long as you access it through the Internet.
Google Drive and Box are two famous cloud storage services. Many users use Google Drive to store data, meanwhile, they also have Box account. But sometimes, you (may be one in these users) may want to move Google Drive files to Box for backup. Perhaps you know that you can download and re-upload all your files to Box, but this method takes time if your Internet connection is not in a good condition.
So, is there any way that can help achieve Google Drive to Box migration without downloading? Luckily, there's a FREE cloud to cloud transfer tool, MultCloud, which can meet your demand.
