  • The process of transferring runs on the server of MultCloud, so you don’t need to worry about the speed of the Internet will affect the process of transferring.
  • You can only transfer folders or entire cloud from one cloud to other clouds with "Cloud Transfer" feature.
  • If there are lots of files to transfer, you can close the page and even close your PC because MultCloud can run the process on the back end.
  • As MultCloud supports offline transfer, when the task starts, you can close the page without waiting for the task to complete.
  • MultCloud does not have any limit to the data size you transfer.

If you need to move files that are in different folders to other clouds, MultCloud can also help you with the "Cloud Explorer" function. Select the files in the folder you want to move and right click “Copy to”. Then select the target directory under other clouds and click on “Transfer” to transfer files from one drive to the other drives.
