Dropbox Overview

Dropbox is a popular cloud storage service because it’s reliable, easy to use and breeze to set up. Once you sign up, you are allowed to store 2GB any kind of files in Dropbox at no charge, by either uploading to the website or adding them with the desktop apps. In addition, the service will automatically and quickly sync your files across all of your devices and ensure you can access everything, everywhere. Both above are the two most important functions of Dropbox - storage and syncing.

Two solutions to move files from one Dropbox to another

Suppose that I already have a Dropbox account, and I want to move files from my Dropbox to someone else’s Dropbox, what should I do?

Method 1. Share files of one Dropbox account with another

No need to install anything , just do with Dropbox. When we give another Dropbox edit access to a folder in my Dropbox, then we create a shared folder. The one with edit access can edit, comment, and view files in the folder from anywhere by using Dropbox, in addition changes to the contents of the shared folder are synced to everyone who has access the the shared folder. In this way, we achieve to move files from one Dropbox to another. To do so, Invite first and then Share. But there are two fetal limitations with a shared folder:

1.You can't share a folder inside of another shared folder.

2.You can't share a folder inside of another shared folder. Creating a shared folder from a folder that already contains a very large number of files will often result in an error.

Therefore, we recommend you method 2 to move files from one Dropbox account to another with MultCloud
