Why Move Files from SugarSync to OneDrive?
SugarSync is not a typical cloud storage service but allows you to sync your files when working on your computer and mobile devices. Many people prefer it in the early cloud storage service era because of its reliability, the control over what to be synced, the support of all major platforms, and its beautiful interface. But SugarSync only offers a 30-day free trial for users to have a try and there’s no free plan in SugarSync.
However, since Microsoft SkyDrive was renamed OneDrive, its overall quality and functionality have improved significantly. For example, now you can achieve OneDrive two-way sync for all platforms. OneDrive now supports automatic uploading and sorting of photo galleries, integration with Outlook and Xbox, etc. That is to say, OneDrive is now much easier to use than ever before and the price is lower than SugarSync.
Therefore, if you don’t want to pay for services anymore or you want to find a cloud storage service that has more users so you can share files with them directly and securely, it is necessary to use OneDrive instead of SugarSync. So, the clear instructions below will show you one normal way and one smart way to copy files from SugarSync to OneDrive successfully.
How to Move Files from SugarSync to OneDrive in 2 Ways
As you may think, you can always transfer files from SugarSync to OneDrive by downloading files and folders from SugarSync and then re-upload them to OneDrive manually. This process can be effective if you only need to move a few files between clouds. If you have a large number of data that need to be moved from SugarSync to OneDrive, then you can follow the second quick method that doesn’t require you to download or upload anything.
Traditional Way: Move SugarSync to OneDrive by Downloading and Uploading
Step 1. Log in to the SugarSync official website on the browser.
Step 2. Right-click on the folder or file that you want to move to OneDrive.
Step 3. Click “Download” in the dropdown menu and choose a place in the pop-up window to store your downloaded files.
Step 4. Log in to the OneDrive web with your OneDrive or OneDrive for Business account.
Step 5. Click the “Upload” button above to upload the downloaded file to your OneDrive.
Tip: You may need to be patient to wait for the downloading and uploading processes to be done since the unstable network may cause some unexpected trouble.
