Can you link multiple OneDrive accounts in Windows 10?

One person may have multiple OneDrive accounts for different reasons. He or she may have given access of some of these OneDrive accounts to other persons. Therefore, he or she wants to sync these accounts that managed by other persons to a folder of the OneDrive account that owned by himself or herself only.

If that is someone like you, you may want to integrate multiple OneDrive accounts into Windows Explorer. You can use OneDrive personal and OneDrive for business account on a same PC, but you will receive the error “You’re already syncing a personal OneDrive on this computer. Unlink that account to add a new one.” when you try to add another OneDrive account.

Though many users have such request, Microsoft does not have plans to support multiple OneDrive accounts on same computer. Luckily, there is a workaround for managing multiple OneDrive accounts in Windows 10 without the need to unlink or link several times.

Free tool to link multiple OneDrive accounts on one computer

There is a free application called MultCloud that allows you to links all your OneDrive personal and business accounts altogether. From there, you can easily access all the files saved in your OneDrive accounts and better organize them across different accounts.

For transferring files from OneDrive account to another, you can simply drag a file or folder and then drop it to another account. You use this easy method to move files from OneDrive personal to OneDrive for business accounts.

If need to transfer files to a certain location constantly, then manually do it may be cumbersome. In that case, you can set up a scheduled sync task to sync two folder on different accounts automatically.
