The cloud drive changes the way of storing data and files, which means that our files will not lose due to device loss, virus attacks or USB crashes. Today, there are some popular cloud drives, such as Google Drive, OneDrive and Amazon S3, which have millions of users. And most users have multiple cloud drive accounts at the same time. Most of the users use these two cloud drives OneDrive and Amazon S3 together to store files online, but it is not easy to manage all the files in different cloud services.
So there is a question: How do you use data from Amazon S3 when using OneDrive? In fact, the best method is to sync Amazon S3 to OneDrive and merge the data from both clouds. In this way, you can easily access Amazon S3 data in OneDrive at any time. Next, in this article, you'll learn about two free ways to synchronize Amazon S3 with OneDrive. Let’s take a look.
How to Sync between Amazon S3 and OneDrive?
Basic Way: Sync Amazon S3 with OneDrive via Downloading & Uploading
This is a traditional way. Before syncing files from Amazon S3 to OneDrive, you should download the files from Amazon S3 and then upload them to OneDrive. The following is the detailed steps:
Step 1: Run the Google browser and log in Amazon S3 and OneDrive.
Step 2: On Amazon S3 page: below the Objects & Folders list, choose files you need to sync and click “Download”.
Step 3: On OneDrive page: click the "+New" button to add the files downloaded from Amazon S3 to OneDrive.
Note: This method is not difficult, but the process is long and tedious, which is suitable for such situations that you don’t sync files frequently and there is no much data you want to sync. This method can be extremely time-consuming and labor-intensive when you need to sync cloud drive files frequently or synchronize a large number of files, because the speed of downloading and uploading depends on the network speed and the size of files.
