Why Transfer Files from Dropbox to OneDrive?

Nowadays, many people have signed up multiple cloud services to store files. As Dropbox and OneDrive are two famous cloud drives, many people choose them naturally. “What’s the best cloud service” is not a problem any more. Because own several clouds isn’t anything difficult. In this way, we can not only get more free storage space but also keep our files backed up to the hills.

On the other side, since Microsoft OneDrive and Dropbox has their own highlights as well as limits, users use them for different reasons, store different files in each of them. Then new question comes, how can we transfer data between Dropbox and OneDrive? Maybe sometimes we need files stored in another cloud. If you have installed their clients on the desktop, dragging and dropping (copy and paste) the content you wish to move from Dropbox to OneDrive can be easily achieved.

However, on other devices like pad or mobile, above way cannot work well. In fact, since their clients on Windows are similar to Windows explorer so that it ignores the way of downloading and re-uploading. If the client is linked to the cloud directly not the local, you have to download and re-upload. If we can find a method to transfer or move from Dropbox to OneDrive on any environment, that will be great! So is there any way that can sync from Dropbox to OneDrive directly? Following below parts to find the solution.
