Users are familiar with OneDrive cloud sync; but for cloud sync multiple locations of OneDrive, we may have no ideas. Multiple locations can be multiple sources or multiple destinations; and both source and target locations can be local devices (like computers, PCs, hard drives, pads, cellphones, etc.) or online cloud drives. Here, we will only talk about cloud to cloud sync and the multiple locations refers to destination clouds.
Can We Sync OneDrive to Multiple Locations at the Same Time?
In common situations, the official Microsoft OneDrive app can only achieve synchronization between local place and OneDrive cloud, it can’t carry out sync task from one cloud to another, let alone from one cloud to multiple cloud drives.
Fortunately, there are third party programs which can satisfy our needs, such as MultCloud, an online multiple cloud drives manager, which can not only sync files between two clouds, but also sync data among multiple cloud storages, that is to sync items from one source cloud to several destination clouds.
How to Do Multiple Locations Syncing of OneDrive with MultCloud?
First of all, we need to set up a cloud to cloud backup task and then add more target locations. The process is easy to learn.
1. Register MultCloud
