Why Transfer Evernote to Google Drive?
Evernote is an efficient tool for taking, editing and sharing notes. For users who have high requirements for taking notes, Evernote is a good choice. Evernote’s built-in Web Clipper tool allows you to clip anything from the web super easily, and the audio recording tool is perfect for when you want to record an idea and revisit it later.
Google Drive is more like a storage tool, and its integrated tool, Google Keep, can help you easily store note data. And, if you're working in a team, Google Drive may offer an advantage. After easily adding team members to a project or assignment, you can not only restore the document to an older version, but also see which collaborators made which changes to the document.
Relatively speaking, Google Drive is smarter than Evernote. After you transfer your notes to Google Drive, you can find your data faster with the smart search provided by Google Drive. In addition, Google Drive will provide a clearer folder hierarchy, which is more conducive to your note management. What's more, you get up to 15GB of free storage space in Google Drive, enough to store a lot of data in the cloud.
How to Transfer Evernote to Google Drive
You can export Evernote files to your computer, then re-upload them to your Google Drive as a backup. However, this manual method requires you to do it twice, which is a waste of time. Here, it is recommended that you try a multiple cloud storage manager---MultCloud. With this platform, you can move files between cloud services directly, like in Windows Explorer.
Currently, MultCloud supports three main functions: "Cloud Transfer", "Cloud Sync" and "Remote Upload". In addition, there are 30+ cloud drives for you to choose from, such as Dropbox, Google Drive, Google Workspace, Google Photos, OneDrive, MEGA, Flickr, Box, pCloud, Amazon S3, Evernote, even NAS, WebDAV, FTP/SFTP, Shared with me and Shared Drive. In this way, you can add the corresponding cloud drive account to move files as needed.

Step 1: Visit the MultCloud home page. Create a free account or click "Try without signing up" for a temporary account.
Step 2: After logging in, click "Add Cloud" to select Evernote to add, and add Google Drive in the same way.
Note: When adding Evernote, you should authorize your Evernote account by clicking the "Add Evernote" button and following the instructions to grant MultCloud access to the account you are connecting. You can even add two or more Evernote accounts to MultCloud.
Step 3: Go to the "Cloud Transfer" interface, select the entire Evernote or the data within it as the source, and select Google Drive or a folder within it as the destination. Then click "Transfer Now".
- Under this function, you can set file filtering, email notification, or file transfer mode in "Options".
- The "Schedule" option can help you automatically transfer Evernote notes to Google Drive. All you need to do is set a specific time.
- If there are only a few notes in Evernote that need to be migrated to Google Drive, you can directly open Evernote in MultCloud, then select the data and click the "Copy" or "Copy to" option, and finally, you can paste Evernote data directly to Google Drive.
As you can see, MultCloud is a web-based cloud file manager that helps you integrate multiple cloud services into one for easy file management and transfer.
