You may want to transfer or move files between cloud storage, but it can be difficult when there are a lot of files. This tutorial will show you step by step on how to transfer files from one cloud storage service to another without downloading and re-uploading files.
Cloud storage is a cloud computing model that stores data on the Internet through a cloud computing provider who manages and operates data storage as a service. It’s delivered on-demand with just-in-time capacity and costs and eliminates buying and managing your own data storage infrastructure. This gives you agility, global scale, and durability, with “anytime, anywhere” data access.
As the cloud industry matures, more and more clouds appear in the market with different features. Therefore, it becomes a common phenomenon to have multiple cloud drives at the same time. The main reasons why people want to transfer between cloud drives are as follows:
Usually, if you want to transfer files from one cloud storage to another, such as Google Drive to OneDrive, you first need to download files that you want to transfer from your Google Drive and then upload them manually to the OneDrive account. This is a proven method. However, if you have a lot of files to transfer, then this method is a bit cumbersome. At this time, a FREE online cloud transfer storage manager, MultCloud, can give you a hand.
MultCloud, as a free cloud file transfer manager, which can not only help combine cloud storage accounts together from one place but also can transfer, back up or sync files from one cloud to another directly without downloading and uploading in a quick and easy way. It currently supports more than 30+ leading cloud drives, including G Suite, Google Drive, Dropbox for Business, Dropbox, OneDrive, OneDrive for Business, MEGA, Google Photos, Flickr, etc.
It has three key features: “Cloud Explorer”, “Cloud Transfer” and “Cloud Sync”. For “Cloud Explorer”, it’s like an online Windows Explorer so you can do many operations like “Move”, “Cut”, “Download”, “Share”, “Upload” etc. For “Cloud Transfer”, it allows you to transfer files from one cloud account to others directly without switching accounts, logging in and out, etc. For “Cloud Sync”, it allows you to create sync relationships across cloud drives. As long as you have made changes from one account, it will be synced to the destination cloud.
