Why people need MultCloud
There is no doubt that many people maintain accounts on multiple cloud services to take advantage of the additional free storage. Now, there are times when one may need to transfer some files from one service to another. For example, transfer files between Dropbox and Google Drive.
Dropbox is one of the popular service that can store your files in the cloud. Google Drive obviously makes the most sense if you’re already using Gmail or Google Apps. However, moving files seamlessly between the two can be a somewhat time consuming and arduous task.
The traditional way is downloading files from one service and then re-uploading it again to another service. This process not only taking time, but also end up consuming twice the amount of bandwidth of the files. Now, good news is, using a multi-cloud management application called MultCloud, these troubles can be solved. MultCloud is a 100% FREE web-based application designed for multiple cloud drives management. Let’s see how to use it easily transferring files between Dropbox and Google Drive.
