A Brief Introduction about Google Drive and Amazon Cloud Drive

Google Drive is a file storage and synchronization service developed by Google. Google Drive keeps the revisions of files for either up to 100 revisions or till 30 days, while the storage space occupied is only the size of the latest file. Besides, as Google Docs has been integrated into Google Drive, you can not only create, edit and share documents , but also comment, discuss and edit with your partners in real-time. This is a really productive way to cooperate with others.

In 2015, Amazon Cloud Drive provided a service called “Unlimited Everything Plan”. Online storage users could spend only $60 for unlimited storage space! However, Amazon ended its unlimited cloud storage plan in June 2017. Many users were quite disappointed at the new $60 for 1 TB plan. But frankly speaking, $60 for 1 TB is inexpensive among mainstream cloud drive services.

Transfer, sync or copy files between Google Drive and Amazon Drive

As Google Drive and Amazon Cloud Drive have their own features, many people use both of them for online storage. However, it is not easy to organize all files on different cloud services, for instance, if we need to move a file from Amazon Cloud Drive to Google Drive, we have to download the files from Amazon and re-upload them to Google Drive. Is there a way to cut the middle step?

MultCloud --- a web-based app, enables you to move files between different cloud drives through a windows explorer type service. Therefore, you can migrate Google Drive to Amazon Cloud Drive, instead of the tedious way of downloading and re-uploading. As the process of cloud-to-cloud transfer runs on the Server of MultCloud, you are allowed to shutdown your computer during transmission.

MultCloud is also a cloud storage manager that helps to merge multiple cloud drives into one, for instance, once you have connected your Google Drive and Amazon Drive to MultCloud, you can securely access all your online files on these different cloud drives in a single interface.
