Why need to transfer files from Dropbox to Amazon Cloud?

Dropbox is a wonderful network storage device with two most important functions - storage and syncing. For you, it may not be enough to store files in the cloud, and real-time updates of local copies of those files on all your devices requires that the cloud allow you to sync the latest updates of those files to it. Luckily, Dropbox offers both capabilities.

However, Amazon Cloud Drive can’t support to sync files, instead it’s just a simple batch uploader to help you get files to your Amazon Cloud Drive Account by dragging and dropping. This is a relatively laborious process, but it ensures that your files are indeed safe and secure. Because Amazon Cloud Drive stores files only in the cloud, you can only access files manually from a device with a modern Web browser and manually grab files, then manually re-upload files to Amazon Cloud Drive once any changes are made. All make it harder to access your data comparing to Dropbox with which files you access are stored on your local device.

For you, if securing a copy of your data in the cloud and allowing to access them from just about any device are all you want, Amazon Cloud Drive with lower price and unlimited storage capacity is a good choice, or you can make it an extra online repository besides your Dropbox. To achieve this, we’ll show you how to transfer files from Dropbox to Amazon Cloud step by step with MultCloud.
