What is OneDrive for Business?
Some users are seeking for an easy method to transfer files from Dropbox to OneDrive for Business. But first, do you really know about OneDrive for Business (ODFB)?
This name can be a little confusing at first because of its brand name. One may think ODFB is simply OneDrive with some extra features to get the job done. Actually, it has nothing to do with OneDrive in terms of what it actually is.
OneDrive for Business brings teams working together on files using a business account, not their personal one. Close to the concept of the basic OneDrive, with ODFB each team member has his or her storage place. The difference is the platform used to offer the service. ODFB uses a platform called SharePoint to give each member of your team a place to store and work on documents with other people, which also provides more administration options. By the way, it costs $2.50 per user per month.
Dropbox to OneDrive for Business
After viewing the brief introduction of OneDrive for Business, you may exactly decide to sync or transfer files from Dropbox to OneDrive for Business due to the function, price or other reasons. How to do? No one would like to download files from one cloud first then upload to another manually. It’s a time-consuming job indeed! Don’t worry, here comes MultCloud.
Free web app -- MultCloud unifies all cloud services in one place. No need to login each cloud account to download and upload files, no need to install additional apps, you’re able to realize Dropbox to OneDrive for Business migration in just 3 steps with its moving feature.

3 steps only
1) A MultCloud account is like a master key for other clouds so it’s better to get one and sign in.
2) Add your Dropbox and ODFB accounts into MultCloud one by one. (about data security)
3) Then, connection is finished! You can sync/transfer files from Dropbox to OneDrive for Business through copy options from contextmenu. (Update: MultCloud added Cloud Sync service since 4.0 version.)
Tips: If selecting “Copy”, you should paste in ODFB. If you select “Copy to”, it enables you to transfer to multiple cloud drives at the same time. Or it’s possible to drag documents directly to ODFB, too.
Another way to backup files regularly is using “Transfer Service”, which runs even after power off. Set according to your demands.
More useful options are available in contextmenu when you right click a specific file such as “Preview”, “Share”, etc.
To locate any document, search across clouds by typing keywords or suffix in the search box.
