User Case: How Do I FTP Files to OneDrive?
“I have a OneDrive account.I remotely access files on a FTP server now from my laptop using Free Filezilla to download them to my laptop (with limited bandwidth internet connection).I would like to set up a process that will transfer selected files from that FTP server DIRECTLY to my OneDrive account without having to first download them from the FTP server to my laptop and then upload them from my laptop to OneDrive. Is there any tool that can achieve this goal?”
