Notes:

  • For "Cloud Transfer", it supports transferring folders or entire cloud as the source only. If you just want to transfer some files from FTP 1 to FTP 2, then you can use "Copy" and "Paste" features through "Cloud Explorer" to achieve your goal.
  • If you want to transfer files regularly, you can enable "Schedule" through "Options".
  • If your data size is very large, you can close the page as long as the task begins because MultCloud can run your task at the background.
