Disadvantages of OneDrive
The main disadvantage of OneDrive is storage size. If you had created a Windows Live account before 22nd of April, 2012 then activated OneDrive, you would get 25GB storage space for free. However, if you created the account after 22nd of April, 2012, you could only get 7GB storage space for free, which can’t satisfy most people’s needs. So many people create multiple OneDrive accounts for more storage. Then a problem comes: How to transfer, sync and backup files from one OneDrive account to another with ease?
Transfer Files From One OneDrive Account to Another By MultCloud
Now, a good news is that there is a FREE multi-cloud management application called MultCloud. It supports not only OneDrive, but also other common cloud services very well. Once you add and manage multiple OneDrive accounts in MultCloud, you can copy your files between different OneDrive accounts easily like moving files in Windows Explorer.
Steps of Transferring Files From One OneDrive to Another1: Add Two OneDrive Accounts
Sign up in MultCloud, activate and sign in. After clicking “Connect Your First Cloud Service” to go to the next page then select OneDrive and following the guides.
Supported by MultCloud clouds are: Dropbox, Google Drive, Box, Amazon S3, Amazon Cloud Drive, SugarSync, Alfresco, Hubic, Evernote, MEGA, CloudMe, Cubby, MyDrive, WEB.DE, Yandex, HiDrive, MySQL, Flickr, MediaFire, ownCloud, ADrive, BaiDu, WebDav and FTP/SFTP.
Then we add another OneDrive with the same steps. We should change the display name to distinguish from the former OneDrive accounts. In this case, we change this display name to “OneDrive1”.
Now we have finished adding two OneDrive accounts.Step2: Move Files
There are three ways to move files between OneDrive accounts. The first way is just dragging the file from one OneDrive to another. Select the file you want to move and hold down the left mouse button to move it.
The second way and third way are similar. Copy the target file in one OneDrive first and paste it in another OneDrive later or directly select “Copy to”.
When you click “Copy to”, there will be a pop-up window. Select OneDrive and click “Transfer”. You can also check “Move” if you want to remove the source file in OneDrive1.
