MEGA and OneDrive are cloud storage services that let you access your files on any device at any time. They both have similar features. OneDrive's biggest strength is that it works closely with Microsoft Office apps, such as Word or PowerPoint, so when you launch one of those applications, you will see a list of recent documents saved on OneDrive.

However, anyone with a Microsoft account will only get 5GB of free storage on OneDrive, which in turn is the biggest strength of MEGA because MEGA gives users 15GB of free space and that’s why many people transfer from OneDrive to MEGA. But how to achieve it?

Our first thought is to download files from OneDrive to the local PC and then manually upload these files to MEGA. Yes, that’s the common way we usually use. Now, here in this article, we will offer you a FREE and new way to move files between OneDrive and MEGA without downloading and uploading with the help of MultCloud.

My only problem is that I can't work our a way to move all my OneDrive data over to MEGA, and was wondering if there is an easy way that I'm missing.

Step 3. Upload to MEGA

Head over to the MEGA website and log in. Pick the destination folder in MEGA where you want to store your files. Click "Upload" in MEGA and select the files from your computer to complete the transfer from OneDrive.
