Advanced Tip: How to Transfer SugarSync to Another Cloud

We have learned how to transfer photos to SugarSync. However, SugarSync's pricing may be considered relatively higher compared to some other cloud storage services. Users on a tight budget might find more cost-effective alternatives, such as Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, etc. So, how to move files and photos from SugarSync to another cloud? Use MultCloud.


MultCloud is a cloud management service that enables users to oversee and transfer files across various cloud storage providers using a single interface. One standout feature is the Cloud Transfer function, which facilitates the smooth transfer of files and data between different cloud storage accounts.

  • Multi-Threaded Transfers: The service enables multi-threaded transfers, boosting the speed and efficiency of file transfers between different cloud storage platforms.

On top of the Cloud Transfer feature, MultCloud also allows you to sync and backup data between cloud drives simply and directly.
