Cloud storage is one of the best places that allow you store, edit, and share your files. For work, study, or home use, we create accounts in different clouds and then transfer Google Drive to Dropbox because the other storage is more convenient. In this article, we will tell you how to move files and sync data across different clouds easily.
Such clouds as Dropbox and OneDrive are very popular today. They offer gigabytes of free storage, allow editing, and are safe. Meanwhile, manual transfer between them might take time.
First of all, log into both storages. This will give you access to your accounts and allow download and upload.
After you’ve logged in into Dropbox, start to transfer Dropbox to OneDrive. Your next step will be downloading all the files you need. Select the files and click the “Download” button.
Enter OneDrive and click the “Upload” button. After this, select all the files you’ve downloaded from the local storage and begin the uploading process.
Before you move files from one OneDrive account to another, make sure that you have a stable Internet connection. Also, check your device storage and make sure you have the space for all files. And if you have big files or large amounts of data, prepare to wait. The whole process might take a long time. The drawback of this method is that it takes lots of time. If you have lots of files, so it might not suit for work purposes.
To migrate between clouds, transfer the files using the drag and drop option. This option is relatively easy when there aren’t many files. You will only need a computer, a good Internet connection, and some files. Here is a simple how-to:
To drag and drop files between the two accounts, log in into each of them. Open the tab where you can see all your files.
On your computer, divide your screen between two windows so that you could see both of them. Place them next to each other. You can also use this trick to transfer OneDrive to Google Drive.
To transfer files, select all the files you need in the source cloud. Make sure that you’ve selected all of them and use Ctrl or Shift to select multiple files. You also can use “Select all files” option from your cloud.
When you’ve selected all necessary files, drag and drop them into another window with a different cloud. After this, the transfer process will start.
Importantly, don’t use the computer until it finishes to copy OneDrive files to another OneDrive account. If it disrupts, files won’t transfer. Also, if your computer is slow, don’t use this method. If you are unsure about your Internet connection or have too many files, this way can also be problematic.
