How to Transfer Files From One Cloud Storage Service to Another

This tutorial will show you step by step how to transfer files from one cloud storage service to another.

With this method you can easily and quickly move your files, such as photos, videos and documents between cloud storage services like Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox, Amazon S3, Amazon Drive, Box, and more.

How to Move Files Between Cloud Storage Services using MultCloud

MultCloud is an online service that allows you to manage, migrate, transfer, copy, and move files between cloud storage services, such as Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox, Amazon S3, Amazon Drive, Box, and more.

They offer a free plan with 2TB (2048 GB) of data traffic for free and they also give you the chance to earn more data traffic by sharing them to other people.

MultCloud is very easy to use, because it looks and works almost the same as the file managers on Windows, Mac and Linux.

In this example I'll be using OneDrive and Google Drive, but the steps work the same for other cloud storage services.

1. Open your web browser.

2. Go to multcloud.com.

3. Sign up for an account.

This means you will have to enter your email address, desired username, desired password, enter the verification code, click on the "Create Account" button, open the email that they send to you and then click on the activation link to activate your account.

4. Log into your account.

5. Click on "Add Clouds" located in the top menu.

Now you will see a list of all the cloud storage services that MultCloud supports.

6. Click on the icon of the cloud service you want add (e.g. OneDrive, Google Drive, etc.).

7. Click on the "Next" button located below the list of cloud services.

10. Log into your account.

You will now see a consent dialog where they will ask your permission to allow MultCloud to access your files stored on the cloud storage service.

For example, if you selected OneDrive, then you will need to click on the "Yes" button, but if you selected Google Drive, then you will need to click on the "ALLOW" button.
