Why Sync Google Drive to OneDrive?
Today, cloud storage services are increasingly popular ways of storing and backing up data online. Among several cloud storage services, OneDrive and Google Drive are the two most popular cloud drives that have the largest user base across the world.
Google Drive offers each user 15 GB of free storage and cost-effective upgrade options. On the other hand, Microsoft OneDrive has been a popular cloud service in the cloud storage industry for years. OneDrive offers 5 GB of free storage and has a deep connection with Microsoft Office 365 suites.
Lots of cloud users use both Google Drive and OneDrive in daily life. They use Google Drive (Google Workspace) to store business files and OneDrive to store personal data. Therefore, some users like you may want to sync files from Google Drive to OneDrive or sync Dropbox to OneDrive as backups or use the same file on both OneDrive and Google Drive easily.
How to Sync Google Drive to OneDrive via MultCloud
A traditional method frequently used by most users is to download files from Google Drive to the local folder and upload them to OneDrive all by yourself. This manual method is useful when file sizes are small and data does not need to be moved frequently. Another way is to use Google Takeout to move Google Photos to OneDrive or migrate Google Drive to OneDrive. But you still have to upload files to OneDrive with slow speed and a long time waiting.
