Cloud transfer services you really should try


cloud transfer for google drive, dropbox, mega, onedrive, 4shared, baidu, amazon, copy, ftp, mysql

Having accounts with multiple Cloud Storage Services (e.g Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive etc) is quite normal when you manage a lot of heavy files. There come those times when you need to move heavy files (I’m talking Gigabytes) from one Cloud Storage to another. Downloading then re-uploading is neither cost nor data effective…unless you have unlimited data and crazy internet speeds. If you’re on a limited budget or time conscious then you’ll find Cloud Transfer services very helpful. Here are a few I’ve personally used and think will equally come in handy for you.

Cloudsfer

My experience with Cloudsfer

I was really impressed with their free plan. I had to move 3 files (about 1.3GB per file) between Dropbox and Google drive. The process (on each file) was completed between 2 – 5 minutes. I also found their platform easy to use. One thing I found a bit off was having to authenticate (meaning I had to be logged into my account on respective Cloud Storage services) before each transfer. For other Cloud Transfer services I’d used, I only had to authenticate once per Cloud Storage services’s account. Overall, it was a pleasant experience.

Multcloud

This service is quite popular and reliable. As at the time of this post, Multcloud supports:

  • Google Drive

  • SugarSync
  • FTP

Some additional features I came across are:

  • Cloud Explorer: Lets you manage files in your linked Cloud Storage accounts from Multcloud
  • Cloud Sync: Sync two Cloud Storages

My experience with Multcloud

I found Multcloud very easy to use and reliable. They’re about the only one (I know) that supports Baidu. I liked the Cloud Explorer as I could remotely manage files. I also liked the fact that I could name and see my storage stats (used and free space) for various Cloud Storage accounts. What I found a bit off about Multcloud was the slow transfer speed on the free plan. According to their pricing page, the paid plan has a faster transfer speed.

Mover

My experience with Mover

File transfer on Mover was pretty fast. Their User Interface was really easy to get around. I was able to use the service for free in BETA. What I now find a bit off is that its now strictly paid. No free or trial accounts.

Otixo

otixo cloud management service

What brought Otixo under my radar was their support for 4Shared. That was like the missing piece of the puzzle for me. As of the time of this post, Otixo supports:

  • 4Shared
  • ADrive
  • Alfresco
  • Amazon
  • Amazon S3
  • Box
  • CloudMe

  • Yandex

Features of their free plan include:

  • Bandwidth usage
  • 2GB monthly
  • Easy data transfer
  • File and folder sharing
  • End-2-end encryption

My experience with Otixo

I found the Otixo interface pretty smooth and easy to get around. File transfers was simply Copy and Paste. The file transfer speed was also impressive. Moving a 1GB file from 4Shared to Google Drive took less than a minute. What I found a bit off was the 2GB monthly transfer limit; really small.

If you’ve had a good experience with any Cloud Transfer services which I haven’t mentioned here then I would love to hear about it.
