we are using gdrive to backup our photos and videos as we are content creator. Now suddenly google change their subscriptions, now we are moving to dropbox. What is the easy step to transfer my existing files (videos and photos) from gdrive to dropbox? i have almost 50T in gdrive.

 

Hope someone can help me here.

 

Thanks, Arish

Hey @arishperez, let's jump right into this! 

 

I'd suggest that you have a look at this Help Center article. It'll give you a step-by-step on how to do this.

I found one but is there other way without using third party software?

Hi @arishperez, you should see it on the home page, next to the Organize button. Bear in mind, the option to import from Google Drive is only available for personal accounts, not for Dropbox Business teams.

Hey Arish! I hope you’re doing well and sorry for jumping in.

 

In that scenario, you can use a third-party app to move these files over to your Dropbox account. 

 

Another option would be to install the Dropbox app on your computer (in case you haven’t already), download your files from Google Drive to your device and then, move them over to your local Dropbox folder. 

 

Since this is a large amount of data we’re talking about though, it will take some time for the updates to sync to your online Dropbox account.

Why only for personal accounts? We pay much more and we should have this function too no?

 

THird party software are extremely slow.. Multcloud is just impossible to use... 

Need more support?
