Migrate OneDrive files to Dropbox

Migrate OneDrive files to Dropbox

Hello,

 

I plan on moving around 250GBs worth of files from my OneDrive to my Dropbox.

Is there a tool or anything that I can use to help with this migration?

Is there a recommended procedure to run through?

Would tools like Robocopy suffice?

 

 

Thanks

Dropbox has no migration feature. You'll either need to download your files from Dropbox and upload them to OneDrive, or use a third-party service such as MultCloud to move the files.

There are several tools available that can help with migrating files from OneDrive to Dropbox, and Robocopy is one such tool that can be used for this purpose. However, there are some limitations to using Robocopy, such as the lack of a user-friendly interface and the need for technical expertise to configure and run the tool effectively.

Here are some other tools and recommended procedures that you may find helpful for migrating your files:

  1. Gs Richcopy 360: is a GUI migration tool, known for its fast file transfer speeds and efficient use of system resources. It uses multi-threaded file copying technology to transfer files quickly and can handle large volumes of data without slowing down your system. It excellent to copy from and to different clouds like Onedrive, dropbox, Azure blob, AWS S3,.......etc .
  2. Cloudsfer: is a cloud-based tool that allows you to migrate files between different cloud storage platforms, including OneDrive and Dropbox. It offers a user-friendly interface and can be used to transfer large volumes of data quickly and efficiently. You can choose from a range of migration options, such as selective migration, delta migration, and scheduling, to customize your migration process.
  3. MultCloud: is another cloud-based tool that allows you to transfer files between different cloud storage platforms, including OneDrive and Dropbox. It offers a simple interface and can be used to transfer large volumes of data quickly and efficiently. MultCloud also offers a range of features, such as file filtering, file synchronization, and multi-threaded transfer, to customize your migration process.
  4. Manual Migration: If you prefer to migrate your files manually, you can do so by downloading your files from OneDrive and then uploading them to Dropbox. This process can be time-consuming, especially if you have a large volume of data, but it allows you to have more control over the migration process and can be done at your own pace.
