Are you having a hard time managing all your files from different cloud drives? If yes, then you have come to the right place. In this article, I am going to talk about this awesome tool that can manage all your files which are shattered on different cloud storage services.
This tool is called MultCloud, which is a web-based tool/app that enables you to sync and manage your files from one cloud drive to another. All you need to do is just link all the cloud services you are using to MultCloud and you’re free from the trouble of opening different apps/websites of cloud drives to manage data.
Who should use MultCloud?
People who are tired of switching between different cloud storage apps or websites to manage their files. For example, let’s say you are using three cloud storage: Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, and Dropbox. Now, if your Google drive is full and you want to store a few files to OneDrive and Dropbox, what option do we have? Obvious download the files first and then upload it to other desired cloud storage.
But with the MultCloud tool, you can easily save more time and internet data at the same time. All you have to do is add all the cloud storage services you are using and you can just copy-paste any files from one cloud drive to others. It is just as simple as copying files from one drive to another drive as you guys do on your Windows or Mac computer.
MultCloud supports more than 30 cloud services like Google Drive, Dropbox, MEGA, OneDrive, etc. So you have a variety of options available. Well, there are several reasons to love MultCloud, and one of them is a Cloud Sync, which I think is an amazing feature. Don’t worry I will explain this feature later in this article. Another reason is that you get FREE 30 GB of Data Traffic/Month (total transfer or sync data between cloud storage services).
There are also Paid plans that I will show you at the end of the article. Since most of the new users may begin with free plans so I will continue with a free plan and explain all the processes for setting up the MultCloud.

How to set up MultCloud?
Signing up the MultCloud is simple. You can either use the Sign-Up or Guest Access option (if you just want to test) to access MultCloud.
After logging in, you will see a dashboard like this.
To add cloud drive, you have to click on Add Cloud Drives. In my case, I will add two cloud drives: Google Drive and OneDrive.
Here I will set up a cloud drive one by one.
Now I will click on Add Google Drive Account, which will redirect me to Google Account where I enter the Gmail ID and give MultCloud permission to access Google Drive. The procedures are the same for other cloud services as well.
How to Transfer Files from One Cloud Drive to Others on MultCloud
Transferring files from one drive to another is super easy and obvious this the main reason you want to use MultCloud. Now here’s how to do it.
To transfer any file, all I have to do is select any file. Here I am going to select an image file (cod mobile.jpg) from Google Drive and right-click on it. You will see many options. Now all I have to do is click on Copy and Paste it in OneDrive’s Picture folder.
The transfer process has started.
As you can see, the image has been copied from Google Drive to OneDrive so easily.
How to Upload Files on MultCloud?
Uploading files on any of the cloud drives are the same as most of the other drives. Just go to the folder where you want to upload your file and right click and Upload option will appear.
You can either use Drop files here or click the add button to upload the file. After that click on Upload and the process will begin.
As you can see, the video file has been uploaded. To verify whether it was working properly and all the files were going to the selected drive, I went back to OneDrive to check and it was there. So no problem here.
Like I told at the start of the article, this is an amazing feature. Now it’s time to show you how amazing this feature is.
In this there are two options:
- One – way sync
- Two – way sync
Let’s start with the 1st option.
1. One – way Sync
First Click on Cloud Sync.
Now click on the Option (below Source tab) and by default, it will be in one-way sync. Next, you select the source (ex. I choose Image folder from Google Drive) and destination (here I choose Pictures folder from OneDrive).
Now what will happen here is both the cloud drive’s folder will start to sync (see Screenshot 6) meaning all the files inside the Image folder will be transferred to the Pictures folder (see Screenshot 7). And if you want to sync the same folder again, you don’t have to repeat the same step. Just go to Task Manager and click on Sync Now.
This feature will come in handy for most of the users.
2. Two – way Sync
This is another cool feature that you will love. Let me explain to you with an example. Suppose me and my friend are working on some projects and we have to send each other some important documents. We have two options:
- We share files via email or Pen drive.
- We use MultCloud and select one of my drive’s folders (as Source) and his drive folder (as destination) and select the option Two-way sync. Here, both the selected folder’s data will sync with each other.
Now tell me which option you will choose? 2nd right. Of course, it saves a hell lot of time, especially if you are working on big projects or sharing many files with friends or family. To use the two-way sync, the steps are similar to one-way sync (see below Screenshots).
With this feature, you can easily transfer one drive’s folder to others and can repeat the same task many times from the task manager.
As you can see in the below screenshot, I want to transfer my image folder (Google Drive) to the Video folder (OneDrive). Now all I have to do is click on Transfer Now and like many other MultCloud sync features, I can repeat the same process with one click from task manager.
As you can see in the below screenshot, I have used up to 241 MB of data this month. For normal users, I think it will take a lot of transferring files to reach 30 GB, which they are offering for free.
By clicking on Cloud Explorer, you can view all of your connected cloud drives storage remaining. Just make sure to click on the refresh button to get the fresh results.
MultCloud Price and Plans
MultCloud has 4 plans:
- Free Plan
- Monthly Plan
- Quarterly Plan
- Yearly Unlimited Plan
For most users, the Free Plan would be enough. But if you are having a small or large company, then you may need to upgrade to their Paid Plans, which I think is reasonably priced.
MultCloud Pros and Cons
- Easy to use even if someone is not tech-savvy.
- Clean user interface.
- Many cloud services are available.
- Free 30 GB of usage per month
- Transferring and syncing of files to other cloud drives are easy.
- There is no MultCloud App available for Smartphones.
Well, this is the end of the MultCloud Review. And I loved the features it is offering that to on Free Plans. And for people who have their files scattered across different cloud services, then MultCloud is the best tool to manage all of your cloud drives from one dashboard.
Although I am surprised that they don’t have Apps for Mobile Phones, which I think will make it much easier for users to transfer files on the go. Although I have used web version of MultCloud on my phone and it was able to transfer files but still App would have been much better so that I dint have to sign in again and again.
MultCloud is the Best Free Tool to manage all your Files from different Cloud Services
