How To Transfer Files From One Cloud Service To Another

There are plenty of reasons why you would want to  transfer files from one cloud service to another.  Maybe you just got bored with the service you are using or you just need more space elsewhere.

If you have a small number of files occupying a small space in your cloud storage service,  it’s easy to download the file(s) to your computer and upload to the other cloud service you want to transfer to.

Make sure your service sync setting is turned on so that a copy of the file(s) is left in the source cloud service. If you need to transfer a relatively larger file or files, this process might take too long and is tideous.
