Transfer files between Cloud Storage Services easily and freely

By | March 3, 2013

cloud_backupI use few popular cloud storage services like Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, Amazon S3, etc. for storing files and important data. I store frequently accessed files on Google Drive and highly important and archived data on Amazon S3. I also use Dropbox to serve static files of my websites. I replicate Dropbox files to Box as a backup.

If you are solely using one service to store all your important data, then there are chances of losing your data, so replicate the data between few free services, so that if you lose access to one, your valuable data will be safe on another service.

To replicate or transfer the data between these cloud services, you need to download them onto your system and then transfer, which is a time consuming process. This is when serves the purpose. Mover automatically transfers the files between variety of cloud storage services at just few clicks. “Mover” needs access to the two cloud storages you are moving the files between and then you can transfer the files between them seamlessly and automatically. The limitation here is free service only allows 1GB of data transfer at a stretch and you can do only 10 transfers a month. If you are having more than 1GB data then transfer it in 1GB chunks. This limit is more than enough for most of the users. Paid plan “Pro” allows to do unlimited transfers up to 25GB per month for a fee of $20.

“Mover” also allows transfer data from FTP, SFTP, and Flickr.
