Since Google released the news that it will cancel the cloud drive unlimited space plan in July 2022, it doesn’t matter whether you are a school or a business account. It is undoubtedly a trouble for there is no longer an unlimited cloud drive, you will indeed need to find some alternatives later. Of course, you can continue to use google drive, but at that time, no matter what you backed up or important work and meeting data will be deleted.
If you want to save time and more efficiently, you can use Multcloud — a multiple cloud file manager platform to manage or transfer files on multiple cloud drives. Multcloud is an aggregation service that can all set some popular cloud drives on the same interface, so that users can browse files or move folders in different spaces.
MultCloud supports more than 30 cloud storage services, including Dropbox, Dropbox Business, Google Drive, G Suite, Google Photos, OneDrive, OneDrive for Business, MEGA, Flickr, FTP, Box, pCloud, Amazon S3, SugarSync, Hubic, Evernote, CloudMe, Cubby, MyDrive, WEB.DE, Yandex, HiDrive, MySQL, MediaFire, ownCloud, ADrive, BaiDu, NAS and WebDav, and also supports FTP/SFTP protocol.
You may want to ask: is it really safe to use MultCloud? In fact, it is very safe. MultCloud is set by linking accounts and authorization methods, which means that it does not save your account passwords for these services. Users can remove the MultCloud authorization on the original service at any time, and it will not be able to access the data in your cloud drive.
There is currently no charge for using MultCloud, and there are no restrictions on use. You only need to register an account to start using it.

To use Multcloud, you need to log in to your account. After opening the website, click “Sign up Free” and enter your email, username, password and other data to create a free account, or click “Try without signing up” to get the account and password provided by the system.
Log in to your account and you will see the management interface. First click on the “Add Cloud” to manage the cloud drive you want to manage. Click on the cloud drive icon and continue to the next step (taking Google drive as an example).
Then you will be asked to log in to your Drive account, which is to authorize Multcloud to access/manage files.
Note: If you need to manage multiple cloud drives, please continue to click “Add Cloud” to complete the login and authorization steps one by one.
Drives that have been added will appear in the left column. Click on the cloud drive to perform management operations such as deleting, downloading, cutting, copying, previewing, renaming and obtaining sharing links.
The advantage of using Multcloud is that it can transfer across cloud drives and synchronize with cloud drives. The Cloud Transfer allows users to easily transfer files from Drive A to Drive B (such as transfer Google Drive to another account), and the transfer program will continue to run even if the computer is shut down.
After specifying the file path in “From:” and “To:“, click “Options” to select how to handle duplicate files and automatically delete the source files. Click “Transfer Now” to start the task for Multcloud to transfer files.
Click the “Task List” icon under “Common Tools“. There will be a record of executed tasks and you can view the progress.
Wait for the transfer to complete, open the destination cloud drive and you will see the files transferred via Multcloud, which saves time and convenience without manual operation.
Cloud Sync can easily sync two cloud storage services or files on different cloud storage services. At present, Multcloud provides One-way Sync, Two-way Sync, Real Time Sync. And, One-way Sync includes Simple Sync, Mirror Sync, Move Sync, Cumulative Sync, Update Sync, Incremental Sync and Full Backup Sync. In addition, you can set a scheduled sync to automatically synchronize data between drives at a fixed time interval.
You can use Multcloud for free, limit the data traffic of 30GB per month, and there is no advanced function. It should be enough for ordinary users. If necessary, you can consider a paid plan.
If you don’t want to buy the paid version, you can also try the recommended entry provided by MultCloud. As long as you invite a friend to register for MultCloud, you can get free 2G traffic, that is, add traffic from the free 30G traffic every month.
The point is that this invitation mechanism is “unlimited”. In other words, as long as you invite 100 people, you will increase your traffic by 200G, and if you invite 200 people, you will increase your traffic by 400G. There is no upper limit, and you still have the chance to win the prize every month — lifetime unlimited data traffic!
