Google Drive VS Icedrive

Some people may have been long-term users of cloud storage but don't want to spend too much money on data storage. Google Drive is an excellent and comprehensive cloud storage with many people choosing it to store data. If we want to get more space, we have to pay some fees every month or year. This adds up to be a huge expense. Icedrive provides 10GB of free space, not only at a low price but also with a lifetime version of 5TB. Alright, maybe you're ready to start using Icedrive. So how do you migrate a large amount of data from Google Drive to Icedrive?

3 Ways to Migrate Google Drive to Icedrive

Here are three ways to do it:

Way 1: Download & Upload

1. you can download the data from Google Drive one by one to your device.
2. upload them to Icedrive

This seems to be a simple way. But you have to prepare a sufficiently large hard disk and you need to manually download and upload these data.

Way 2: Using app of Google Drive and Icedrive
