How To Transfer OneDrive Files To Another Account?

OneDrive is one of the most popular cloud storage in the world today. Users can store any type of file, including photos, videos, and documents, in OneDrive and access them from any Windows PC or mobile device, and manage them easily. In addition, it integrates rich office applications to help us better collaborate. We often apply for multiple OneDrive accounts, such as personal life accounts, family accounts, and work accounts. How should we manage so many accounts? And how to transfer data from one OneDrive account to another? Here I will introduce 2 methods to migrate data in OneDrive.

Method 1: Use OneDrive's Sharing Feature to Achieve Data Migration.

Step 1: First, open 2 separate browser windows and log in to your 2 OneDrive accounts respectively.

Step 2: In OneDrive, select the file or folder you want to share and right-click, then select the "share" option.

Step 3: In the pop-up window, enter the email address of the user you want to share the file with, then click the "send" button to complete the file sharing.

Step 4: Open the other OneDrive account, view the files shared by others in the sharing feature.

Step 5: Select the file or folder shared by others, then right-click and select "copy to", then select a target folder and click the "copy here" button to complete the file migration operation.

This method has some disadvantages, such as that during the data transfer process, the browser cannot be closed, otherwise the transmission will be interrupted, and it is complicated to operate and not suitable for managing multiple accounts. If you want to synchronize data from one OneDrive to another account for a long time, then it will not be applicable. Next, I will introduce how to easily manage multiple accounts in one application and synchronize data from multiple OneDrive accounts at the same time.

Method 2: Use RiceDrive to Quickly and Easily Transfer Data Between Multiple OneDrive Cloud Storages.

RiceDrive is a professional multi-cloud storage management web application, it can transfer data between multiple cloud storages, simple and user-friendly, if you need to synchronize and manage multiple cloud storage data for a long time, then it will be the best choice, next I will introduce how to use RiceDrive.

Step 1: Log in to RiceDrive, open the RiceDrive website, enter your email address in the email input box, and accept a verification code to log in. RiceDrive does not require registration, after you log in, an account will be automatically created for you.

Once the authorization is successful, you can view the authorized cloud storage in "My drives."


Note: After the first OneDrive authorization is successful, before authorizing the second OneDrive account, you need to log in to the OneDrive website to log out of the first account and switch or log in to the second OneDrive account, and then continue the authorization in RiceDrive, otherwise the first OneDrive account will be repeatedly authorized to RiceDrive during the RiceDrive authorization.

Step 3: Create a transfer task to migrate or synchronize data from one OneDrive to another. Go to the "Transfer & Download" page, click the "New task" button to enter the task creation process. In the task creation page, check the files or folders you want to transfer in the source, select the folder where you want to store the data in the target, and then click the "start up" button to start the task.
