Mega is a popular file hosting service that allows users to upload and share files online. On the other hand, OneDrive is a cloud storage service provided by Microsoft, which comes as a part of the Office 365 package or can be used as a standalone service. Frequently, users may want to transfer files from Mega to OneDrive, whether for backup purposes, easy access, or to share with others. In this article, we will explore different methods for transferring files from Mega to OneDrive.

Method 1: Download to Computer, Then Upload to OneDrive

The most straightforward way to transfer Imgur albums to Google Drive is by manually downloading the images from the Imgur website and then uploading the images to Drive. Here are the steps:

  1. Download the Mega file to your computer using the download button in the Mega interface.

  2. Log in to your OneDrive account on your computer's web browser.

  3. Click on the "Upload" button in the upper right corner of the OneDrive interface.

  4. Select the file from your computer that you downloaded from Mega.

  5. Wait for the file to upload to OneDrive.

This manual method gives you full control over what gets transferred and where it's stored in OneDrive. But it can be time-intensive for large transfers.

Method 2: Use Both Services' Applications

Another option is to use the applications provided by both services to transfer files directly. Here's how you can do it:

  • Install the OneDrive application on your computer if you haven't already. You can download it from the Microsoft website.

  • Open the Mega application on your computer.

  • Locate the file you want to transfer and right-click on it.

  • Select "Share" from the context menu.

  • A sharing dialog box will appear. Click on the "Copy Link" button.

  • Open the OneDrive application on your computer.

  • Click on the upload button and paste the Mega sharing link into the respective field.

  • Click "Open" and the file will be automatically transferred from Mega to OneDrive.

The main downside of this method is it shares the images to Google Photos rather than Drive. However, Photos syncs seamlessly with Drive so you can easily access the transferred albums from both services.

  1. Go to website.

  2. Create a new folder.

  3. Copy the shared files into this new folder.

  1. Sign up for API keys from MEGA and Microsoft Azure.

  2. Use the MEGA API to retrieve file data and URLs to download.

  3. Download the files from MEGA to your server or computer.

  4. Use the OneDrive API to upload the files to the destination folder.

  5. Set up a cron job or scheduled function to run the transfer script.

Coding a custom transfer solution provides the most flexibility. But it requires API expertise and maintenance.


Regardless of the method you choose, make sure to have sufficient storage space available on your computer or OneDrive account to accommodate the transferred files. Additionally, keep in mind that file transfer speeds may vary depending on your internet connection and file size. hope this helps you transfer files from Mega to OneDrive efficiently and effortlessly.
