Is it possible to directly move files from one cloud storage provider to another, bypassing the bandwidth-intensive step of downloading the files locally and then re-uploading them?

In other words, completing a file transfer in the cloud without making it rain?

For example, [Files stored with Dropbox] --> [Files stored with Mega]

Edit: Are there any solutions apart from the dedicated, albeit pricey, services such as cloudHQ and Mover.io?

  • Noted and edited. I was hopeful that something less expensive than a paid service would be able to do the job, e.g. through the storage providers' respective APIs, etc.

  • You can use cloudsfer.com for such a migration service. Contact me at itay(@)Cloudsfer.com , and I'll see what free "credits" I can give you (in addition to the free 10GB) [DISCLAIMER: I'm the R&D Manager of Tzunami/Cloudsfer]

Do you have any coding experience?

Check out the (assuming they are made available) API's for each service and see if you can write a script to list and then store and loop through your files in one service issuing export commands with your new service as the destination.


If you are not into programming, try mover.

Mover is free for personal use! You can move data and even create a scheduled backup completely for free with our Personal Connectors such as Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive, and more.
