Can You Link Two Google Drive Accounts?
For Google Drive App – Backup and Sync, currently, there is no way to link two Google Drive accounts and manage them in one interface. Fortunately, you can rely on third party software to link your GDrive accounts (two or multiple) together for better and easier management. As far as I know, there are more than one such programs which can merge Google Drive accounts for you. However, here, I’d like to recommend the popular and free one called MultCloud. According to its name, it can easily and safely manage multiple cloud drive storages for its users.
How to Link Google Drive Accounts?
How to link multiple Google Drive accounts with the help of MultCloud service? Let me introduce you step by step.
To make use of MultCloud, first of all, you need to create an account of it to get access to its services. You can easily find the entrance of sign up in its official website given above. Account creation is completely free of charge.
When successfully created a MultCloud account, you can start linking your cloud drive accounts under the help of “Add Cloud Drives” feature.

Step 2. In the next screen, it will ask for your authorization to allow MultCloud get access to your GD account. Just click on “Add Google Drive Account” to continue.
Tips: If you do not have a Google Drive account yet, it does not matter, you can create one here.

The wonderful function of MultCloud is that it not only supports multiple Google Drives, but also support other cloud brand drives like Dropbox, OneDrive, Mega, ADrive, etc. (view all supported cloud drives by MultCloud >>)
Add other cloud drive accounts with the same steps as adding Google Drive to MultCloud platform. Finally, you can view all the clouds added to MultCloud in the left menu in Cloud Explorer tab.
Of course, since MultCloud supports those cloud drives above, you can transfer/migrate/move/sync files among them in MultCloud platform. Isn’t this amazing?
What’s more? You can also manage a cloud account in MultCloud just like in the cloud drive itself. Create a new folder in this cloud account; upload files from local to this cloud; download this file from cloud to local devices; delete unwanted files; rename a file; cut or copy files, move to another cloud account in MultCloud and paste the file to it; preview a file in this platform; share a file to others; copy to (move) a file to another cloud storage; view properties of this file, etc. Just pick up a cloud drive in the left menu and right-click on target file/folder and you will see all operations you can do to it.
Link cloud drive storage space
One more important point is that this is also a way to combine all your cloud account storages, especially to integrate all the free storages assigned to you by each of your cloud account: 15 GB for each Google account, 2 GB for every Dropbox account, 5 GB for each OneDrive account and so on. Though the free storage space for each cloud account is small, it grows big when put all these free quotas together in MultCloud. Thus, you may not have to pay for extra storage space with linking all your cloud drive storages together and it is convenient to exchange files among those storages with the help of MultCloud. Isn’t this amazing?
More amazingly, MultCloud has its Chrome extension which is convenient to be used on your Chrome explorer. The extension App is also free. If you want get higher speed in file transmission, higher level technical support or scheduled file transfer/sync, you can apply for its Premium plan.
