Why Need to Transfer Files from Dropbox to Amazon Cloud Drive?

As we all know, Dropbox is a wonderful network storage device with two most important functions - storage and syncing.

However, Amazon Cloud Drive does not support syncing files, instead it’s just a simple batch uploader to help you get files to your Amazon Cloud Drive account by dragging and dropping. This is a relatively laborious process, but it ensures that your files are indeed safe and secure. Because Amazon Cloud Drive stores files only in the cloud, you can only access files manually from a device with a modern Web browser and manually grab files, then manually re-upload files to Amazon Cloud Drive once any changes has been made. All make it harder to access your data compared to Dropbox with which files you access are stored on your local device.

For you, if saving a copy of your data in the cloud securely is what you want, then Amazon Cloud Drive might be a choice because its price is relatively low and it provides users with immediate and secure data storage solution. So you can use it as a backup tool to back up files from Dropbox to Amazon Cloud. But is there any solution that can copy files from Dropbox to Amazon Cloud Drive directly? You will find the answer by continuing reading the following parts.
