Does ECM Offer A Free Plan?

ECM has a free plan that offers a limited bandwidth transfer every month. Once you reach the transfer quota, you will need to wait until the next month to automatically renew it.


Why Choose ECM Over Manual Cloud File Transfer?

It is also possible to manually transfer files from one account to another. When you transfer your files manually, there are no bandwidth limitations. You do not incur any third party service charges. You will have complete control over your data.


However, manual file transfer has major limitations. You will need to spend a lot of time and effort to transfer your cloud files. If you need to transfer files repetitively, we don't recommend this method.
