OneDrive to Dropbox Files Migration Assistant, 0 Downloading Involved


Microsoft OneDrive and Dropbox have a lot in common. Both of them offer a free plan. They both offer a cross-platform synchronization software. You can synchronize your stuff from your Windows, Mac, Windows Phone, iOS and Android. These are both feature-rich platforms with various file sharing, collaboration, offline access and version history features. OneDrive and Dropbox are both known for their stringent security measures.

Nonetheless, certain circumstances may force you to make a switch. Here are some of the major ones that come to my mind:


Method 1: Manually Download and Re-upload Files

This method involves downloading all files from your OneDrive account, and re-uploading on Dropbox. The problem with this method is it involves a lot of work. Moreover, if your Internet speed is not good and consistent, it will take a lot of your time. However, there is one advantage. It’s free. You don’t need to subscribe for third-party services.

  1. Open OneDrive and sign-in to your account.

  2. Click on My Files.

  3. Select the folder(s) you want to download.

  4. Click on the Download icon.

  5. Your download will start. Once it is finished, open the compressed file downloaded to your PC using a free tool such as 7-Zip File Manager.

  6. Open Dropbox, and sign-in to your account.

  7. Click on the Upload button, select Folder.


Method 2: Using Easy Cloud Manager

Easy Cloud Manager is the most secure and instant way to transfer cloud files online. You may navigate through your files using the ECR from your browser, just like you would on your computer using File Explorer.

ECM is fully Web-based. Your files are transferred using ECM’s server bandwidth. As a result, you don’t need to download any files and eventually, you save a lot of your precious time.



1. Open Easy Cloud Manager and register a new account.

2. In the Home tab, click on Add New Drive.


3. Select OneDrive.

4. Click on Add New Drive.

5. Sign-in to your OneDrive account, and provide the required account access privileges.


6. Similarly, add your Dropbox account.

7. Once you’ve added both the accounts, switch to the Operations tab.

8. Click on Data Transfer.

9. Click on Select Source, and choose your OneDrive account.

10. Click on Load Drive.

11. Similarly, click on Select Target and add your Dropbox as the target account.

12. To instantly transfer your files, click on the Transfer Now button. To schedule your transfer, click on the Schedule Task option, and choose your desired schedule (once, daily, weekly, or monthly).
