One frequent challenge users often face is efficiently copying their files within an existing folder hierarchy. Suppose you wish to transfer files from OneDrive to Google Drive while maintaining a similar folder arrangement. To merge folders between clouds users can use the cloud transfers feature.
Begin by selecting the specific files and folders you intend to copy or move between your cloud drives.
Click on the “Copy” or “Move” button to initiate the transfer process. Next, navigate to your destination folder and click “Copy here.”
Upon clicking the “Copy” button, you’ll be presented with transfer options that can streamline the process.
If you wish to maintain existing folders on the target drive, you can leave the default “Merge” option selected. Alternatively, the “Manual” option prompts you to make decisions for each folder manually. The “Skip” option, when enabled, ignores entire folder contents if a similarly named folder exists on the target drive.
Opt for the “Replace” option if you want to overwrite all existing files. The default choice empowers you to decide on file actions later, marking them as conflicted. Any conflicted file or folder can be resolved using the “Repair” button. Learn more about resolving conflicts at our guide on How To Fix and Retry Failed Transfer .
Once you’ve selected the “Replace Files” option, hit “Copy” to kick-start the transfer.
While the transfer is underway, monitor its status. The chosen transfer options will be clearly visible on the details page.
After some time, the transfer will be successfully completed.
Upon completion, the transferred files will seamlessly integrate into the new structure. Feel free to explore the updated arrangement in the image below.
