MultCloud Review – Easily Manage Multiple Cloud Files
Today we are living in a cloud society. In the cloud world, we installed and used many cloud apps on our computers as well as mobile phones. We not only stored our files in the cloud storage services but also edited files online such as editing photos and word documents. Clouds not only help us save space on the local hard disk but also let us touch our files anywhere easily.
There are many kinds of cloud services. Cloud drives, traditional FTP, and WebDAV, etc. Some apps and programs also have cloud functions such as Evernote, Flickr, MySQL, etc. Some cloud vendors even developed several cloud products, for example, Amazon S3 and Amazon Cloud Drive. For users, in fact, people use more than one cloud tools in their life. Dropbox with Google Drive or Box with OneDrive. It is hard to give up a one even though own multiple accounts becomes a headache. More cloud accounts could get more free storage and enjoy each character. If they can be used together in one place and reduce troubles, life will be simpler. There is software released by the third-party company to combine several clouds in one window, manage them all at once. But here, we are going to recommend to you is not a software but a website. To be exact, it is a web app based on the website – MultCloud.

How to use MultCloud
After logging in MultCloud, the first thing you should do is adding clouds to it. Most clouds support OAuth authorization system so that you don’t need to input username and password in MultCloud, the last authorized step is in cloud’s official web page. After adding, you can see your clouds are listed on the left side of MultCloud’s Cloud Explorer interface. Besides clouds, there is a Share management center on the left panel. By the way, there are no limits on accounts numbers in MultCloud, either same brand or a different brand.
Under Cloud Explorer, you can manage your clouds and files in clouds like under Windows Explorer. Right-click a file in the cloud and select options: create a new folder, upload to cloud, download to local, delete, rename, cut, copy and paste, copy to, preview, share, view properties, etc. MultCloud has a search box on the right top, you can find your target files fast with related keywords. You can transfer files from one cloud service to another via copy&paste, copy to settings, drag&drop mouse. Other two highlights of MultCloud here are Share and Upload. The former has different kinds of shared link, share management center, edit share folder permission, etc. The latter can upload URL instead of files to the cloud, MultCloud will help you convert the download link to end file finally.
In Cloud Explorer, you can do easy transfer task, if you want to experience complex transfer mission, please switch to Cloud Transfer interface. Set target and destination at first, the directory can be not only the whole cloud service but a folder in the cloud is OK. Then set options like overwritten, filter, email notification. The advanced setting is scheduled, you can set daily, weekly, monthly transfer. MultCloud supports transferring even after power off. MultCloud has a task manager to check all transfer task and above-mentioned upload task.
Another MultCloud’s key feature is sync, now switch to Cloud Sync interface to have a look at it.
