As we all know that through cloud storage service, for example, iCloud, Google Drive, One drive, Dropbox and more, we can store files in the cloud and access those files through the Internet so that the tons of files and data will not take up much storage space of our computer’s hard drive. And it would be greater if we can share those files across different clouds because usually, we have more than one. The post here focuses on how to sync Google Drive to OneDrive.
