Dropbox to Dropbox File Transfer on Cloud

But just a few minutes as you’re about to upload your presentation, you get a scary notification that there’s no more space to upload it. Does it sound familiar to you? Did this ever happen to you? If so, stick with us as we lead you to a simple workaround.
Benefits of Managing Multiple Dropbox Accounts
There are numerous benefits of managing multiple Dropbox accounts — from storage, security and other perspectives.
We often run across low storage on the cloud. Managing multiple accounts helps us use our secondary account to store additional files without deleting any files.
Does your job require you to login to Dropbox on computers shared with multiple colleagues? If so, using a separate account will help you avoid exposing your private data to others. This small, yet often neglected, security practice will help you protect your privacy.
A secondary account often serves as a backup storage. As an example, you can replicate your important data to your secondary account. If your primary Dropbox account ever gets compromised, you can always use this account to restore your data. It can also help if you accidentally delete any important data.
Is It Easy to Transfer Data from Dropbox to Dropbox?
There is no official tool to automatically transfer files from one Dropbox account to another. However, third-party services like Easy Cloud Manager do a brilliant job transferring your files.
What is the Easy Cloud Manager? How to Transfer Files from Dropbox to Dropbox?
Easy Cloud Manager is a web-based app. It lets you add multiple cloud accounts and manage them from one place. You can transfer files among the same cloud service (such as Dropbox to Dropbox), or different cloud services (such as Dropbox to OneDrive, etc). It supports plenty of cloud services, including the most popular ones. It offers batch file renaming, file organization, file search, and other features.
