Do you have many cloud storage accounts? Club them up at one single place to reduce wastage of time caused by signing into different accounts. Cloud services nowadays play a very important role in our lives. Our Phone, PC, Laptop and other personal or professional devices are connected and synced with cloud services and clubbing them all at a single place is like bringing everything near ourselves.

A single user today has multiple accounts for cloud services. He uses DropBox, SkyDrive, GoogleDrive and other services to store his information in the cloud, as it offers a multitude of benefits to its users. That said, it is a daunting task to manage two or more cloud drives from a single place. You need to manage them individually. Try MultCloud.
MultCloud is a cloud aggregator tool that offers the freedom to connect to several accounts from a single place. More importantly, the free web service possesses the innate ability to copy files from one cloud storage account to another, without having to download it on your desktop and then upload from there to the desired service. It is a free web service that lets you operate your different cloud services at one single place and enhances your cloud experience.
To start using this free service, you will first need to create a MultCloud account, using which you can login to different cloud services.

Simply start using the service to connect to multiple accounts. Here I chose Google! If the service would like to access your basic information, allow it to do so.

Do the same with other services. All your folders are displayed in a sidebar to the left of the service in a proper order.
MultCloud supports Skydrive, Google Drive, DropBox, Amazon S3, Box, and SugarSync. You can add as many accounts you want, but they should be one of the mentioned above.

Manage multiple cloud accounts
MultCloud is an excellent web service and is a great time saver, as it lets you club your personal and office cloud accounts at a single place and access them using one single MultCloud login. It is useful, comes with an intuitive web interface and has got great features. Support for all the popular platforms makes it even better.
Earlier, the name of the service was ‘DropInOne’, but was changed to ‘MultCloud’ due to some trademark conflict issues with Dropbox. One thing I noticed, the application lacks support for mobile applications. Also, it cannot edit .doc and .txt files as it doesn’t have advanced built-in editing capabilities – nevertheless a useful tool overall!
