MultCloud: Manage all Cloud Drives from one location

Martin Brinkmann
Dec 14, 2015

MultCloud is an online service that provides you with the means to manage all of your cloud hosting accounts, and to transfer data effortlessly between those accounts.

If you have access to more than one cloud drive, and chance is quite high that you do even if you don't use these storage solutions actively, then you may have noticed that it is quite difficult to manage data on all those accounts.

Cloud drive access is limited to each service, and if you want desktop access to your files, you may have installed multiple programs to ensure that.

Multcloud review

MultCloud is an online service that brings many cloud services together in a single interface. The free version is somewhat limited but the restrictions are not that bad. Basically, transfer speed is limited, data traffic is limited to 2TB, and there are no options to schedule file transfers or use filters.

MultCloud supports more than two dozen services or options at the time of writing: Dropbox, Google Drive, Amazon Drive, OneDrive, Amazon S3, Box, MediaFire, OwnCloud, FTP, SugarSync, Copy, Alresco, Flickr, MySQL, HubiC, WebDav, CloudMe, Cubby and myDrive.

Depending on the selected service, they are either integrated through authorization using the service's API, or directly by entering username, password and in some cases additional information such as a hostname or IP.

The main difference between the two options is that your credentials are save if authentication is used, which is the case for most services, while they are stored by MultCloud if you are asked to enter them directly. The latter opens up a can of (security) worms and may not be worth the benefits.

Ultimately, access to your files is granted for each service you authorize regardless of how that happens.

Each service that you have added to MultCloud is listed on its own in the left sidebar afterwards. You browse folders and files from there, and may use a context menu in the file manager to manage files. Operations include uploads and downloads, deleting or renaming, previewing files, creating new folders or copying files or folders.

The copy command enables cross-service file transfers, but you can use the transfer option displayed at the top of the service as well for that.

Closing Words

MultCloud is an interesting service for a number of reasons. First, it enables you to manage services from a central dashboard. While there is no way to combine all data in a single listing, it makes it easy to manage files nevertheless.

Second, it allows you to transfer files between services without using your own bandwidth. Useful if you need to move Gigabytes of data from one to another, for instance from OneDrive which announced storage reductions recently to a service that you decided to migrate to. The selection of services is excellent as well.

On the downside, you either authorize access to your files to a third-party service, or even hand your login credentials to the service right away which raises both privacy and security questions.

Depending on the files stored online, you may not want to provide a third-party service with access.

      Well it is a bit difficulty to distinguish between domains and files for instance.

    The comments section under this very article (3 comments) is identical to the comments section found under the following article:

    Not sure what the issue is, but have seen this issue under some other articles recently but did not report it back then.

    With the cloud, there is no such thing as unlimited storage or privacy. Stop relying on these tech scums. Purchase your own hardware and develop your own solutions.

      This is a certified reddit cringe moment. Hilarious how the article’s author tries to dress it up like it’s anything more than a png for doing the reddit corporation’s moderation work for free (or for bribes from companies and political groups)

    With Google Chrome, it’s only been 1,500 for some time now.

    Anyone who wants to force me in such a way into buying something that I can get elsewhere for free will certainly never see a single dime from my side. I don’t even know how stupid their marketing department is to impose these limits on users instead of offering a valuable product to the paying faction. But they don’t. Even if you pay, you get something that is also available for free elsewhere.

    The algorithm has also become less and less savvy in terms of e.g. English/German translations. It used to be that the bot could sort of sense what you were trying to say and put it into different colloquialisms, which was even fun because it was like, “I know what you’re trying to say here, how about…” Now it’s in parts too stupid to translate the simplest sentences correctly, and the suggestions it makes are at times as moronic as those made by Google Translations.

    If this is a deep-learning AI that learns from users’ translations and the phrases they choose most often – which, by the way, is a valuable, moneys worthwhile contribution of every free user to this project: They invest their time and texts, thereby providing the necessary data for the AI to do the thing as nicely as they brag about it in the first place – alas, the more unprofessional users discovered the translator, the worse the language of this deep-learning bot has become, the greater the aggregate of linguistically illiterate users has become, and the worse the language of this deep-learning bot has become, as it now learns the drivel of every Tom, Dick and Harry out there, which is why I now get their Mickey Mouse language as suggestions: the inane language of people who can barely spell the alphabet, it seems.

    And as a thank you for our time and effort in helping them and their AI learn, they’ve lowered the limit from what was once 5,000 to now 1,500…? A big “fuck off” from here for that! Not a brass farthing from me for this attitude and behaviour, not in a hundred years.
