How to Backup Amazon Cloud Drive Photos to Google Drive on Android

Backing up photos from Amazon Cloud Drive to Google Drive on your Android device ensures you have multiple copies of your images stored safely in the cloud. This prevents losing precious memories if one cloud storage service fails or is compromised. The backup process is straightforward once you understand how to connect the two cloud platforms on your Android device.

Connecting Amazon Cloud Drive and Google Drive on Android

To start backing up your Amazon Cloud Drive photos, you first need to connect your Amazon and Google accounts through a cloud syncing app on your Android device. Here are the steps:

Connecting Amazon Cloud Drive and Google Drive on Android

  • Download and install a reputable cloud sync app like CloudSync, MultCloud, Odrive, or Cloudsfer from the Google Play Store on your Android device.
  • Open the app and log into both your Amazon Cloud Drive and Google Drive accounts.
  • The app will then sync the two cloud storage services, allowing you to transfer files between them.

Locating Photos to Backup from Amazon Cloud Drive

Once your Amazon Cloud Drive and Google Drive are connected via the cloud sync app, you need to navigate to your Amazon Cloud Drive photos folder to select images to backup. Here is how:

  • Open the cloud sync app and go to the Amazon Cloud Drive section.
  • Select the folder or albums containing the photos you want to backup. This is usually in the Pictures or Photos folder.
  • You can also use the search bar in the Amazon Cloud Drive section to search for specific photos.

Selecting and Backing Up Photos to Google Drive

With your photos located in Amazon Cloud Drive, you can now select them and start the backup process to Google Drive:

  • Browse and select the individual photos or full albums you want to backup. You can select multiple files at once.
  • Hit the transfer button in the app to start backing up the selected photos to your connected Google Drive account.
  • A syncing progress bar will appear showing the status of the backup.
  • Once completed, you can go to Google Drive to confirm the photos have been copied over.

Scheduling Regular Backups from Amazon Cloud Drive

Rather than manually selecting and backing up photos each time, you can also schedule regular automatic backups from Amazon Cloud Drive to Google Drive:

  • Go to the settings section of your cloud syncing app.
  • Choose the option to setup scheduled transfers.
  • Select Amazon Cloud Drive as the source and Google Drive as the destination.
  • Pick how often you want backups to occur (daily, weekly, etc) and at what time.
  • The app will now automatically backup any new photos from Amazon Cloud to Google Drive at the interval you selected.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer
Pausing Motion testimonialPausingMotionsmugmug
I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!
