How to Move Photos from OneDrive to Google Drive?

Google Drive is a cloud storage service which is used to store photos, videos, and files online and shares them from anywhere on any device. It allows you to save a Web page as a PDF, recover document versions, preview files, create surveys and invitations, research almost anything, add apps to increase productivity, update spreadsheets and much more. It offers 5 GB of free storage space to all its users. If you need more storage space, then you can buy a storage plan.

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

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!

PicBackMan was really easy to setup and has been running for 3 days now backing up all my locally saved photos to Flickr. My photos are really valuable to me so it's great to be able to have them easily backed up to a secure location.
