Move folder from Dropbox to Google Drive via File Explorer


I want to move a large folder from Dropbox to Google Drive using the Windows File Explorer, basically drag & drop or cut & paste.

When I do this, the file temporarily disappears from Dropbox, the blue ticks on the two cloud services change to syncing pink icons, then the file reappears back where it was originally in Dropbox and the blue ticks come back… so basically nothing happens.

Am I doing something wrong? Do I have to download/sync all the files onto my computer first, then move them? At the moment they are all “unsynced”, not on my actual computer, just .cloudf folders.

Hi @andrew2,
odrive cannot move files between storage providers, directly. Please take a look at this thread for more info.
