Samsung is pulling the plug on Samsung Cloud and you will soon be unable to access Samsung Cloud. What this means for you is that soon you will be unable to access your photos and videos unless you move them to another place. Your photos and videos are available to be downloaded from Samsung Cloud until June 30, 2021 and post this date they will be deleted from Samsung Cloud.

How To Transfer Samsung Cloud To Google Drive By Download And Upload

Samsung has a longstanding partnership with Microsoft, so it provides a ready way to transfer Samsung Cloud to OneDrive, but not as easily to other cloud service providers. To backup Samsung Cloud to other cloud service providers such as Google Drive, you must get a little more creative and spend a little more time.

How do you backup Samsung Cloud to other cloud storage such as Google Drive? You resort to the classic download and upload method where you download your content from Samsung Cloud and then you upload it to Google Drive. You need to have a USB drive handy at hand and a computer, too, if you want to use this official method to transfer Samsung Cloud to Google Drive by download and upload. If you do not have a USB drive at hand, skip to part II where you can learn how to transfer Samsung Cloud to Google Drive online.

Steps To Transfer Samsung Cloud To Google Drive Using Download And Upload

Follow these steps to create a backup and move Samsung Cloud to Google Drive using a USB flash drive and computer:

Step 1: Launch Samsung Cloud on your Samsung mobile phone

Step 2: Tap the ellipses menu located at the top-right corner

Step 3: Tap Download My Data

Step 4: Go through the steps to end your service and download your data to a USB drive (you will likely need a USB-C port flash drive for this, if not a Micro-USB one)

Now, you can use that flash drive with a computer as any other flash drive and transfer the contents of your Samsung Cloud to Google Drive using the Backup and Sync app or the website in a web browser. Here are the instructions for the website:

Step 1: Launch Google Drive here: https://drive.google.com

Step 2: Sign in with your Google credentials

Step 3: Create a new folder to store your Samsung Cloud contents and open the folder

Step 4: Next, use File Explorer on Windows or Finder on macOS to open your Samsung Cloud folder. Do not minimize the web browser window before doing this – leave it open in the backdrop.

Step 5: Drag the folder into the newly created folder in Google Drive (in the web browser) and wait for the upload to finish.

When the upload is done, your transfer of Samsung Cloud to Google Drive using download and upload is complete!

Conclusion

Samsung decided to shut down its Samsung Cloud service, leaving people clamoring for alternatives. Samsung does provide a transition to OneDrive, though, which offers 5 GB free. And, if you had paid for Samsung Cloud, Samsung will generously provide you with the same storage in Microsoft OneDrive that you had in Samsung Cloud free of charge for 1 year.

Now, what if the free 5 GB does not seem enough to you? Considering that Google Drive offers 15 GB for free, it makes more sense to move to Google Drive than OneDrive and to do that you need to download your data from Samsung Cloud onto a USB drive and then use a computer to upload it to Google Drive.

Alternatively, you have a smarter option in form of InClowdz by Wondershare, a solution that takes care of moving Samsung Cloud data to Google Drive online without you needing to download to USB and upload again. Everything is taken care of online using InClowdz servers.

InClowdz also goes a step further with boosting your productivity in more ways than one. Not only can you manage your cloud drive accounts under one umbrella, but you can also view and operate on files and folders like you do, along with the ability to sync or migrate a file or folder from one cloud to another, all within the app. This ensures that you do not waste time shuffling between myriad apps or browser tabs for each of your cloud storage providers.
