How To Transfer Samsung Cloud To Another Cloud Drive
In case you are a paying Samsung Cloud member, Samsung says they will match your storage capacity in OneDrive free of charge for 1 year.

The sync module allows you to sync your data between two cloud drives, and the management module allows you to do something you have always wanted to do - it allows you to access your data from all the cloud drives connected to the software, in one place, and while you can perform routine tasks such as creating, copying, renaming and deleting files and folders, you can do one more thing that you cannot do anywhere else - you can transfer your data from one cloud to another in one click, whenever you want.

Here is how to use InClowdz to manage your cloud drive accounts:
Step 1: Click the Management module from the sidebar. You will see a list of your connected accounts under it.
Step 2: Click the account and the contents of the drive will be displayed.
Step 3: You can create new files and folders, copy, rename or delete them, and transfer contents from selected cloud drive to another easily.
Samsung Cloud is shutting down soon and if you need to save your data, Samsung gives you a way to download it to a USB drive or Microsoft OneDrive. But, if you want to transfer Samsung Cloud to another drive, you need to use other software such as Wondershare InClowdz that helps you transfer Samsung Cloud to your chosen cloud seamlessly and provide advanced tools to help you manage your array of cloud drive accounts easily and intuitively.
OneDrive is integrated well in Samsung phones and that can work well for you if you have less than 5 GB of data since that is the free storage OneDrive offers. If you paid for storage in Samsung Cloud, Samsung would provide you with the same storage capacity in Microsoft OneDrive free of charge for a year, and post that you can choose what to do. If you are not a paying user, you might want to transfer Samsung Cloud to another cloud storage that offers more storage such as pCloud, Dropbox, or Google Drive.
