Transfer phone data without a PC

Services like Google Drive and Microsoft OneDrive are a lifesaver since they enable us to keep important data and files in one place.

The OneDrive offers 5 GB of free storage, while Google Drive offers 15 GB. And, once the free storage is used up, you can subscribe to any plan from each service, depending on what best meets your needs. Well, both the service plans come with 1 TB of storage.

However, many business owners migrate their data to OneDrive from Google Drive, as it offers 1 TB of storage for almost all of its plans and is more convenient for companies to rely on.

So, if you also want to migrate Google Drive to OneDrive, then here I’m going to share some quick and easy ways to make the whole procedure easy for you!
