Merge Onedrive Accounts

Why need to merge multiple OneDrive accounts?

As we all know, OneDrive offers its users 5GB of free storage only, which can be run out of quickly. Therefore, most OneDrive users sign up for more than one OneDrive personal account to get more free storage and store a large number of files on multiple accounts simultaneously.

However, users need to switch their OneDrive accounts frequently. Be tired of logging in and logging out two or multiple OneDrive accounts each time, many people may think about merging all their OneDrive accounts into one so that they can enjoy larger storage space without switching accounts.

Connecting the idle space (might be 1TB or more) of the paid OneDrive accounts and turn the storage into online backup storage and use it to backup your critical data in a professional way.
