Do You Want to Access Multiple Google Drive Accounts on One Computer Mac?
I believe that a lot of Mac users have more than one (2 or multiple) Google Drive accounts and use them for personal business or work. They are most probably encounter a problem that G-Drive App, Google Backup and Sync, doesn’t offer them with function to sync directly from one Google Drive account to another though it enables them to sync multiple Google Drive accounts Mac without shifting from one account to another.
Yes, Backup and Sync is now able to sync files from computer to different cloud accounts simultaneously by “Add New Account” feature. Yet, the source folders/directories for each account mustn’t be the same. That is to say, only in different sources and different destinations, can google drive multiple accounts mac sync available.
Then, what if someone wants the same content to be saved in two Google Drive accounts on Mac? Do they have to first of all log in one Google account and sync target files from local to it. Then, log out of the account and connect to another one to sync again? No, they don’t have to! There is another way to directly sync files from one cloud to another.
How to Manage Multiple Google Drive Accounts Mac?
In the above said that there is a way to achieve cloud to cloud synchronization. To do this, you have to firstly get access to related cloud accounts in one platform.
Link Google Drive Accounts
Access multiple Google Drive accounts in one place needs a platform to link them together. Here, MultCloud, a web-based multiple cloud drives manager, is recommended.
To make use of MultCloud, first thing first, create an account of it from its official website.
Then, add your Google Drive accounts to its platform. In Cloud Explorer tab, click “Add Cloud Drives” in the left menu and choose “Google Drive” in the right cloud drive list. Then, follow the guidance to finish this operation.
Add Google Drive
1. You can only add one account in one time. To add all your GDrive accounts, you have to repeat the operation.
2. Make sure you give different name to your different Google accounts to distinguish them.
After you adding your Google Drive accounts to MultCloud, you successfully connect multiple Google Drive accounts! Now, you can view them in Cloud Explorer tab.
Tips: Here, we will take two Google Drive accounts on one computer for example.

You can upload/download files from/to Mac computer, delete unwanted items, cut/copy photos from one Google account and paste in another account and so on.

Sync Multiple Google Drive Accounts Mac
Besides what you can do in different accounts above, you can also transfer files from one Google Drive to another and the most importantly sync among different accounts.
In Cloud Sync tab, choose one Google account as source in the left and another account as destination in the right.
Sync from One Google Drive to Another
You can set a schedule of such sync once a day, once a week or once a month. Thus, you can keep target files in destination account the same as source ones.
You can also specify the sync type as one-way sync or two-way sync; order email notification of the task result; filter certain extension files to be synced or not to be synced, etc
