How to Transfer Files from Dropbox Business to Amazon S3

If your organization stored a large number of files in a Dropbox Business environment that needs to be migrated to Amazon S3, you can use the CloudFuze platform to automate the migration and speed it up. Without using CloudFuze, companies may need to spend weeks, if not, months for the manual migration to get completed. Continue reading to know more about how CloudFuze can automate Dropbox to Amazon S3 migration.

Step 1: Create a CloudFuze Account

Go to and create a CloudFuze account. You can sign up for a limited 30-day free trial. However, for the actual migration, you need to sign up for a plan or reach out to our support team for a quotation.
