With the many cloud services available today, one can easily find oneself storing files and folders in several different clouds.

Fortunately, it is straightforward moving your files and folders to Onlime. And your files will be in good hands with us!

  • Onlime stores your files and folders in hypermodern data centers in Norway, which are powered by 100% green water energy.

  • We do not monetize user data or resell it - something that can not necessarily be said about all other cloud services...

  • We live up to the GDPR and even more so as Norway has one of the world's strictest laws for personal data.

What cloud services can I move from?

You can move files and folders to Onlime from most cloud services like Dropbox and Google Drive.

In addition to other cloud services, it is also possible to move data from WebDav and FTP / sFTP to Onlime.
