Default Across Cloud Folder Sync

Any decent way to sync a folder or two between OneDive and Google Drive?
Running browser versions of Word and Excel on an Android Tablet, and O365 on desktop and laptop.
Thanks.

Any reason you're using both? if you only use google drive, you won't have this issue. i installed drive file stream (new name for google drive local) at my home pc so i don't have to use my work pc to work on docs, and it's much easier than having to open google drive from a browser and upload edited docs.

Else, you'll have to manually copy or have a program that syncs the folders. i use allway sync at home since i have multiple drives to sync stuff like photos.

Have never tried it with cloud drives, but Microsoft has a free sync program "SyncToy" in x86 and 64 versions that allows you to choose both source & Destination drives, folders, etc

The web/browser based verion of Excel and Word that are able to run on the Android Tablet can only access files on OneDive. All my other stuff is stored on Google Drive.

The Synchronize Ultimate app by icecoldapps works great. Contemplating purchasing to get rid of the adds. Can anyone expound upon the privacy risks of using such an app?
Thank you.
