Cloud Storage is one of the best concepts raised in the past decade which has actually changed the way we used to save our contents, especially pictures and videos, and have access to them. With emerging more Cloud Storage services with different options and features, most of the users are already using more than one service at a time, and sometimes you may just confuse which file has been stored in which Cloud Storage service and you have to install so many applications to be able to manage files on multiple cloud storage services.
In this AW Center article, we show you a few efficient ways to control and manage files on different cloud storage services from a single place. You get to access your contents from different cloud applications, copy and paste the files between different services and search for a file in multiple Cloud Storages using a universal search box.
So, let’s get started
1. ES File Explorer File Manager
ES File Explorer is one of the best Android file manager applications and is a must have app for any Android user. (Read: Must Have Android Applications for New Users)

What we like most about ZeroPC Cloud Navigator is its Universal Search feature which enables you to search for a specific file regardless of its location and the service it’s been saved in.
You can also see all your files and folders stored in different Cloud Storage services in a single place, and even create a personalized Collection and add your favorite files in to one single virtual folder.
