Follow our simple guide to link multiple GoogleDrive Accounts on iOS and copy files between your accounts:
Link one or more GoogleDrive accounts to FileBrowser Professional on your iPad or iPhone. Tap "Add Location" from the FileBrowser Professional home screen and add a GoogleDrive location, name it and tap "Save".
Now tap the new GoogleDrive location on your FileBrowser Professional home screen to link an account.
