Import from Google Drive is a simple feature for migrating files from Google's file storage and synchronization service to SharePoint. You can migrate a complete folder hierarchy to SharePoint while applying content types and metadata at the same time, and it will convert a file from Google Drive format to Office format.
- Global Administrator or SharePoint Administrator permissions are always recommended.
- Connect as an administrator to migrate files of all the Google Drive accounts on your domain.
- Select the action you want to perform from the Migration menu.
- Connect to the desired Google Drive Account by clicking Connect and allowing your Sharegate to access your Google Drive.
- Select your destination, and click Connect.
- Select the destination target.
- Click Next.
- Select the files you would like to copy to the destination library and either drag and drop them into the destination or click Copy Now.
- Once the action is completed, the migration report will show any successes, warning, or errors. See Migration Report for more details.
