Moving from OneDrive to Google Drive

On Monday I shared directions for moving from Google Drive to OneDrive. I did that to help people who are leaving a school district that uses Google Workspaces for one that is using Office 365. Of course, it also happens that at the end of the school year some people will leave an Office 365 environment for a Google Workspaces environment. If that’s the case for you, watch this short video that I created for you. 

In the video I demonstrate how to download files from your OneDrive account and then upload them to a Google Drive account. In the video I also point out the small problem that occurs when you import a zip file into Google Drive. There are two remedies to that problem. The first is to use a third-party add-on in Google Drive to extract the contents of your zip file. The second is to skip the zip file and just download the individual files that you need from your OneDrive account before uploading them as individual files in your Google Drive account. Neither option is ideal, but they both work. 

On a related note, if you’re leaving one school district that uses Google Workspaces for another that uses Google Workspaces, here are directions for making that move as easy as possible.
