How to Transfer Google Drive Data to OneDrive Easily.
As part of the data transfer project, Google now allows you to transfer copies of your data on Google Drive directly to Onedrive. Like third party apps like Multicloud, this is also server side transfer, so you don’t need to download or upload any files from your local computer. Nor will it charge you a lot of data. In any case, the process may take a few (or even days) depending on the data in your Google Drive. Let’s see how it works.

Transfer your Google Drive data to OneDrive with ease
To transfer data, open the Google archive page where you can download all your Google data. Here, in the Select Data to Include section, click the Deselect All button.
Now scroll through the download and select the Drive option by checking the box next to it. This will move the files to the My Drive & Computers section, but not to the files in the General section.
If you only want to migrate a few folders from disk, you can also do so by clicking on the â€œAll Disk Dataâ€ toast below it and selecting only the folders you want to migrate. Scroll down again and click Next Step.
Now open the dropdown menu in the shipping method options and select “Add to OneDrive”. You can find other settings here, such as export frequency, file type and size. You don’t need to change anything, just scroll down and click Link Accounts and Create Export.
You will be redirected to sign in to your Microsoft account. If it’s already connected, click Agree to transfer files from Google Drive.
You will then be prompted for your Google password to begin the transfer process.
That’s it, your translation will start. As mentioned, this can take anywhere from a few minutes to several days, depending on the details in your account.
However, you will receive an email after the process is complete.
You can open OneDrive right from here and find the folders under Apps Google Upload your data.
If you transfer files larger than 2GB in one go, they will be compressed into Zip64 files. But Google Takeout gives you the option to set the default file size to 2GB. Thus, exports exceeding this size will be split into multiple files. So, if you haven’t changed any other setting, you can transfer files by splitting them.
