Google Drive to Box Migrations


Box is the secure collaboration tool that offers the best security and information governance across the storage providers. They tick all the boxes from strict data privacy, residency, and industry compliance. Migrating your team from Google Drive into Box can be daunting as Google is quite the simple platform that doesn't offer too much when it comes to extensive features and security. However, migrating out of Google Drive has its challenges, this ranges from duplicate files in the same directory to different proprietary Google file document types that other platforms do not natively support.

Step 4: Map users and team drives (Workspace)

If you're moving from Google Workspace, you can add and map users, drives, and folders from the source and destination. All of these are covered under the Permissions step. If you do decide to migrate permissions, more options will appear to refine your choices.

Step 5: Project Options 

Movebot is fully customizable right down to the region the migration is run from and how many worker nodes you wish to run on each individual migration. When migrating from Google to Box we would recommend no more than 3 nodes per migration, as there are limitations on the provider's end that could impact your migration negatively if adding too many nodes.
