Copy Google Shared Drive to an Office 365 Group

This option allows administrators to move content from multiple Google Shared Drives to Office 365 Group Sites ("Documents" library) in a single operation.

info

NOTE: If you have not already performed the prerequisite steps in Google, please go to this section first.  Once the prerequisite configuration is complete, return here to continue with the migration.

This operation has the following requirements for use:

·The Google Drive pre-requisites must be configured successfully prior to the migration.

·The account used to perform the migration into Office 365 Groups needs to be a minimum of a Site Collection Administrator in this Office 365 tenant.

·The person performing the migration will need to know the relationship (user mapping) between each source Google Shared Drive account and their corresponding Office 365 Group name and Office 365 user account.

·The Office 365 Group and its Site must already exist.

To migrate the content of multiple Google Shared Drives to Office 365 Groups, perform the following:

1.On the Drives tab click Copy Google Drive and selec "Copy Google Drive to Office 365 Groups".
copy google to office00001
The Google Drives to Office 365 Groups Migrator wizard opens.

2.Select the Copy Google Shared Drives option.

6.Click the Load from Google button or Load From CSVNote that Load from CSV will allow you to load users from a CSV file, which is the faster option as only the listed users are loaded (this CSV file can be created with the help of the Google User Mapping report).
Select the ones you want to include in this migration, click Next.

info

NOTE: For a large number of Google Drives (>1000), the Load from Google option may take several minutes to complete.

7.Check the Re-Map Users option and load your Group mapping CSV file (Please see this section for instructions on how to create a CSV Group Mapping file for Google Drive to Office 365 Group, user mapping may also be included in this CSV)
copy google to microsoft teams05
The CSV for Group mapping is required so that the software can properly resolve the differences between your users' Google Shared Drive account and the corresponding Office 365 Group name as well as maintain content authorship, it is very important for Google Shared Drives as they have unique ID indicators.  If your user accounts differ between Google Drive and Office 365 then you will want to add your user mapping to this same file.  In the example below, illustrate mapping a source Google Shared Drive (unique ID and users) to an Office 365 Group (Office 365 Group Account).

9.If necessary, change content and file format conversion options as described below.
 
Content Options
copy google shared drive to office 3652

Copy Content - A flag to determine if content is or is not included with this operation.  When not included the remainder of the options will become disabled.

Include Versions - The process in which Google revision history will be converted into Office 365 Group versions.  Please note that this option is only referring to the major revisions (those shown as the "less detailed revisions") and not those that are automatically generated within Google Drives (those shown as the "more detailed" revisions).

Incremental Copy - When enabled, the migration process will identify and migrate only that content which was created, modified or versioned within the defined interval (days, weeks or months).
 
Skip files greater than - This provides the functionality to skip all files larger than the value specified.  Unit of measure is configured for MB or GB.
 
Migrate to Folder - When this option is enabled you can create a (or use an existed) root folder structure in the destination library where your source content will be migrated.

Skipped Non-Owned Files - This addresses the possible scenario where content exists in the user's Google Drive "My Drive" area which is not owned by this user.  Skipping these objects will prevent duplicate content from being migrated to the destination.

Include First Reference File Only - This option addresses the possible scenario where a user creates reference objects (links using Shift + Z in Google Drive) of a file in various locations throughout their Google Drive environment.  Skipping these additional references will prevent duplicate files from being migrated to the destination by migrating only the first reference found.  Please note that the "first" reference is defined by a list of parent folders returned from Google Drive and the first may not always be the same one on subsequent or incremental migrations.  Please also note this option is only applicable to files, all referenced folders will be copied.

Include Orphaned Files - For the purpose of this option, an orphaned file is defined as a file that was created in a folder that was shared with this user and after the file was created, their permission to the shared folder was removed.  The file still exists in the user's Google Drive, however it does not reside in any visible folder path and can only be located using the Google Drive Search Bar.  When this option is enabled, the migration will identify these orphaned files and migrate them to the mapped Office 365 Group Site's Documents library.  In this library, a new folder named "Orphaned Files" will be created which will contain all the migrated orphaned files.

info

NOTE: The use of this option can decrease overall migration performance.

Apply Filter - Optionally, select from a series of filterable parameters to include or exclude specific content during migration.

Format Conversion:
Copy Google to OneDrive8

This set of options allows you to determine how Google formatted content will be converted into Microsoft compatible content.

Advanced Options:

Enable Azure Turbo Mode: When enabled, this option utilizes Microsoft's SharePoint Online Migration API to increase the migration performance and throughput. A recommendation for optimal use of this API is larger sets of data; the more content, the better the throughput. Please review the User Manual for additional information as well as recommended configuration as this process is a resource intensive operation.

Because this API uses Azure storage as a staging area for the migration, it requires that you provide an Azure storage location. The options are to either utilize Microsoft supplied storage or to provide your own Azure storage location. If you wish to use your own Azure account, you must provide both the Azure Account Name as well as the corresponding Acces Key. If you cannot supply this information, please search our online Knowledge Base, User Manual or contact Support for additional information before proceeding or consider using the Microsoft Supplied Storage option. For more information please see the Azure Turbo Mode section.

info

NOTE: this function is optional and is only used to increase the migration performance to SharePoint Online or OneDrive for Business in Office 365. It does not provide any additional functionality that is not available when this option is disabled.

·Microsoft Provided Storage: This option allows you to use Microsoft provided Azure storage instead of providing your own for the purpose of utilizing Azure Turbo Mode.

·User Provided Storage: This option allows you to provide your own Azure Storage instead of using one provided by Microsoft for the purpose of utilizing Azure Turbo Mode. It requires that you provide both your Azure Blob Storage Account Name as well as its corresponding Access Key by clicking the "Select" button to the right. If you cannot supply this information, please search our online Knowledge Base, User Manual or contact Support for additional information before proceeding.

info

NOTE: User Provided storage will give you access to Azure logs for a longer period of time than Microsoft provided storage. It will also allow you to perform the migration faster with less throttling.

Send Notification: When selected, this feature will send emails to the listed recipients once Migrations are completed. Enter a specific user email address. For two or more, separate each email address with a comma. Set up User Notifications here in order to use this feature. 

Create User Specific Log File - If you would like a user specific log file (.txt format) created for each migrated Google Drive, that will be saved directly to that Group's "Documents" library, check this option before you finish.  This log file will contain all the content that was included in the migration with both source and target URLs as well as any file renaming that took place and skipped files due to lack of ownership.
NOTE: Create user Specific log file is disabled if Azure Turbo Asynchronous mode is on. Supported only for CSOM or Azure Turbo Synchronous modes.

7.Check the Re-Map Users option and load your Group mapping CSV file (Please see this section for instructions on how to create a CSV Group Mapping file for Google Drive to Microsoft Teams and see this section for an overview on how to get a list of your Team Sites. Note that user mapping may also be included in this CSV)
copy google to microsoft teams05
The CSV for Group mapping is required so that the software can properly resolve the differences between your users' Google account and the corresponding Microsoft Teams Group name as well as maintain content authorship. You can also map to Teams Channels. If your user accounts differ between Google Drive and Microsoft Teams then you will want to add your user mapping to this same file.  In the example below, lines 1-3 illustrate mapping a source Google Drive to a Microsoft Teams Group by name while lines 4-5 in the same file are used to map the Google user accounts to their respective Office 365 user accounts to maintain item authorship. 
 
sales@company.com,MicrosoftTeams Group Name
marketing@company.com,MicrosoftTeams MarketingGroup
IT@company.com,IT Group
scott@company.com,swilson@contoso.com
bill@company.com,bgeorge@contoso.com
 
If you wish to migrate one or more source accounts to a single Group library while also remapping the user account for the purpose of metadata and sharing, please use the following format in your mapping file.
 
user@google.com,MicrosoftTeamsGroupName(user@contoso.com)
 
The software will migrate the content from the source drive "user@google.com" to the Documents library in the group "MicrosoftTeamsGroupName".  The metadata and shared permissions of Google user "user@google.com" will be mapped to the Office 365 user account "user@contoso.com".
 
If you would like to migrate source accounts to a target Teams channel, use the following mapping.
 
scott@company.com,swilson@contoso.com,ChannelName
 
The third column in this CSV will map the users to the specific target channel.

info

NOTE: When using the Teams Channel, keep the following in mind:

·When adding a Teams Channel to your CSV be sure to enter the name exactly, it is case sensitive. If the name is entered improperly Essentials will assume it is a folder and will create a folder with this name on the target site collection.

·When the channel column is missing in the mapping then the migration will use the General channel by default.

·When the channel is missing on the target, then a folder will be created with the channel's name in the Shared Documents section of MS Teams.

8.Click Check MS Team in order to begin the validation process. This process will validate that the supplied user mapping is correct (MS Teams were located) and check to determine if each Ms Team currently has a Site provisioned.  Click Next.
copy google to microsoft teams06
If the group is not found, you may continue however no content for this mapping will be migrated.  Alternatively, you may go back one page and remove the selected source Google Drive or modify your mapping file, reload the CSV and click the Check MS Team button again.

9.If necessary, change content and file format conversion options as described below.

Skip files greater than - This provides the functionality to skip all files larger than the value specified.  Unit of measure is configured for MB or GB.
 
Migrate to folder - When this option is enabled, you can create a (or use an existing) root folder structure in the destination library where your source content will be migrated. You will need to define the path like this example:

/My Source Content/2017

In the above example, the folder "My Source Content" and subfolder "2017" will be created in the root library of your destination and all source content will be migrated to this folder location.

info

NOTE: The 'Migrate to folder' option can be used when migrating to a MS Teams Channel. This option will create a new sub-folder in the channel or use an existing sub-folder by this name.

Skipped Non-Owned Objects - This addresses the possible scenario where content exists in the user's Google Drive "My Drive" area which is not owned by this user.  Skipping these objects will prevent duplicate content from being migrated to the destination.

Copy Google Drives to OneDrive for Business

This option allows administrators to move content of multiple Google Drives to OneDrive for Business in a single move.

info

NOTE: If you have not already performed the prerequisite steps in Google, please go to this section first.  Once the prerequisite configuration is complete, return here to continue with the migration.

This operation requires the following permissions:

·The Google Drive pre-requisites must be configured successfully prior to the migration.

·The account used to perform the upload needs to be a minimum of Site Collection Administrator in this Office 365 tenant.

·The person performing the migration will need to know the relationship (user mapping) between each source Google Shared Drive account and their corresponding OneDrive account.

·Each user account must have either a SharePoint or OneDrive license assigned to it in Office 365.

To migrate content of multiple Google Drives, perform the following:

1.On the Drives tab click "Copy Google Drive" and select, Copy Google Drive to OneDrive.

5.Click the Load from SharePoint button or Load From CSVNote that Load from CSV will allow you to load users from a CSV file, which is the faster option as only the listed users are loaded.
 
Select the account you wish to migrate.

info

NOTE:

·For a large number of Google Drives, it's recommended to load them by pressing the Load from CSV button.

·The CSV requires only 1 Google user per.

6.You can also choose to Load and Apply report option, which allows you to load and apply an Analyze Google Drive report, which then sets the Migration Priority for each user mentioned in the report. Click Next to continue.

info

NOTE: Each Migration Priority value can be changed if you click on the value in the Migration Priority columns (without user selection). It changes the migration queue but does not change the original report file. Priority in the wizard is not saved after the wizard has been closed.

7.Check the Re-Map Users option and load your user mapping CSV file (Please see this section for instructions on how to create a CSV User Mapping file for Google Drive to OneDrive).  User mapping is required so the software can properly resolve the differences between your users' Google and Office 365 accounts.  
Copy Google to OneDrive5

8.Click Check for users personal sites in order to begin the validation process. This process will validate that the supplied user mapping is correct (Office 365 user accounts were located) and check to determine if each user currently has a OneDrive for Business for the site provisioned.  If one or more valid users do not have a OneDrive for Business site currently provisioned, select them and check Create personal sites for the selected users option. Click Next.

9.If necessary, change content and file format conversion options as described below:
 
Content Options:
Copy Google to OneDrive7

·Copy Content - A flag to determine if content is or is not included with this operation.  When not included the remainder of the options will become disabled.

·Include Versions - The process in which Google revision history will be converted into OneDrive for Business versions.  Please note that this option is only referring to the major revisions (those shown as the "less detailed revisions") and not those that are automatically generated within Google Drives (those shown as the "more detailed" revisions). You can select whether you would like to:

oInclude All Versions

oInclude The Most Recent Versions - this option allows you to specify how many recent versions you would like to copy the content from.

·Incremental Copy - When enabled, the migration process will identify and migrate only that content which was created, modified or versioned within the defined interval (days, weeks or months). To perform a Delta migration, enter zero in the field and select days as the time period. Delta migration is designed to be used in scenarios where both the source and destination may be modified during the course of the migration.

info

NOTE: delta migration compares dates between source and destination to determine which content to include, so it will take more time to process than an incremental migration.

·Skip Files Greater Than - When enabled, this option will skip any source files that are greater than the value specified (in MB or GB). An entry will be added to the post-migration log indicating which file(s) were skipped due to this configuration.

·Migrate to Folder - When this option is enabled, you can create, or use an existing, root folder structure in the destination library where your source content will be migrated.  You will need to define the path, for example:
/My Source Content/2017
In the above example, the folder "My Source Content" and sub-folder "2017" will be created in the root library of your destination and all source content will be migrated to this folder location.

·Copy Permissions - Will convert Google shared permissions into OneDrive for Business shared permissions.

info

NOTE: Select the "Copy Permissions" option in order to copy content permissions.

·Skipped Non-Owned Files - This addresses the possible scenario where content exists in the user's Google Drive "My Drive" area which is not owned by this user.  Skipping these objects will prevent duplicate content from being migrated into OneDrive for Business.

·Include First Reference File Only - This option addresses the possible scenario where a user creates reference objects (links using Shift + Z in Google Drive) of a file in various locations throughout their Google Drive environment.  Skipping these additional references will prevent duplicate files from being migrated into OneDrive for Business by migrating only the first reference found.  Please note that the "first" reference is defined by a list of parent folders returned from Google Drive and the first may not always be the same one on subsequent or incremental migrations.  Please also note this option is only applicable to files, all referenced folders will be copied.

·Include Orphaned Files - For the purpose of this option, an orphaned file is defined as a file that was created in a folder that was shared with this user and after the file was created, their permission to the shared folder was removed.  The file still exists in the user's Google Drive, however it does not reside in any visible folder path and can only be located using the Google Drive Search Bar.  When enabled, the migration will identify these orphaned files and migrate them to the mapped OneDrive for Business Documents library.  In this library, a new folder named "Orphaned Files" will be created which will contain all the migrated orphaned files.  The use of this option can decrease overall migration performance.

·Apply Filter - This feature allows the inclusion or exclusion of items by user defined criteria, such as date, size, file extension, file name, or file owner.
 
Note: the Apply Filter functionality is only applied to selected containers (i.e. site, lists or folders). If you select specific content (documents or items) then those objects will be included with the operation regardless of the filter applied. If you want to selectively include content, please select the container that this content resides in and apply the filter or apply the filter against the container first, then select the remaining content.
 
For the File Extension and Exclude Folders parameters only, you can use "," to set more than 1 criteria. For example, use this format "png,docx,pptx" to include multiple file extensions.
 
"Size" filter should have a whole number without decimals. It  is recommended that users not use the operators "Equal" and "Not Equal" to avoid difficulties with accurate file size, if the file size is greater than 1 MB.
 
Use the "Save Filter" option to save filter settings to a file and load them in different wizards or the Profile Manager.

Enable Azure Turbo Mode: When enabled, this option utilizes Microsoft's SharePoint Online Migration API to increase the migration performance and throughput. A recommendation for optimal use of this API is larger sets of data; the more content, the better the throughput. Please review the User Manual for additional information as well as recommended configuration as this process is a resource intensive operation.

Because this API uses Azure storage as a staging area for the migration, it requires that you provide an Azure storage location. The options are to either utilize Microsoft supplied storage or to provide your own Azure storage location. If you wish to use your own Azure account, you must provide both the Azure Account Name as well as the corresponding Acces Key. If you cannot supply this information, please search our online Knowledge Base, User Manual or contact Support for additional information before proceeding or consider using the Microsoft Supplied Storage option. For more information please see the Azure Turbo Mode section.

info

NOTE: this function is optional and is only used to increase the migration performance to SharePoint Online or OneDrive for Business in Office 365. It does not provide any additional functionality that is not available when this option is disabled.

·Microsoft Provided Storage: This option allows you to use Microsoft provided Azure storage instead of providing your own for the purpose of utilizing Azure Turbo Mode.

·User Provided Storage: This option allows you to provide your own Azure Storage instead of using one provided by Microsoft for the purpose of utilizing Azure Turbo Mode. It requires that you provide both your Azure Blob Storage Account Name as well as its corresponding Access Key by clicking the "Select" button to the right. If you cannot supply this information, please search our online Knowledge Base, User Manual or contact Support for additional information before proceeding.

info

NOTE: User Provided storage will give you access to Azure logs for a longer period of time than Microsoft provided storage. It will also allow you to perform the migration faster with less throttling.

Send Notification: When selected, this feature will send emails to the listed recipients once Migrations are completed. Enter a specific user email address. For two or more, separate each email address with a comma. Set up User Notifications here in order to use this feature. 

Create User Specific Log File - If you would like a user specific log file (.txt format) created for each migrated Google Drive, that will be saved directly to that Group's "Documents" library, check this option before you finish.  This log file will contain all the content that was included in the migration with both source and target URLs as well as any file renaming that took place and skipped files due to lack of ownership.
NOTE: Create user Specific log file is disabled if Azure Turbo Asynchronous mode is on. Supported only for CSOM or Azure Turbo Synchronous modes.
