How do I save my Google content from my STU Google GSuite account?

How do I save my Google content from my STU Google GSuite account?

STU ITS will be running a migration process to copy your email from Google to O365.  However, all other Google data is your responsibility to backup and save to a new location, either in O365 or a personal Google account. 

You will need to create (if you don’t already have) a personal Google account and migrate all your STU Google account content to this personal account or to your STU O365 account. 

For Google Drive content, Google provides a Transfer tool that will transfer the drive content to a personal Google account (not your stu.ca account).  Using the transfer tool will automatically transfer all your drive files.  The transfer tool will not transfer contacts, calendar, or any other Google related content.  For information about the Google Transfer tool, click here. To transfer contacts and calendar items, see the information below. 

For Contacts and Calendar items, Google allows you the ability to export these items and import them into another account, either Google or Office 365. 

 

Alternatives for migrating Google GSuite content to a personal Google account or Office 365 

Migrating your Google Drive Files – You can use Google’s Takeout tool to export all your Google Drive files.  Using this tool, you can save the files as MS Office document file types (Word, Excel, PowerPoint). Steps on how to use Google Takeout can be found here https://takeout.google.com. 

Migrating your other Google content – You can use Google’s Takeout tool to export all your Google content, except for Music, Movies, TV Shows, etc. Migrating all your content will allow you to access the files within whatever application allows the files to be opened.
