There are a couple of ways to migrate your G Suite content. Please note that Google Forms will not be converted to Microsoft Forms. You’ll have to create new forms. Google Classroom structure, assignment text, and announcements will not be converted.  However, files linked from or attached to assignments and announcements will be converted if they currently reside on your G Suite Drive.

Dropbox tutorials are available at Dropbox Training Resources.
OneDrive tutorials are available at “What is OneDrive?

  • Direct Download 

    1. From a list in your G Suite Drive, right-click on the folder or file you want to migrate.

    2. Click on Download. A zip file will download to your computer. Google Docs, Sheets, and slides will automatically be converted to Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files.

    3. Unzip the files before you upload them to Dropbox or OneDrive. Otherwise, you’ll see the folders and their contents but you will not be able to open the files.

    4. Upload the contents to your CUNY Dropbox account or your CUNY OneDrive account (Look for the OneDrive icon in the left side menu).

  • Google Takeout

    1. Log in to your CUNY Dropbox account before starting this process
    2. Go to https://takeout.google.com/ to start the backup process.
    3. Select only the data you wish to back up. It will speed up the process and the final archive file will be smaller. Takeout will only back up the content that you own, so make sure that you are the owner of all the files you’ve selected.
    4. Once you’ve selected the data you want to back up, choose zip under the type of archive file you want to save it as.
    5. Choose from one of the following options to save to:

    Your CUNY Dropbox account
    Your CUNY OneDrive account (Look for the OneDrive icon in the left side menu.)
    • Your computer (you will receive an email with a link to the downloadable zip file).
