Transfer from OneDrive (SkyDrive) to Google Drive

So you would like to move your files from a OneDrive account to Google Drive? Follow this simple guide.


Step 1. Choose 'Select Source' on the Transfer Wizard. 




Step 2.
 Click +New.

If you have previously setup and authorized a OneDrive connector, please choose it from the list of your connectors, click 'Use Connector' and skip to Step 6.








Step 3. A list of our supported connectors will pop up. From there, select the 'OneDrive' icon and choose 'Next'.




Step 4.
 After choosing OneDrive as either the source or destination connector, you will have to name it. 



Step 5a. You will then have to log in and authorize Mover to access your OneDrive account. 



Step 5b. You will now be able to see your OneDrive files on the transfer wizard. 




Step 6. Next you will want to set up your destination connector. You can do this by choosing 'Select Destination' on the transfer wizard. 







Step 7. You will now want to set up a new connector using your chosen destination. 


If you have previously setup and authorized a Google Drive connector, please choose it from the list of your connectors and skip to Step 9b.








Step 8. After choosing Google Drive as the destination connector, you will have to name it.






Step 9a. You will then have to log in and authorize Mover to access your Google Drive account. 






Step 9b: Once accepted, the Google Drive login page will close and the transfer wizard will show the connection on the right side indicating that Google Drive is now your chosen destination.





Step 10a: Now that both connectors have been successfully set up, you may select the source and destination folders. You can select a destination folder or create a new one by clicking the “Create a New Folder” icon.


Then you may start the transfer immediately or schedule it for later.








Step 10b: If you choose to schedule it, fill out the options provided to you and save the schedule. This is a recursive backup and will repeat the process automatically during the set schedule. With our incremental flag you also have the option to copy only the files that changed.








Step 10c: However, this tutorial is illustrating an immediate transfer. Choose "Transfer Now" and you should get a confirmation window displaying both the source and destination directory. Click “Run this transfer now”.








Step 11: Once the transfer has been initialized, the Transfer Log will show the status of the file transfer. Click on the refresh icon to update the status. 
You have successfully transferred your files from OneDrive into your Google Drive cloud service. Enjoy!


Well, that’s about it. The tutorial might look long but you can get through the steps in less than five minutes.
