G Drive to O365 Onedrive: Server to Server Drive Migration: Systools Application
In, almost every case of G suite to O365 Mailing solution transfer, client is asking for G drive into O365 Onedrive server to server migration. Through Systool application process can be handled easily. In this article, we will discuss the process of drive migration.
There is no drive migrator integrated with O365 admin so as to handle the process from the admin console itself. Hence manual download of files from G drive and upload to one drive is the suggested way. It takes a long time to download the files and upload in One drive and also due to the manual process internet bandwidth also gets affected.
Hence as an alternate solution, we found a third-party application called Systool Migrator for G Drive to One Drive. You can go to the below link for Systool:
Once downloaded, install the Systool Migrator.
After Installation, make sure to run the application with Administrator privilege.
On the initial screen, you will get two options. Keep the source as G suite and destination as Office 365.
Click on next from the downright corner.
In the next screen, you have to put the admin id for the G Suite domain.
You will see there is a link below the admin ID, where the authentication scopes are mentioned.
Step: 6 scopes need to add in the G Suite Admin console under security-> Advanced setting-> Manage API.
But you will need a client ID to complete the authentication.
