Automation To Transfer All Files From Dropbox to Google Drive
Businesses that need to migrate a lot of data from Dropbox to Google Drive must use automation in several areas to lower their IT team’s workload. With automation, businesses and their IT teams can lower human errors and ensure complete migration accuracy.
This post lists several areas where automation plays an integral role in offering various benefits, such as efficiency, accuracy, and redundancy elimination.
1. File Type Conversion
It is likely that your company has a lot of Dropbox Paper and Word document files that need to be migrated to Google Drive and Google Shared Drives. Since Google does not support the original format of these types of files, it is a must to convert them to supported formats, such as. DOCX.
And it is only by having an automated process to convert the file formats that it becomes easy to ensure quick migration of TBs and PBs of Microsoft Word documents and Dropbox Paper files to Google Drive. Therefore, it is crucial to use a migration tool, such as CloudFuze, that ensures the conversion of these files into supported types through automation that does not require manual intervention.
2. Folder Level Limitation Resolution
One of the most challenging limitations that businesses face when migrating data from Dropbox to Google Workspace is that Shared Drives allow only 20 levels of sub-folders under the root folder. This limitation makes it challenging to migrate more than 20 nested folders from Dropbox to Google Shared Drives.
Since overcoming this limitation with a manual process is out of scope, businesses and their IT teams must rely on automated processes that bypass this roadblock.
CloudFuze helps businesses overcome this limitation with an automated process. It involves automatically creating a link in the 20th folder, which serves as a gateway to the succeeding folders.
3. Remigrating Conflicted Files and Folders
Files and folders that go into conflict during Dropbox to Google Drive data migration raise the risk of migration project failure or significantly lower the accuracy margin. And since remigrating conflicted files and folders with a manual process takes a lot of time and resources, the best step for companies and their IT teams is to use an automated remigration process.
With CloudFuze’s automatic re-try mechanism, it becomes easy to remigrate conflicted files and folders without the manual intervention of the IT team.
4. Migration Reporting Automation
It is only through proper reporting that it becomes easy for IT teams to keep proper track of the migration progress and measure the project’s success. However, sharing every migration report with each stakeholder can become cumbersome and time-consuming.
To save time and offload the IT workload, businesses can rely on migration reporting automation functionalities. For example, CloudFuze provides the option to add email IDs of members who are to be regularly notified of the migration progress.
5. Email Notification Suppression
As part of ensuring a seamless transition from Dropbox to Google Drive, companies and their IT teams must ensure that end-users do not get bombarded with emails when their sharing permissions get updated in Google Drive during the migration progress.
CloudFuze’s Dropbox to Google Drive migration tool makes it easy to suppress email notifications for a high volume of user accounts which, otherwise, can be a laborious task if done manually.
