How to Migrate Box Notes to Google Drive
Box Notes, natively integrated with Box, is an easy-to-use document creation tool. Without leaving Box, Box Notes allows you to quickly take notes, communicate in real-time with your team, and share ideas.
As a Box user, you would have created Box Notes to save business information and shared various Box Notes to collaborate with your team members. Is your business planning to move from Box to Google Drive? Then migrating Box Notes is equally important as migrating other Box files, such as Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.
How to Migrate Box Notes to Google Drive?
The issue with migrating Box Notes is that they technically don’t exist in Google Drive. Therefore, moving a Box Note to Google Drive can be challenging, expensive, and possibly lead to data loss.
CloudFuze, an advanced data migration tool, successfully migrates Box Notes to Google Drive. Besides, CloudFuze also automatically migrates permissions, versions, comments, timestamps, external links, and embedded links of Box notes.
But before you start your migration, it is important to check how your Box Notes will be migrated to Google Drive.
To Which Format the Box Files Will be Migrated?
When moving files from Box to Google Drive, CloudFuze migrates Box Notes (.boxnote) to Word document in Google Drive. You can transfer all file types in Box to Google My Drive and Shared Drives using CloudFuze.
After completing your Box to Google Drive migration project, you can access your files in the following format.
|Box File Format ||Google Drive File Format (After Migration) |
|.boxnote ||.docx |
|.docx ||.docx |
|.xlsx ||.xlsx |
