Is It Possible to Move Shared Links From Dropbox to Google Drive?
Individuals and teams can easily share files via Dropbox’s link-sharing feature, making it easy to edit the files together and collaborate with coworkers and external partners effectively without interrupting the workflow. In addition, the Dropbox mobile app allows you to share files wherever you are, right from your iPhone or Android.
But how do you move these shared links from Dropbox to Google Drive? The article discusses the migration of shared links from Dropbox to Google Drive and how you can do it easily.
Why Move Shared Links From Dropbox to Google Drive?
When you migrate from Dropbox to Google Drive with sharing links, these links’ URLs change in the destination cloud.
The users would have shared files with numerous people, and making a list with whom each file is shared and which permission level is given is quite complex. Besides, re-sharing files with the same permission level in the destination cloud after the migration aren’t feasible for businesses.
So, you should find an option to automatically migrate shared links from Dropbox to Google Drive along with the data.
The CloudFuze migration tool is one such platform that preserves the Dropbox files and folders shared links during migration. As an alternative to re-sharing the files after migration, we will apply permissions that allow people with whom you shared the content to access it.
