Move Inner File Permissions From Dropbox to Google Drive
Permissions allow you to determine who can read, modify, and access files. Dropbox lets you share files and folders with users within or outside the organization, giving them viewer or editor access.
On the other hand, Google Drive offers similar permission levels to share and collaborate on files with others, as shown in the image below.
This article has covered all the details you should know to preserve inner file permissions when migrating from Dropbox to Google Drive.
Importance of Inner File Permissions Migration
Inner file permissions are nothing but the permissions given to the files that are stored in a folder or subfolders. Not just the folder permissions, but businesses need to retain the permissions of inner files as well when moving from Dropbox to Google Drive. It helps users collaborate with team members and clients (or anyone outside the organization) in Google Drive in the same way as they do in Dropbox.
