Permissions Migration from Box to Google Drive is Now Easy!
Businesses planning to migrate from Box to Google Drive has many things to move along with the data, the most important of all include the permissions migration from Box to Google Drive.
But the fact is that each cloud storage stores permissions differently, complicating the process of accurately migrating permissions across platforms.
The article helps you understand the importance of migrating permissions from Box to Google Drive, along with the data and how it can be done easily.
Why Migrate Permissions from Box to Google Drive?
Box lets you decide who has access to your files and folders, what they can do with them, and how long they have access to them. This allows you to collaborate on files with team members or clients with real-time co-authoring.
So, to maintain the same collaboration among the users, businesses need to retain permissions during migration, i.e., while data is copied from the source cloud to the destination cloud. Transferring files from Box to Google Drive without accurately copying permissions will put businesses at risk.
Using a data migration tool like CloudFuze can help you save time and money while accurately preserving the access permissions when you migrate from Box to Google Drive.
