Step 6: Start the Migration
Click on “Migrate” button on the left navigation menu and you will be redirected to the migration page shown in the above screen shot. Select Dropbox as the source and Google Drive as the destination.
Source and destination accounts need to be selected accurately. If you choose the clouds wrongly, Google Drive’s data will be migrated to Dropbox.
Step 7: Select Files and Folders to Be Migrated
Upon clicking “Migrate”, a page appears displaying all the files and folders in the source and destination accounts.
You can migrate a single file/folder, multiple files/folders, or even entire root data. Just select what you need to migrate and click on the “Migrate” button.

All the steps are completed, and migration has been started.
