2. Challenges Involved in Egnyte to Google Shared Drive Migration

Many companies are looking to migrate from Egnyte to Google Drive and Google Shared Drives to avail the benefits it offers.

But they differ in their data structure, file types it supports, and how you work on files collaboratively.

When migrating the data from Egnyte to Google Shared Drive, IT Admins must note that you just not migrate folders and files, but all the permissions, versions, comments, and timestamps associated with it which is vital for your business to maintain. Moreover, Google Shared Drive has certain limitations that limit your data migration from Egnyte.

  • Only accepts 750 GB of data per user per day
  • Supports up to 20 levels of nested folders and beyond that can’t be migrated
  • Permission levels are completely different compared to Egnyte

All the things together create challenges for IT Admins to transfer files from Egnyte to Google Shared Drive.
