What Features To Check in a Box To Google Drive Migration Tool?

Moving data from Box to Google Drive can be complex and time-consuming. However, with the help of migration tools, the process can be simplified and streamlined. But not all the tools offer the same features and selecting one that doesn’t align with your objectives can result in a stressful and inefficient migration process.

In this post, we will discuss the essential features to look for in a Box to Google Drive migration tool. By understanding these key features, you can make an informed decision and select a tool that meets your unique needs.

Large Data Volume

When choosing a Box to Google Drive migration tool, make sure that it can handle large data volumes. The tool should be able to scale up or down based on your specific requirements. This is especially important if you have a high volume of data to migrate, as you may need to adjust the tool’s performance to optimize transfer speeds.

While migrating huge data volumes, the company’s internal IT team must ensure that the Box to Google Drive migration tool must be able to handle server allocation, bandwidth management, and API throttling risk management for a smooth data transfer.

File Features

When your business plans to move Box data to Google Drive, it is not simply a direct data dump, but it also involves the migration of the associated file features.

The Box to Google Drive migration tool you plan to choose must be capable of migrating file features like version history, timestamp, comments, etc.

These capabilities of the migration tool ensures 100% replication of data from the source cloud to the destination cloud.


The Box to Google Drive migration tool must be able to automatically convert the file/folder permissions in Box to corresponding permissions in Google Drive.

Delta Migration

For business migration projects that involve moving a significant number of users and a vast amount of data, delta migration is crucial. When your company plans to transfer Box data to Google Drive, ensure that the data migration tool is capable of performing a delta migration.

By doing so, you can be confident that all the incremental changes accumulated in the source cloud will be accurately transferred to the destination cloud, ensuring a seamless and successful migration process.

Box Notes Migration

With Box as the current cloud storage, it is probable that your teams have numerous active Box Notes files shared among team members. However, migrating Box Notes to Google Drive can be challenging since Box Notes do not technically exist in Google Drive.

So, for a seamless Box to Google Drive data transfer, the key is to choose a migration tool that helps solve this issue.

CloudFuze is an advanced data migration tool that can successfully migrate Box Notes to Google Drive by converting Box Notes (.boxnote) to Word documents in Google Drive.

Links Migration

The success of business collaboration and productivity largely depends on the accessibility of links that provide quick access to files and folders. However, during the migration of files and folders from one cloud platform to another, such as migrating from Box to Google Drive, links between files may break due to changes in file addresses. To avoid disruptions to the workflow, businesses must prioritize preserving link accessibility by using the right migration tools and having a robust migration strategy.

CloudFuze is a leading Box to Google Drive migration tool that offers an effective solution – LinkEx that migrates links unaltered from the source to the destination cloud during data migration, ensuring zero broken links. Additionally, for businesses that have already faced the issue of broken links with another migration service provider, LinkEx acts as a remediation tool to identify and repair only the broken links without the need to re-migrate entire files and folders.
