Migrating Google Drive files to Office 365.


I've been given a project for migrating around 200 users from the Google Apps to Office 365.
I have found a solution for migrating the emails, calendar, contacts etc... using CodeTwo's Office 365 Migration.

However this only migrates users email related data.
I would also love something to migrate users Google Drive data straight to Microsoft SkyDrive.
All the tools I've seen are done on an individual user basis and don't seem possible to migrate users in bulk.

Otherwise it would mean that users would have to manually download there Google Drive documents locally and then upload them to SkyDrive. A bit laborious.

Any suggestions would be gratefully received.

Hmmmm, I've just come across this possible solution:


Has anybody had any experience with it?
It seems to get good reviews.

Cloud HQ is free for one month. I think it may be in the interest of your users to this by themselves, since they most often have several devices? It only reuires them to setup a sync on their website - so no labrous up/download. After everything is done, delete the cloudHQ sync.

The Cloud Migrator tool from Cloud Technology looks like its a tool for migrating to Google Apps rather that away from them. But thanks for the suggestion.

I think we will be looking to migrate the email and Google Drive side separately as there doesn't appear to be an all in tool that will do it.
And we can't really rely on the users to migrate the data themselves tbh.
Currently looking at the CodeTwo solution for the email side and mover.io for the Google Drive part.
Still in the early stages of the project so looking to get as much information and solutions as possible.

I've just had contact with mover.io and have been quoted $60 per user to migrate from Google Drive to SkyDrive Pro (part of Office 365).
Now for 134 users that equates to over £5k.
I know for a fact that this will not get signed off based on that figure. Migrating Google Drive documents wasn't even considered until I mentioned it after the decision was made to move to Office 365.

So again not sure what to do a this stage.

Mover.io are currently developing a 'DIY' enterprise solution so looking at the possibility of using this. Having demo's of it etc...

No other enterprise solutions seems to exist on the market currently.
