Transferring Your Photos To Google Drive

Uploading images only takes seconds.  It’s moving them across different platforms that can take hours of precious time.

This is why a growing number of companies now offer image migration services.  The best vendors not only make it quick and easy to transfer photos from any cloud service provider like Google Drive, but they allow you to create a migration schedule so that all of your valuable photos are routinely stored and saved with your favorite cloud provider.

Step 3: Choose What You Want To Transfer

Once logged into where your images are stored, you can choose the folder you want to transfer.  Depending on the images you have taken and how they have been saved, you will have the option of choosing a parent folder and sub-folders.  When the folder has been selected, click “Submit”.

Step 4: Select Where The Photos Are Going

Now you will be asked where you want the photos to go.  In this case, you can choose Google Drive as where the photos will be moved such as google drive to google photos, though you will see a number of alternative target systems as well.

Once selected, you will be prompted to enter in your login details for Google Drive.  You will then be able to see all of your Google Drive content and you can choose the path you want the content to be transferred to.  Click “Submit”

Step 6: Give The Plan A Name

You can give your migration plan a name so that you can keep track of which plan is going to where.  Include which folders you are migrating in the description.

Step 7: “Let’s Go!”

Click on the “Let’s Go” button and you can then initiate the migration.  You’ll then receive an email notification when the migration has started and when it has finished.

To change any plan settings you have created, you can click on the “Edit” button.  Users also have the ability to migrate at a later time through Cloudsfer.  Simply click on the “Schedule” button rather than “Let’s Go” and you can then choose the date and the time for the migration to start.
