Google Drive is one of the most popular cloud storage services in the world, allowing you to easily store and access various types of data such as files, folders, images, audio, and video. You can also share files with colleagues, clients, or friends and collaborate together. We often have multiple Google accounts for storing and managing our files, and transferring files from one Google account to another can be a bit tricky. Below, I will introduce two methods to quickly transfer data from one Google account to another.

Method 1: Use the "Share" feature to transfer data in Google Drive

  1. Open the browser and log in to the Google Drive account from which you want to migrate files.

  2. Select the file or folder you want to transfer. Right-click on the selected file or folder and select the "Share" option.

  3. In the pop-up window, enter the email address of the account to which you want to migrate the file and set the sharing permission to "Edit". Then click the "Send" button.

  4. Next, you need to log in to another Google Drive account that will receive the file in your browser.

  5. In the left menu, select the "Shared with me" tab.

  6. Find the previously shared file or folder, press Ctrl+A to select them all, and then right-click the "Move to" option to move them to your own Google Drive.

Tip: If you only want to copy the source file and not move it, it's best to make a copy first and then move the copy to your own Google Drive.

This method is simple to operate in the browser, and it does not require downloading data from one Google account to the local computer and then uploading it to another Google account. However, if you want to synchronize data in one Google Drive account to another account for a long time, it will not be suitable. Next, I will introduce how to easily manage multiple accounts in one application and synchronize data from multiple Google Drive accounts at regular intervals.

Method 2: Migrate Google Drive data to Another Account using RiceDrive (the fastest way)

  6. Create a Google transfer task to transfer or sync data from one Google Drive to another. Go to the "Transfer & Download" page and click the "New task" button to enter the task creation process.

  7. On the task creation page, select the files or folders you want to transfer in the source, choose the Google Drive where you want to store the data in the target, and then click the "start up" button to start the task.
