Moving data between Google and G Suite

If you already have a Google account and you want to move the content to your G Suite account (or the other way around), follow these instructions.

Moving data from a Google account to G Suite

  1. Create a folder in your private Google account and move the documents you want to move to G Suite to this folder.
  2. Download the folder to your computer.
  3. Follow this guide to learn how to upload your data to Google Drive.

Move data from UiO's G Suite to a different Google account

When you quit UiO you no longer have access to your UiO G Suite account. Before your last day, make sure that all data in the G Suite account that you want to bring with you, is transfered to your private Google account. Follow this guide to learn how to transfer your data.

Changing the ownership of your files

When your role at UiO changes, or you are leaving, it may be necessary for others to access your files. Learn how to change ownership by following Google's guide here.

Moving big amounts of data

If you want to move big amounts of data we recommend that you first consider if it is worth doing or not. UiO's admin of G Suite does not offer support in moving big amounts of data through Google's API tool.
