Import files and folders from Google Drive

To import files and folders from Google Drive, drag and drop your item from your My Drive or Shared with me to the target folder in your Team Folder.

When files are imported to the Team Folder:

  • the ownership is transferred to the storage account of the Team Folder
  • the files are automatically shared with all the users who have access to the Team Folder
  • all previous permissions on the files are kept if the Team Folder is configured with flexible permissions
