OneDrive for Business is your personal drive that is accessible from anywhere --at the office, across the country, or from a mobile device.  Move your files today to take advantage of 2 TB of online storage, then sync the files you want to your computer, so you can access them even when not connected to the Internet.

 

Dropbox and Google Drive to OneDrive

 Overview

  1. To get started pick the service you are using below to learn how to download all your files

  2. Copy your files to OneDrive

  3. Delete your file from your old cloud storage

 

Dropbox

Download files from Dropbox

You can download the contents of an entire Dropbox folder via dropbox.com, as long as both of the following are true:

  • The folder is less than 20 GB in total size

  • The folder has fewer than 10,000 total files

To download an entire folder directly from dropbox.com:

  1. Sign in to dropbox.com.

  2. Find the folder you want to download.

  3. Click the … (ellipsis) icon to the right of the folder's name.

  4. Click Download.

Your browser will then download the folder as a single compressed file (known as a "ZIP" file). Once it's downloaded, open and decompress the ZIP file to access the contents of your folder.

Notes:

  • You'll find the file wherever your browser normally downloads files, as set in your browser preferences

  • The ZIP file will have the same name as the original folder, but will end in .zip

What if I see an "Open" button instead of a "Download" button?

If you see an Open button instead of a Download button, it means the folder is already synced with the Dropbox folder on your computer. Click the Open button to access this folder on your computer.

 

Google Drive 

Download files from Google Drive

To download the contents of an entire Google Drive:

  1. Sign in to drive.google.com.

  2. Select the folders and files you want to download.

  3. Right click your selection or click the ellipse, then click download.

Your browser will then download the folder as a single compressed file (known as a "ZIP" file). Once it's downloaded, open and decompress the ZIP file to access the contents of your folder.

Notes:

  • You'll find the file wherever your browser normally downloads files, as set in your browser preferences

  • The ZIP file will have the same name as the original folder, but will end in .zip
