Transfer your files from Umail Drive to Google at IU Drive

Note:

You can transfer your files in Umail Drive to Google at IU Drive now, in preparation for the Umail upgrade.

Important:
If you haven't yet logged into Google at IU and agreed to Google's Terms of Service, you must do so before March 11, 2018. You'll be prompted to agree immediately after login. Your mail cannot be moved if you haven't completed this action.

To transfer files you've stored in Umail Drive to Google at IU Drive:

  1. Visit https://takeout.google.com/transfer. Sign in using username@umail.iu.edu (replacing "username" with your own username). If you're logged into multiple Google accounts, you may need to switch to your Umail account before moving forward.
  2. When you're prompted for a transfer email address, enter yours in the form of username@iu.edu.
  3. A verification message will be sent to your Gmail at IU account. In the message, click Get confirmation code to see a code you'll need to enter to continue. Next, check your Gmail at IU account in a different web browser so you do not have to change sign-in information.
  4. In the first browser, where you signed in using username@umail.iu.edu, enter the confirmation code.
  5. Verify that Drive is the only product turned on.

  6. To begin the process, click Start Transfer.
  7. You should receive confirmation both in the browser and in email that the process has begun. You'll also receive mail when it's complete.
Notes:
  • The transfer doesn't copy empty folders.
  • The transfer will create a new folder at the root of your Drive, named in the format username@umail.iu.edu YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM.
  • To see the transfer history, go to https://takeout.google.com/transfer/history.
  • After you've entered the confirmation code, you can repeat the process as many times as you wish.
