Transfer your files from Umail Drive to Google at IU Drive

Note:
You will be able to transfer files from Umail Drive to Google at IU Drive until the beginning of fall semester 2018.
Important:
You can only use Google Takeout if you have a Gmail at IU account, or if you are a former student who separated from IU prior to March 11, 2018.

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

  1. Visit umail.iu.edu and, under "Transfer your files to Google at IU", click Log in to Google Takeout. Then sign in using your IU username and passphrase. 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. Then, click Send Code.
  3. A verification message will be emailed to you. If you are transferring your Drive content before your email account has been upgraded, check your Umail account for the message. If you are transferring your Drive content after your email account has been upgraded, check your Gmail at IU account for the message. In the message, click Get confirmation code to see a code you'll need to enter to continue.
  4. In the browser used in step 1, enter the confirmation code. Then, click VERIFY.
  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. The transferred content will be placed inside a folder, named username@umail.u.edu 2018-xx-xx XX:XX, within your Google at IU Drive.
    Note:
    Umail Drive content whose share settings have been restricted by the content's owner will not be transferred to Google at IU Drive.
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.
