  • Create a Google account (if you do not already have one) If you have one skip this step
  • Prepare your files- Be sure all files you want to copy are in your My Drive. (Add any files that have been shared with you to your drive.

  1. Enter the email address of the Google Account where you want to copy your content.
  2. Select Get code.
  3. On your Google Account (personal account), check your Gmail inbox for a confirmation email from Google. In the email, select Get confirmation code. A new tab will open with a code.

  5. Choose the content you'd like to copy, then select Start transfer.
Details about the copy process
The copy process usually happens within a few hours, but it can take up to a week. Copied files might appear in batches on your Google Account during the copy process. When your files are finished copying, you'll get an email at your Gmail address.
