To migrate Box Business / Enterprise accounts to Google Workspace you need to create one-way migration sync pairs like this:
Box (firstname.lastname@example.org) -> Google Drive (email@example.com) Box (firstname.lastname@example.org) -> Google Drive (email@example.com) ...
The above will create a one-way sync of each Box account with a corresponding Google Drive account. The data will be migrated, and it will also be kept in sync— allowing you seamless transition.
cloudHQ will also replicate all sharing information and permissions from Box to Google Drive.
Here are step-by-step instructions for how to set up data migration sync pairs.
