If you are migrating your business data from Google apps to Microsoft apps, we recommend that you also migrate your cloud storage options by transferring files from Google Drive to OneDrive. You may need to move to a new OneDrive account for personal use or transfer from a business account on Google Drive (Google Workspace) to a private account on OneDrive.

As you may know, Google Drive is highly integrated with all Google products and is popular among Chrome and Android users. On the other hand, OneDrive has seamlessly connected to Microsoft Office 365 suites and is preinstalled on Windows 11/10.

You can take out a few files from Google Drive to OneDrive by downloading and uploading, but if you need to take out your whole Google Drive to OneDrive, the first two methods may help you a lot.
