Transfer Files Ownership

Now with Google Drive™ cross-domain file transfer: 
you are free in your movements. 

See our Privacy Policy.

Transfer or copy your Google Drive™ files recursively between accounts in different Google Workspace™ domains and/or free accounts, migrate files to another Google My Drive™ or Shared Drive™, also create file lists, copy folder structures without files or with shortcuts to files. Transferred files retain ID, metadata and version history after migration. If any target subfolder does not exist, it is created with a new ID. If the source folder is also the target folder, then the transfer of ownership occurs in-place.

Only the owner can initiate a transfer of ownership. If the selected files belong to several owners, then check the "Skip files owned by other users" checkbox to avoid errors when trying to process other user's files. The FAQ describes the recommended approach for other files not owned by you.

Processing large volumes (more than 5,000 files) can take hours due to performance degradation by your storage provider and recover some time after the operation completes. The copy operation may take even longer than the transfer.

Please note:

Even these users can benefit from the free features

- creating a list of files and folders,

- creating a hierarchical folder structure without files,

- creating a hierarchical folder structure with shortcuts to original files.


A subscription with credits by the number of files is required to transfer or copy. Check this add-on subscription for this webapp in Credits in the upper right corner of the application window:

To perform a copy or transfer operation, the sender or recipient of the files must have a valid subscription with the required number of credits equal to the number of files.
