  1. Cannot cancel migration

    I tried to migrate my drive, and now I get an email every day saying that the migration failed along with a long list of errors. How can I cancel this?!

      I don't seem to find the code. It would be great to be able to audit the code, fork and send pull requests with possible upgrades.

      • Figure out how to stop it from running!!!

        I removed this from Chrome months ago. Every night it still runs. No one will answer how to stop it.
        How does it even have access to keep running?!

          • Figure out how to transfer ownership of a form created in the personal Gmail when it needed to be in my work account.

            It's too darn easy to start up a form in the wrong login. I did that the other day, and then really got into that stupid form. I really don't want to recreate it, but I don't want to have the responses going into my personal account, either. Sharing the form's edit capabilities is not enough.

              • Direct file transfer through team drives

                On many Google Apps domains, it is possible to create a team drive and share it with someone outside of your Google Apps domain. You can then move files from your drive to the shared team drive. From there you can log in to your other Google account and drag and drop the files from the team drive to your drive, effectively transferring ownership.

                The only problem is that while you can create folders and move folders out of a team drive, you cannot move a folder into a team drive.

                What I propose is a script that recreates the…

                  • document the whole process

                    It would be great to know what the app actually does (My Backup was a surprise but good). What does multiple copies of the same subfolder mean? How should we then safely delete the originals from the initial Drive account?

                      The documentation doesn't mention whether Google files are migrated as well.
