The only way I found to do it is by writing a script on my own. It will time out, and then you will need to restart the script. I wrote it so that it won't be a problem to restart the script. Copy this into Google Apps script (script.google.com), doesn't matter on which account. Click on the source folder, click Share, and then advanced. Copy the link's key ...

I was in a similar situation where I had an account in regular my_name@gmail.com and bought an account in Google Apps to have a new account in the new domain.

In my experience, when I needed to move my Gmail, Drive, Contacts, and other apps data, I ended up using g-transfer. It was a way better option than Google Takeout (as you said, there are even more problems with Takeout now--and g-transfer seems to have gotten it right so far). The only problem is that if you have linked stuff to your Google Play store or ...

Depends... The migration panel is built to retrieve all emails from inboxes on other platforms, you don't state if your source is outside Google Apps and I haven't heard from someone using the tool inside Google itself, so I can't be sure of the answer if that is your case. Nevertheless, that tool works making a POP or IMAP connection to any common email ...

It copies the mail. You can stop and resume the process, and migrate again to recover any mail received while the process was active; it won't duplicate existing mail. You can also set the starting date from which the mail will be migrated.

Was your original Google account created with a gmail address (eg youngster@gmail.coem)? If so, then I don't believe that there is one solution for this. Instead, you need to transfer ownership of the artifacts created by each individual service to the new account. This is more than just taking a copy of the data and making it available to the 2nd ...

IMAP Tools Light for Python3 Users attempting to move/copy/migrate IMAP email accounts might find my python script useful. It is open source and I tried to make it easy to use - also for people who don't use commandline tools very often, as the tools commonly available require quite a bit of configuration and tweaking. Example of simple 1-line command to ...

I once uploaded a 10GB .pst to gmail using Google's migration tool... https://tools.google.com/dlpage/outlookmigration

I was able to successfully migrate the data using a commercial product called Transend. What I learned during the process is that Google throttles this type of transfer and for a large upload, one will eventually stop being able to remain connected to Gmail. It will simply timeout and disconnect. The trick here is to do this in batches... do a bunch of ...

The closest you can get to achieving such a result is by following these steps: Go to https://account.live.com and sign in using the account user@oldDomain.com. On the left menu, click on Overview > Account aliases. Once there, and assuming you see both user@oldDomain.com and user@newDomain.com, you can do make user@newDomain.com the primary alias and ...

Here's a tip about filters in Gmail. I'm migrating Gmail -> Apps using POP and found it pretty inconvenient when all (auto-)labels were gone. As many Gmail users do, I use filters which automatically labels incoming email. Now: Google Labs to the rescue! I enabled this on both my accounts: "Filter import/export by Luke B, Slava C, and the Data Liberation ...
