Migrating Google Email & Files

How do I migrate my emails and files from from AU Gmail account to my personal Gmail account?

Migrating Google Email & Files

  • Before starting this process you need to have a personal Gmail account created.
  • Depending on the amount of data you are transferring, you may need to purchase additional storage on your personal Gmail account.
  •  If you have documents that are in the “Shared with me” Folder that you want to be transferred, you need to add those files to "My Drive" first, before beginning the transfer process.
  1. Login to your AU email and click on the box with your initial/picture on the top right & click on  “Manage your Google Account”
  2. Click “Start Transfer”
  3. Enter personal Gmail account address then click “Send Code”
  4. Look in personal gmail account for an Email with the subject “Google - Verify your Account” to get the code. In the email, select Get confirmation code. A new tab will open with a code.
  5. Return to AU Email and Enter Code received from personal email. Then click Verify.
  1. Select the Content you would like to be transferred over to your personal Gmail Account. Click Start Transfer.

NOTE: Transfer can take from around a couple hours to a week depending on the size of your transfer. You will receive a confirmation email to both accounts once the transfer has been completed.
