I am hoping that there is an easy way to migrate Google Drive files to Microsoft Teams. I have 1K Google Doc & Google Sheet files that need to be moved. I have talked to my support team and the additional cloud storage options have been turned off for security reasons. Is there another option for handling this? I am a newbie to Teams so any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!

Thanks Adam. Can you provide one recommendation? I would like to see what you might suggest I found something called Cloudiway. Is this the type of tool you are thinking of?

Hi Carlos and all,
I appreciate your input. As I mentioned I am a newbie and I tried to find the tool and it took me down a rabbit hole. I also couldn't find a tool in the Teams Apps. Can you please tell me exactly the name of the App that I need to install or look for to sync my Google Drive with my OneDrive that will allow me to drag and drop to Teams? Right now my Onedrive is perfectly sync'd to Teams. It is just the Google Drive I need help with. There are 2 things I need to sync to Teams. 1) A shared Google Drive and 2) my personal Google Drive. Thanks again.

Thanks Adam. I ended up making an archive of my google drive and putting that onto my OneDrive. I am still trying to figure out how to get the files from my OneDrive to the Teams drive since there isn't a move option available on OneDrive for some reason.

@adam deltinger That article is from 2017 and the sync world has changed considerably since then in the Google ecosphere.
The desktop app for syncing Google Drive content (from G Suite / enterprise, which is what I assume is at hand here) is Drive File Stream (not "Google Drive").
The biggest problem in this scenario is that when you "sync" Google Docs/Sheets/Slides "files" to your desktop it doesn't create a file that's portable (in the way syncing a PDF or .docx file does) - because those are "cloud documents" in the Google service.
You need a third party tool that can talk to Google and then pull all the traditional files out and into Office 365 - but also that does a conversion from the Google format to Office format. (sorry, but I am not specifically aware of any platforms that do this, because I haven't had a need to move files in that direction).
