Anyone got a clever idea how I get a takeout file from an old domain to google drive without having to store it on my computer interim - aint nobody got space for that 😂
Takeout bucket looks like it is in GCP
Do you have the GCP url? Maybe try rclone or try using a VM to download to?
I do 🤔 might be worth a shot, seems highly unreasonable that I have to download this “the good old way”
gsutil cp -r worked fine
gsutil cp -r
(Will also figure out a step to actually move it to Drive but not sure I need to now that I managed to move it to our GCP instance) - will update thread as I go along
Some extra notes:
1. Create a new storage container on destination end2. Give user from source end an appropriate amount of storage.objects permissions at destination (I went with Storage Legacy Object Owner) 🤷 3. Start transfer from source GCP ShellReasoning for this little loop is that only Super Admins at “Source Domain” will have access to the bucket received by Google and you will not have permissions to change or add additional accounts on that one
rclone can source from gs:// and upload to Drive
you can also…. store the takeout to drive, create a shared drive in the destination, give old domain account manager access, move file to shared drive from old domain.
👏 don’t 👏 overthink 👏 it👏
@rose wait - can I ? I just got a link to a gcp resource from google ? 🥺
but i also like the gsutil solution 😜
It did the job and also came with the added benefit of having long term storage that certainly never will be asked for again but for legal reasons must exist 💁😂
Yeah. And you can put in legal holds / auto deletions on these files too
In terms of purely straightforward access, I prefer the shared drive method 😅 I’m sure there are benefits to GCP storage but I always prefer the more straightforward approach.
Apparently Robert and I looked at this, saw a cloud storage bucket and thought gsutil 🙈
@rose im still confused though, like i get a zip file stored on a gcp bucket 🤔 how would i move it to google drive directly without touching my computer
when you request the takeout, you choose to send it directly to Drive?
Oh this was a full domain takeout - it did not have that option
