UW-Madison Google Workspace - Move folders from My Drive to Shared drives

This document explains how to move folders that you own from My Drive to a Shared drive that you have Manager permissions to.
  1. Log into your UW-Madison Google Drive account.

  2. Locate the folder you want to transfer. 

  3. Drag the folder over to the left-hand menu, and while still dragging, hover over the Shared Drives tab until the drop-down menu expands. Then drop the folder into your desired Shared Drive.

  4. A “Reviewing Items” pop-up message will appear. You do not need to do anything while this message is being presented unless you would like to cancel the folder transfer.

  5. Another pop-up message will appear after the first, this time prompting you for confirmation of folder transfer. Click the Move button at the bottom right of this pop-up window to continue with the folder transfer.
