Join Jess Stratton for an in-depth discussion in this video Identifying how much storage space you will need, part of Migrating from Office 2013 to Google Apps.
- Google Drive gives you 15 gigabytes…of space to store on their server.…Remembering that Google Docs doesn't take up…any of that allotted space, the rest is yours to use…for things like photos and unconverted office files,…like spreadsheets and Word documents.…I'll show you how to convert your files later.…You can purchase additional storage space if you need it,…but for now let's focus on learning how to…know how much space you'll need.…I'll open up a File Explorer window.…
The easiest way is to right click on a folder…or folders that you wanna migrate to…Google Drive and select Properties.…You'll see a total amount of space in the Size section…in either megabytes or gigabytes…depending on how big the folder is.…For example, I've right-clicked on my Documents folder…and the size is four gigabytes, I'll click cancel on this.…I can do the same thing to other folders…such as Pictures, this one's fairly…small at 76 megabytes.…
Generally documents don't take up a lot of storage,…but photos and music files like MP3 files…

Q: Will this course help me migrate from Office 365 to Google apps?
A: It will if you use the desktop version of Office 365. If you use the Office 365 apps online through a web browser only, this course will be helpful in terms of general concepts, but there are enough differences between the desktop and online versions of Office that many specific instructions won't apply.
