When you got them all selected,…click open, and your files will upload.…You can see the progress on the bottom right hand side.…Your files will appear in Google Drive immediately…when they're done, and this will depend on the size…of the files that you're uploading,…and the speed of your internet connection.…You can upload files up to five terabytes,…which doesn't matter unless you purchase…that much storage space anyway.…There's some other space rules.…You can see here by these icons…that these are Microsoft Word documents.…

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.
