How to Export Google Drive to Another Account – Quick Solution

Google Drive gives you a free space of 15 GB, which contains Gmail data, as well as Google Photos. If you use a Google Account for a long time, it may contain a huge amount of data (Gmail, Photos, and Drive files). Sometimes users have multiple accounts, and if you lie in the same category and have another Google Account, that means you have an additional 15 GB of free storage space. But how can we export Google Drive to another account without uploading or downloading?

In Google Drive, we can easily export files using the share function. Yes, there are two methods of doing this. In the first method, you just need to share the files or folder with your other Google Drive account and then create a copy of it. In this method, there is no need to upload and download any files and it can be done easily with a few clicks. In the second method, we will use an automated solution option to export files from one Google Drive account to another using SysTools Google Drive Migrator.
