Favorite Chrome App EVER!

Backstory: 4 years ago I left my district near Metro-Atlanta and started teaching closer to my home. I love the school and the community. It was definitely the best move ever for me and my family!

The only teeny tiny downside was that ALL of my files were on Dropbox which is completely and totally blocked at my new district. My new district is a Google Education county. I've loved using Google Drive but I haven't figured out how to move my files. So, instead, I've slowly moved some things over during the past few years usually emailing them to myself or putting on a jump drive... very tedious.

In order to find a solution to my problem, I did what anyone else in my position would do: turned to Google!

I was so, so happy to find that someone else out there has felt the need to create a way to transfer lots of files at one time. Enter:


Through my Chrome tools, I went to the Web Store and searched for the app, set it up in about 10 minutes, and voila! Everything has transferred. So stinking happy!!!



I seriously have tons of files that add up to a LOT of memory and it has transferred it all. You can link different accounts, have them sync one way or both, and even transfer or backup files. My main focus was simply to have my Drop Box files moved to my Google Drive. (Changing grade levels for next year.. but more on that later! Suffice it to say, I need those files NOW!) Cloud HG will also link Evernote, Gmail, Calendars, and Share Point. Plus if you are a business, it can handle all the memory usuage that you can throw at it. It's brilliant!!

This is definitely on the top of my favorite Chrome app list!!
