So I've been reading a lot of posts in the forum but couldn't quite find what I'm looking for. I hope you can help me with my fact-finding mission. Instead of creating multiple posts, I thought it might be good to put all my questions in one post so as to not pollute the forum.
I want to move a large collection of files from GDrive to SharedDrives. These are project folders that have hundreds of files/folders. Each project folder will have to be moved to an individual shared drive. I'm using Google Workspace accounts.
So the issues/questions I have are following
How to best count files from the source (Gdrive project folder) in order to be within SDrives limits of 400k files (is the limit related to the files or folders as well?). Ideally I would like to have a total count of the project folder that I can export to csv/txt. I read something about ls2 command but after testing this it doesn't seem to work (anymore).
When moving files in the UI from GDrive to SDrive you're not allowed to move folders unless admin enables this feature for you. Can Move command move folders?
Since files are already on GDrive I want to move them instead of copying them. In one of the posts I read that 750GB limit does not apply to move command, is that correct?
If move command is performed will the URL-change-behaviour be the same as it is when using Drive UI when moving files from GDrive to SDrive, i.e. folder URL's change, file URL's stay the same? And will move have any impact on file-sharing permissions, I'm guessing not but not sure.
Any tips on correct/good migration command? Like, should I use --drive-server-side-across-configs=true ?
My command will be pretty straightforward. Since I'm using a service account to store all that data I will be impersonating that account to perform all the actions. I'm using v1.52.3
rclone --drive-impersonate firstname.lastname@example.org move gdrive:projectx\ sdriveprojectx:\ --progress --create-empty-src-dirs --verbose --log-file logfileupload.log
Any feedback is much appreciated!
