Moving Files and Folders from Individual Storage to Shared Storage

Summary

Procedures for transferring files and folders from individual storage to shared storage using Box and Google.

Body

Moving files or folders to shared storage within Box or Google Drive is especially useful if you're moving to another department or leaving the University and want to transfer ownership to other colleagues. Shared storage files belong to a "team" instead of an individual so remaining team members can continue to collaborate and share information.
