pCloud to Google Workspace


Cloud storage services are a blessing for businesses. They help businesses save IT costs and improve efficiency. Businesses are able to adjust their cloud resources according to their requirements. Cloud services are cheaper than setting up your own server infrastructures, keeping them up, and hiring qualified people.


Moreover, the cloud offers enhanced security. Reliable cloud storage platforms encrypt your data during transit, and at rest. You can also password-protect your files and folders while sharing them with your coworkers. You can control who can access your confidential information.



Why Do Some Businesses Migrate from pCloud to Google Workspace?

How to Move Files from pCloud to Google Workspace?

Method 1: Using Easy Cloud Manager (Web App)

ECM is a Web-based tool. It’s available for free with a limited bandwidth quota every month. If you have lots of data to transfer, you can purchase a Pro plan.


Step 1: Create an Account


  1. Visit the Easy Cloud Manager website, and use the “Register your account” option to create a new account.
  2. Fill up the required details (your first, last name and email address)
  3. Click on Proceed.
  4. You’ll receive a verification link on your registered email address.
  5. Click on the verification link to instantly verify your account.


Step 2: Add Your Cloud Accounts


  1. Sign in to Easy Cloud Manager.
  2. Click on the Home tab.
  3. Click on the pCloud icon in the Add Cloud Drives tab.
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions.
  5. Click on the Google Workspace icon in the Add Cloud Drives tab.
  6. Follow the on-screen instructions.


Step 3: Choose Source & Destination


  1. Click on the Operations tab.
  2. Click on Select Source.
  3. A new Load Drive dialog will appear.
  4. Select the existing pCloud account you added.

Step 4: Create Schedule

  3. Specify the date and time, or appropriate days.
  4. Click on Schedule Task.


Alternatively, click on the Transfer Now button to immediately move your files.



Method 2: Manually Move Your Files

The manual method is recommended if you have fewer files to transfer. If you have lots of files or large-sized files, it will take a lot of time. If you need to transfer files on a repeated basis, we don’t recommend the manual method.


  1. Sign in to your pCloud and Google Workspace accounts in separate tabs.
  2. Go to the folder in your pCloud account that contains your files.
  3. Select the files you want to download.
  4. Click on the Download icon.
  5. pCloud will create a downloadable archive of your files.
  6. Once the download is finished, extract the archive’s content using 7-Zip File Manager (free).
  7. In your Google Workspace account, click on the Upload icon.
  8. Select your extracted files.
