Q: How long does a Gmail to GSuite Email Migration Take?
A: A very very long time. 5+ GB can take over a week
Just moving 2.45GB of my email out of a free Google Apps account with a custom domain to a new G Suite account and 5.56GB of email from my wifes account. The Google Apps accounts were the free ones that you could add a custom domain to.
It’s 8 in the morning and I started the migrations yesterday afternoon around 3PM so very roughly in 17 hours it has completed 29% of mine and 25% of my wifes migration.
That means that the performance is 40MB per hour for mine and 80MB per hour for my wifes mail box.
So it seems like a multi day process to migrate multi-gigabyte mail accounts from gmail to g suite.
So after 39 hours we are at the following stage 48% of 2.45GB and 55% of 5.56GB
What has suprised me is that the gmail to gsuite migration is done at “full speed” so you just have to wait it out.
Another example of a 5GB+ mail box has taken many days…. so if you have gigs of mail plan for a week or so
