We currently use a file server to share all of our data. Data on it conforms to a very rigid structure, which we absolutely must retain during migration. For instance folder depth is rather high and many files and folders are linked to various other places. Since we all use Macs, these links are in the form of “Alias”- (or the newer “Bookmark”-)format files.
When performing a test upload to Drive, we noticed that Google Drive ignores our carefully crafted Alias structure. It seems like they are just binary files to Google Drive. Obviously, the links are now broken and can only be downloaded as equally broken text files. We cannot work like this.
So the question is: How do I replace our file server with Google Drive as management requested without destroying dozens of workflows?
