We have a couple of teachers leaving and I need to transfer quite a large number of folders to their new domain or personal gmail. Does Google Apps still not allow a direct transfer of files to a different domain? I can't seem to make this work.  I think I can delete the user and transfer files. Has anyone figured out a smart and efficient way to do this? Any advice would be hugely appreciated! Lavinia

    Google best practice recommends archiving old users, teachers and students, never simply deleting them... just move them to archived organisational units with restricted permissions. Users use Google Take out to extract their data which they can easily import into personal google accounts or any new domain.
