This service provides document migration from a File Server to OneDrive for Business. Please note, the destination must be OneDrive for Business, not the personal (consumer) version of OneDrive.

Please check our OneDrive for Business – Personal Document Migration service for migration from other platforms, like Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, etc.

Our objective is to migrate all the files of the supported formats from the User folder on a local File Server to OneDrive for Business account of the same user.

Migration will be considered successful when all documents have been transferred to OneDrive for Business.

Our responsibilities. OneDrive for Business has certain limitations. It is advisable to be aware of these limitations before migrating. We will identify and help to fix errors. We will then create the Document Migration project and add the accounts (items) that will be migrated to the project. The next step is performing the migration. During the project, we can notify users that a migration is occurring. Throughout the process, they should not modify any documents in their accounts because any modifications will not be included in the migration. After verifying data and completing migration tasks, we prevent users from inadvertently logging in and using their user accounts by decommissioning the accounts or changing their passwords.

Client responsibilities
