Seamlessly Migrate from Box to OneDrive
Are you migrating from Box to OneDrive to consolidate systems into Office 365? Great choice as OneDrive is offering 1TB for free per user. OneDrive’s functionality has quickly caught up with that of all the other major file sync and share platforms. Cloud FastPath can migrate your users, content, permissions, and sharing at rates of over 60TB per day.
Here are some of the major potential roadblocks to consider before embarking on a Box to OneDrive migration:
- Retain folder structure – If proper tools are not used then, it may be difficult to determine location of elements of a folder structure.
- File path length – With OneDrive’s path length now up to 400 characters, this problem is less likely to occur. However, Cloud FastPath will identify any path length issues in the pre-migration analytics.
- Internal and external user & group permission mapping – Since permissions do not transfer over automatically, either they must be reassigned in OneDrive or a tool must be used to retain them. Cloud FastPath automatically migrates all internal and external accounts, sharing, permissions, and ownership.
- Reporting – Since large amounts of data is being transferred, it is necessary that you are certain that all data is successfully transferred to OneDrive.
- Box file versioning – Box file versions can be migrated but may have to be reassigned in OneDrive. This would be time consuming for millions of documents.
- Box notes – Box notes will have to be converted to readable documents. They would have to be downloaded, converted, then reuploaded to OneDrive. With Cloud FastPath, they are automatically converted.
- Box links Typically Box links represent a connection at a certain point in time. Since absolute links would change no matter what, it is best to audit the current Box links and communicate your users which links will change.
- Groups – Box groups more closely resemble SharePoint Online Groups. Mapping permissions and ownership between Box groups and SharePoint Online Groups ensures smooth adoption
