While SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business do offer some compelling features for uploading and storing files in the cloud, it is important to understand that such a powerful document management platform is very different from a traditional network file share. If you’d like to know more about what’s involved, please read our blog article “How to Smoothly Migrate Files to Office 365 SharePoint Online” at blog.liquidmercurysolutions.com or you can ask us for a copy.
We check your files to make sure that they will migrate smoothly into SharePoint. This involves making sure there are no security gotchas, that the folder structure does not exceed system limits on path names, and that the files do not contain any illegal characters. We detect and report any problems so they can be corrected before the migration starts.
