Retain Custom Metadata During Box Data Migration to OneDrive

Ensuring a complete replication when planning a Box to OneDrive migration requires organizations and their IT team to preserve all the properties of user data, including metadata. And in Box for Business, users have the option to add custom metadata properties to their files and folders as part of improving their collaboration processes.

With our content migration tool CloudFuze X-Change, your organization can migrate all the custom metadata parameters to OneDrive, apart from standard metadata, such as timestamps.

As part of your organization’s plan to ensure complete replication of Box in OneDrive through the migration, your IT team can migrate all the custom metadata of the entire files and folders in Box to OneDrive for Business.
