Box to OneDrive: How Are Permissions Migrated and Converted

When migrating from Box to OneDrive, the sharing permissions (end-user sharing permissions) within Box should not only be retained but also migrated over.

CloudFuze is one of the few cloud data migration tools that are capable of migrating content (users, files, Box Notes, etc.) and permissions for Box to OneDrive migration and for other cloud suites.

Both Box and OneDrive have a different set of sharing permissions. First, let’s have a quick look at various permissions levels in the Box environment.
