Copy Box Files to SharePoint Online with Incremental Changes

copy Box files to SharePoint Online

As companies evolve, how they store their business data changes subsequently. When moving data from one cloud to another, a one-time migration is insufficient for 100% data replication in the target environment. This is where delta migration comes into the picture to help transfer the incremental changes.

This blog post demonstrates the approach to copy Box files to SharePoint Online with incremental changes and highlights the importance of performing single and multiple dealt migrations.

Why Should Organizations Perform Delta Migration?

When performing a migration, users continue working with the existing files and folders in the source cloud. As a result, incremental changes start to build up in the files and folders. To reflect these new changes in the destination cloud platform, it is important to migrate only the incremental changes and not the entire data all over again.

By executing a single or multiple delta migration, your IT team can ensure that all the incremental changes are migrated and the entire migrated data is up to date post-migration.

How to Copy Box Files to SharePoint Online With Incremental Changes?

Choose the Right Migration Tool

As a first step towards copying Box files to SharePoint Online with incremental changes, choose a third-party migration tool capable of performing a delta migration.

CloudFuze is a leading cloud data migration tool that can execute delta migration to transfer all the incremental changes that the end users have made in the source cloud during the one-time migration.

Configure Settings

After choosing the migration tool, configure and select its settings to enable delta migration. This step explicitly informs the tool to choose only the incremental changes made during the one-time migration.

Start the Migration

Once the migration team meets the prerequisites, and prepares the SharePoint Online sites, kick-start the migration process and closely observe the status. The migration tool authenticates and connects with the source (Box) and the destination (SharePoint Online) and compares data on both platforms.

Based on the comparison, it detects only the incremental changes and migrates them precisely to the destination cloud.

Validate the Delta Migration

Once the migration tool completes the delta migration between Box and SharePoint Online, validate the results to check if the migration has been successful. With the help of migration reports, your IT team can verify the data’s accuracy and integrity to ensure there has been no data loss or failure during the delta migration.

CloudFuze’s capability to perform comprehensive delta migrations to copy incremental changes of Box files to SharePoint Online is unmatched. It enables companies to ensure there all the incremental changes are intact in the files and folders in the destination cloud.
