CloudFuze also supports manual and CSV methods in case your company’s migration requirements are different.

Finally, choose whether to migrate Shared Links. Then, click on the Next button.
Step 15: Preview and Start Migration
Preview all your selections and click on the Start Migration button. This will start the file transfer process.
