Migrate Box to OneDrive for Business Through Folder Mapping

Is your organization planning to migrate Box to OneDrive for business? Moving Box data to OneDrive can become challenging, especially when the files and folders have an intricate structure. To overcome such a challenge, your company must explore several methods to map user accounts and their content ( files and folders) and go with the approach that simplifies the overall mapping process.

Out of several mapping approaches, folder mapping is one option from CloudFuze that makes it easy for businesses and their IT teams to perform the mapping based on the root folders. Let us find out how CloudFuze’s folder mapping feature helps overcome the challenges in conventional mapping methods like CSV mapping.

Why Should You Choose the Folder Mapping Approach?

Most data migration tools provide a CSV mapping method that helps map user accounts and their data from the source to the destination cloud. But, when planning for a migration of a significant scale, it can become complicated and time-consuming to maintain granularity in the mapping process.

For example, assume you want to move only 200 folders out of 500 for a single user account and choose 1000 files from the total 2000 files within each folder. It involves a lot of complexity in manually filtering and mapping these across the source and target environment. It only gets more challenging as the number of files and folders increases.

Though the CSV mapping approach works for straightforward user mapping, our folder mapping approach makes it more simple to granularly map user accounts and their data.

With the folder mapping approach, your team can select the required folders under each user account and directly map them with the corresponding files/folders in the destination cloud. It gives room for a granular data selection within each folder and saves considerable time and effort for your internal IT team.
