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 becomes complicated, especially when each folder has multiple files. Your company must explore alternative methods to conventional data mapping methods to overcome the associated gaps and issues.
Let us find out how CloudFuze’s folder mapping feature helps overcome the challenges in conventional data mapping methods like CSV files.
Why Should You Choose the Folder Mapping Approach?
Most data migration tools provide a CSV data mapping method that helps map user account data from the source to the destination cloud. But in the case of migrating large volumes, it is complicated and time-consuming to maintain granularity in the data mapping.
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 data mapping approach works for straightforward data mapping with fewer folders in each user account, folder mapping is simpler for granular data selection.
So, when your company wants to migrate Box to OneDrive for business, choose the folder mapping method over other approaches.
Data migration tools like CloudFuze allows users to select the required folders under each user account and directly map it with the corresponding files/folders in the destination. It gives room for a granular data selection within each folder and saves considerable time and effort for your internal IT team.
