Transfer Data from Dropbox to OneDrive with External Shares

When migrating from Dropbox to OneDrive, organizations need to ensure that the external sharing permissions remain intact to make sure they don’t miss out on external collaborations. This is where CloudFuze’s capability to accurately retain external shares helps. This blog post explores the importance of migrating external shares from Dropbox to OneDrive and how CloudFuze caters to this need.

Why Migrate External Share Permissions from Dropbox to OneDrive Migration?

External shares help organizations freely collaborate with external users like clients, freelancers, and other stakeholders. However, if these sharing permissions are not retained during cloud office migration, organizations will risk losing the collaboration. And the manual re-sharing of each file/folder to the external collaborators can be unnecessarily time consuming and complicated.

Additionally, the organization will run the risk of data breaches and probable security challenges, which can be highly complex to resolve, resulting in significant financial losses. That’s why it is highly crucial to choose a reliable migration partner like CloudFuze to securely and accurately migrate external permissions from Dropbox to OneDrive.
