Transfer Files From Dropbox to SharePoint With Report Validation
Once you migrate Dropbox data to SharePoint Online, organizations must find out if the migration process has been successfully completed through an extensive evaluation of the data migration report.
This blog post describes the various parameters to be cross verified in a data migration report when you transfer files from Dropbox to SharePoint Online. It helps IT admins and business leaders verify the accuracy and comprehensiveness of Dropbox migration to SharePoint without any issues.
1. Migration Timeline
Before initiating the Dropbox migration to SharePoint, your business team would have estimated the migration timeline on how long it will take to complete the process. By verifying the start and end times in the migration report, you can confirm whether the migration process has been finished within that planned time limit.
If there’s any delay in the actual timeline, it means you need to optimize the migration to speed up the process.
Data migration experts at CloudFuze help verify the migration report and ensure that the Dropbox to SharePoint migration is executed within the expected timeline.
2. Source and Destination Paths
Once you have successfully copied your files from Dropbox to SharePoint Online, verifying the source and destination file/folder paths is important. This helps ensure your source data has moved to the destination cloud using the pre-planned path.
CloudFuze provides auto-mapping of source and destination user accounts based on email ids. Plus, they also offer an alternate method of mapping user accounts through CSV files.
CloudFuze’s managed migration team compares and cross-verifies the source and destination paths in the migration report against the CSV user mapping file when you migrate Dropbox files to SharePoint. This way, any discrepancies during migration can be ruled out.
3. Data Volume
After you migrate data from Dropbox to SharePoint Online, you must ensure there has been no data loss in the process.
One way to confirm this is by checking whether every batch’s data size matches the values in the migration report. For instance, if a batch of 30 users, equal to 30 TB of data, is transferred from Dropbox to SharePoint, you must verify whether all the data is successfully migrated.
CloudFuze experts perform a data volume check through a migration report validation process during Dropbox migration to SharePoint to ensure that the same data size gets transferred from individual batches to the destination cloud. This way, you can be sure that your data is safe without any issues.
4. Number of Files/Folders Migrated
When migrating data from Dropbox to SharePoint Online, there is a risk that some folders or files may be missing or corrupted at the destination. But how can you identify if this has occurred?
One way to identify and overcome this issue is by verifying the total number of files and folders in the data migration report. Doing this ensures that you have moved the same number of Dropbox files to SharePoint Online and that no files or folders are left behind.
5. Conflicts and Warnings
Migration report validation helps identify any conflicts or warnings that may arise during the migration process when you transfer files from Dropbox to SharePoint Online. You can gain a complete understanding of your migration project through this structured validation process using data migration reports. It also helps businesses make better-informed decisions for their data migration projects.
