Google Drive to OneDrive for Business
MigrationWiz now migrates files, folders, permissions, versions (up to 25), metadata and shortcuts from Google Drive to OneDrive for Business.
Default number of version to migrate is 1, maximum is 25. The number of versions to be migrated per project can be configured under Advanced Options: Source/Destination tab
- File/Folder name
- Modified date (based on the modified date of latest version migrated)
- Modified by (based on the modified date of latest version migrated)
- Created date (based on the created date of latest version migrated)
- Description is migrated to ‘Title’ column at destination. Migrated value is limited to the existing character limit of the ‘Title’ field.
- ‘Creator’ metadata is migrated but in some cases this value may not be accurate. This is a current limitation without a workaround.
Shortcuts are migrated as a .URL file to the destination document library if the target file exists within ‘My Drive’ of the migrated user. Shortcuts are to be migrated as a subsequent migration step, after migrating all relevant documents & permissions.
The Google Drive to OneDrive for Business migration scenario now also supports migrations of over 15GB via below Advanced Options. These settings will prevent timeout errors when an import takes more than 10 minutes to complete.
- Set LargeFileMigrations=1
- 7200000 value is an example; time is measured in milliseconds
- Set LargeFileMigrationsTimeout=7200000
