A subscription to Files To Go includes one Tenant Seat. This permits one user to operate Files To Go to migrate files and folders to your site collections and to OneDrive for Business sites.

If you have a large migration you can purchase additional seats to help split the workload between your colleagues or to migrate in parallel on multiple computers.

  • Migrating in bulk to your team sites can also help on large migrations. To migrate in bulk choose the Bulk Team Site Migration option.
  • Files To Go Screenshot
  • Provide Files To Go with a CSV format file with a batch of the source locations and destination libraries or folders in your team sites to migrate to. Files To Go provides a sample CSV file for you to use as a starting point for your own. Use optional file name filters to exclude file types from the migration.

Files To Go will analyse each source folder and destination location providing a summary of how much data there is to migrate and highlighting any issues. Follow the remaining wizard steps to migrate the files and view your migration report. Migrating in bulk makes large migrations easier to manage.

Files To Go can analyse and migrate from many Active Directory home folders or personal folders on a file server to OneDrive for Business in bulk. If you prefer central migration, then bulk OneDrive for Business migration could work for you.

  • Choose the Bulk OneDrive for Business Migration option to start the process.
  • Files To Go Screenshot

Provide Files To Go with a CSV file. Each row in the CSV file identifies an Office 365 user and the location of their personal folder or home drive.

  • Use optional columns in the CSV to refine the migration. Use file name filters to exclude file types like executables and archive files. You can migrate to subfolders in the users' OneDrive for Business. Exclude folder paths like AppData and Favorites from the migration.
  • Files To Go Screenshot
  • Now choose your CSV file in Files To Go.
  • Files To Go Screenshot

  • Files To Go Screenshot

After that, Files To Go takes care of the whole analysis and migration for you, even managing permissions on OneDrive for Business and warning you if OneDrive for Business storage thresholds and item limits will be exceeded.

Bulk migration is an add-on to your Files To Go subscription. If you have many source folders or OneDrive for Business to migrate you should consider adding bulk migration to your subscription.
