Adding File Shares as Migration Items

The auto-discovery function within CloudM Migrate does not work for File Shares so each file share need to be added manually or by importing a CSV.

To add a File Share, manually navigate to Step 3 within CloudM Migrate and select +Add items to migrate. Select Add User and populate the following fields:

  • Export Type: User
  • Import Type: Team Site
  • Export Name: Any value
  • Import Name: Google Shared Drive ID (example: 0AC7COL1vLZKYUk9PVA) or Google Workspace username (for personal Drive)
  • Given Name \ Item Name: N/A
  • Family Name: N/A
  • Password: N/A
  • Document Path: Mapped drive letter with subfolder path if needed

Validate Migrate and Drive are checked and select Save to add the migration line item. Repeat for each file share in scope for migration. The folder structure entered under Document Path will be perserved on the destination.

NOTE: The destination for the file share can be a SharePoint site collection or a user OneDrive.

Execute Migration

When ready to execute select the Paper Airplane on the left and select Start to begin the migration.
