Many of you have been using for data migrations, either for your organization or just for personal content.

Either way, it’s a perfect product to use. Microsoft is retiring Organizational side but the personal solutions still works like before.

Personal use (for a while)

Now you can migration from:

And migrate to:

How to use as corporate?

Go to and open the migration manager.

From here you can see the sources that you can migrate to OFB easily.

Migrate fromDescription
Get started Box
Collaborate all in one place by migrating your Box documents, data, and users to OneDrive, SharePoint, and Teams in Microsoft 365.
Get started File share
With a centralized way of connecting servers, creating tasks, and managing your migration tasks, migrate your file shares to Microsoft 365.
Get started Google Workspace
Migrate your Google Drives to Microsoft 365.
Get started Dropbox
Collaborate all in one place by migrating your Dropbox documents, data, and users to OneDrive, SharePoint, and Teams in Microsoft 365.
Get started SharePoint Server
Migrate your SharePoint Server sites and content to take advantage of the latest collaboration, intelligence, and security solutions in Microsoft 365. SharePoint Server 2010, 2013, and 2016 environments only.
Get started SharePoint Server workflows
Microsoft removed SharePoint Server 2010 workflow services from existing tenants on November 1, 2020. We recommend that you move your classic SharePoint Server workflows to Power Automate flows. With SPMT, you can migrate your SharePoint Server 2010 out of the box (OOTB) approval and collect feedback workflows to PowerAutomate, List and library “out-of-box” (OOTB) approval workflows, and Workflow definitions and associations.

Other ways to transfer data to cloud

  • Microsoft FastTrack. Microsoft FastTrack services can help you get started with your migration to the cloud.|When you need assistance to help you get started on your migration project.
  • Azure Data Box. Want to remove the dependency on your WAN link to transfer data? The Microsoft Azure Data Box is a service that lets you order a device from the Microsoft Azure portal. You can then copy TBs of data from your servers to the device, ship it back to Microsoft, and your data is copied into Azure. Once your data is in Azure, use SPMT to migrate content to SharePoint. To learn more, see Migrate using the Azure Data Box.
  • OneDrive sync app To migrate users’ Windows known folders (Desktop, Documents, Pictures, Screenshots, and Camera Roll) to OneDrive, you can use Known Folder Move. If users want to move other files from their local computer or a network file share to OneDrive or SharePoint, it’s often easiest for them to use the OneDrive sync app. Users drag their files or folders to a folder they’re syncing.

Ideas for future

Microsoft, add a possibility to migrate directly from iCloud to OneDrive, it would be just to much easier.

I like OneDrive’s look and feel a lot more than iCloud’s. Also the space for OneDrive is expendable up to 25TB with the same price, what a bargain!

Otherwise it has to be like this (which is kinda silly and unpractical)

Over and out,
