So, this little hack is not endorsed by Microsoft but for those of you who want to make the move from an on-premise file server to SharePoint Online or from a SharePoint Online Team Site Document Library to an Office 365 Group Library and have thousands of files and gigabytes of data, this little tip is for you!
Well, what’s the tip?
Use SPFileZilla! Wait what? Is that it? Yup, that’s it. I have worked with this software for several years now and it has never failed me. Now there are some reported issues with very complex environments who use Active Directory Federation Services and you can’t migrate all the complicated permissions you had setup on your local file share.
But for pure data migration from one place to another, this utility will save you hours of complex PowerShell scripting or Azure Blog creation, etc….
