Migrating home folders to OneDrive for Business

Highlighted
With the new and improved control over OneDrive for Business and all new enterprise features, it is about time to migrate users' home folders. Why should you use your expensive on-premises storage and backup systems, when the data is much more accessable for the user in OneDrive for Business anyway. This session is full of tips, tricks, and demos.

RE: Migrating home folders to OneDrive for Business

I have developed a nice script for searching for the OneDrive limitations++, I will give this script away to anybody that attend my session. For a quick view over the script you can check out my blogpost https://olavtvedt.blogspot.no/2017/09/ignite-session-thr3026-migrating-home.html

Re: Migrating home folders to OneDrive for Business

I have put the script Test-Onedrivepath.ps1 on my blog here https://olavtvedt.blogspot.no/2017/09/ignite-session-thr3026-script.html for those who wants it. Easy to adjust for other file searching/reporting purposes

Re: Migrating home folders to OneDrive for Business

Just copy everything between ---Test-OneDrivePath.ps1 Script Start--- and ---Test-OneDrivePath.ps1 Script Stop--- Into a file and save it as Test-Onedrivepath.ps1

 

Sorry for making it a quick post without enought info, but it was better to get it available and create a guide later
