Management found that personal data can better be stored in OneDrive for Business instead of on the home share on premises. Now it's time to move that data without hurting the end user. Is Know Folder Move (KFM) enough to do the job or is it time to show off some PowerShell skills to customize the journey into a painless operation? In this session Raymond Comvalius shows how he managed to migrate a large bank from file shares to OneDrive and share the lessons he learned along the way.

Number of comments on this: Why move terabytes and terabytes of user data? Is it even all needed anymore?  MSFT actually just pushed out ODfB and let users self-service move files they cared about into ODfB. At some point, old user files just went away. Seems like there should be a better migration path from redirected folders to KFM.
