Hi all, 

 

As the title suggests, could you please advise whether it's possible to merge old Sharepoint sites, or if not, whether it's possible to move data on mass from Sharepoint to Teams? 

 

Thanks in advance, 

Scott

About connecting classic sites to a new modern office 365 team site:

Also if this is not many sites, syncing both the old and new library and then copy / move the files between is a simple solution!

You can copy/move files and folders from the SharePoint interface as well!

My two cents here:
(1) Connect Sites to new SPO groups is only valid for the root site of a Site Collection. If you have subsites, then you will no have this option
(2) If you need to move a great amount of documents and also some othert SPO stuff such as SPO lists, then the Copy / Move To feature can be tricky and not enough. You should consider to invest on a migration tool that can help you here
