Hello all,

 

I am working on the rollout of OneDrive for our users using Known Folder move. At the moment we have these folders redirected to a file share and is the data offline available. As most users have a lot of data I am using SPMT to perform an initial load as described at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/onedrive/redirect-known-folders#transition-from-the-windows-folder-.... When I then disable the redirection and enable the move using GPO everything seems to work fine, except that it’s not merging the folders, but creating duplicate files. I have tested with disabling offline folder sync, but that did not make a difference. When I try to move manually the OneDrive client says it found files with the same name and will add “-Copy” to the new files to preserve both files. I understand that, but according to the documentation it should not create copies but merge the folders during the move.

 

I there anyone who has gone through this process that can help me out?

 

Regards,

Gert

Wow this is big, I'd love an answer on this as we were just thinking about using SPMT to seed users folders to OneDrive.
