Known folder move option is not an option because we need to also migrate the users' IE Favorites folders.

I don't think the other redirection to OneDrive method will work either because that also requires the users to sync all their files down to a folder structure on their workstation before the files upload out to OneDrive.  Many users will not have enough free disk space to sync the files from the network shares down to their workstation and the process will end up failing part way through.

What methods are available to automate mass transferring many user's redirected desktop, documents, favorites and pictures folders directly to OneDrive for Business without requiring the intermediate step of downloading all their files down to their PC?
