We started moving files from a personal folders on a shared network to OneDrive using a 3rd party tool.   We had Documents, Desktop and Pictures mapped to the shared network and want to remap to OneDrive Microsoft released Know Folder Move while we are in the process.  It seems like we should use KFM to remap the folders, but when we have tested this, it makes duplicate copies of the files in OD.  Do I need to delete all the local copies before remapping or am I missing something?

Did you ever get an answer on this issue?  I've just started testing KFM and have found the same issue with duplicates.  I'm trying to figure out what to do about it.

 

Thanks,

Bill

Not really, they thought it might have been something with this the tool that got fixed with a newer release.  It seemed limited to a few users, but the project got put on hold and I moved on to a different project.

Is this what you are experiencing? Where you get copy of copies of shortcuts?
