# PowerShell for Migration

Can I confirm that this is the latest link to do migration to SharePoint Online using PowerShell https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepointmigration/overview-spmt-ps-cmdlets

For moving files from file shares, is SPMT better or New-SPOMigrationPackage? I had been using New-SPOMigrationPackage commands sometimes to move files to sharepoint library.

# Re: PowerShell for Migration

you are correct that this link is the latest around powershell for migration https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepointmigration/overview-spmt-ps-cmdlets

Those new-spomigrationpackage powershell commands are at this point deprecated and have not been improved in many years. We simply have not remove them to not break anyone.

The powershell for SPMT are much more robust and preserve much more.
