Hi everyone,

 

We have one document library with over 300.000 items in it. We therefore cannot reliably sync this library with OneDrive NGSC.

According to https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office365/servicedescriptions/sharepoint-online-service-description... the current limit is 300.000 across all synced items and libraries. If I remember correctly, this was 100.000 a few months ago.

 

I want to move as many folders and items as possible to a different document library within the same site, but I keep hitting road blocks.

When I use the "move" options in SPO, the process starts and takes a while, then says "finished/completed", but the folders and items are actually not moved. I assume it's because there are to many items in that folder (subfolder/items), but there is no way for me to know how many items that folder really has.

 

What options do I have to reliably move those folders? Is there a command line version that works more reliably?

I would use a third party tool such as ShareGate. Otherwise you might want to try somerhing like this. https://www.petri.com/managing-sharepoint-online-files-powershell
