We use SP365 for most office files (word, excel, ppt). We are considering whether to move a research dept onto SP.

They have tens of thousands of files distributed across hundreds of directories dating back a decade. Of course, there are countless links between files.

My concern is simple - the potential to break files is high, the "ROI" is low. Moving this collection to a shared file environment makes more sense to me. But - I'm a newbie, so I thought I'd ask the experts.

Help?
Thanks
