We are looking to migrate a bunch of data from our on-prem file server to the cloud. We are using OneDrive Business, synced SPO folders and a classic on-prem server as the source. We are seeing some problems from time to time. Mostly the long file name/path issue. Does SPMT create a log file of the errors or do some sort of pre-move checking to see which files are having problems? Thanks.
