Our main Team Site is in the Classic Experience. What is the easiest way to make everything Modern Experience without compromising our files? Or is it easier to start from scratch with a Modern Site?

 

Thank you!!

Hey @Hawkins_IT 

Check out Modernize your classic SharePoint sites | Microsoft Docs
For a Team Site you are in luck, as you have some options.

 

Before deciding on "modernizing" (i.e., groupifying) your existing site, I would consider how much content you have there (docs, pages, list items) and how complex is the architecture (i.e., custom columns, content types). If it's not overly complex, you will likely find it simpler and less risky to simply create a new modern site and move things over gradually.
