I found an article from 12/2019 saying that once you hit the transfer button (and then don't cutover right away), when you come back it will change to say "transfer differences."  I want it to do this so that I can run the initial transfer for timing and testing purposes before we do the actual cutover, but on all 3 servers I've run the data transfer, none of them say "transfer differences."  Has this feature been removed?  I would hate to transfer ALL the files every time and it would save time if it would just transfer different files or same files with different/newer updated dates on them (meaning users made changes and I want to make sure those changes get copied over as well).

 

Any help?

I figured out how to resolve this issue by doing the following:

 

1) installing storage migration service proxy on destination servers

2) installing windows updates
