Windows Server 2019 Storage Migration Service

Copper Contributor

I really want to use Storage Migration Service to migrate our Win 2008 r2 File server to Win 2019. Data transfer has just completed with no errors but I've noticed weird things and want to double check that with you.

  • Following Data transfer, some folders and files got encrypted to the destination server (Win 2019). No files are encrypted on the source server (Win 2008 r2).
  • All my domain users and groups have been copied locally to the destination server.

Thanks for your help.

@Sem2020 I too am having this problem, they appear encrypted on the destination, but not on the source. This is causing me problems uploading the files to Azure File Sync. Can someone from Microsoft comment on this?
