    Hello

    What happens with OfB client when the user is migrated? He download again all data from the new OfB account?

    Is possible zero impact about bandwith?

    Hi Edward Canales,

    MigrationWiz seamlessly migrates documents from the Source to the Destination, along with existing permissions. However, disabling the client sync for the Source, and enabling it for the Destination, must be performed at the individual client machine level. This Microsoft article provides additional information about the OneDrive for Business sync client: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Get-started-with-the-new-OneDrive-sync-client-in-Windows-615391c4-2bd3-4aae-a42a-858262e42a49

    The only way to lessen bandwidth impact is to perform option 2 as outlined in this article: https://help.bittitan.com/hc/en-us/articles/115008258648

    Hi Rob, thanks for your response

    But, I'll remake my question:

    1. The customer have 25 O365 accounts with OfB client installed in their computers, each one with many files synced (10GB avg). This accounts will be migrated to another o365 tenant with same domain name.
    2. I'll use migrationwiz for copy all data OfB and Exchange Online too.
    3. After of migration,turn off the OneDrive service from source O365 tenant.
    4. I go to each client computers and remove account from OfB. I keep the files synced on computer.
    5. I configure the new account O365 (same user logon name) The question is... the files located on computer can be to syncronize with the new o365 account in order to not download again?

    The customer wants low impact for his clients and his bandwidth =/

    Thanks (sorry for my english)
