    What happens with Google link sharing types:

    * On - public on the web

    * On - anyone with the link

    * On - anyone within organisation can find and access

    * On - anyone within organisation with the link

    Hi Si Chan,

    The Google sharing links are not migrated because the links cannot be converted to OneDrive for Business sharing links.

    Hello Rob,

    The documents that an external user shares with me, will the OneDrive for Business continue to appear?

    I noticed in the section around the Sync Migration Pass, it recommends to disable Versioning on OneDrive or Sharepoint Online.  But according to this MS articles, O365 Tenants since Oct 2018 have had that feature turned off, and do not allow Versioning to be disabled.

    https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-OneDrive-Blog/New-Updates-to-OneDrive-and-SharePoint-Team-Site-Versioning/ba-p/204390

    Plus, the documentation here is vague... there is no Sync Migration Pass, only the Trial Migration, Pre-Stage Migration, and Full Migration options, just like an email migration project.

    So, are they saying to only set the SyncItems=1 to the last Full Migration pass, or is it recommended to keep that option on for all migration passes, while clearing the Statistics between each pass... it is confusing for me.  Not sure what I should do to help prevent multiple documents showing up in OneDrive for Business.

    Or should I run only one pass, and hope it doesn't get partial data and require multiple passes?

    Hello Ed,

    Sorry for the confusion. With the SyncItems=1 option, that should only be ran on the final pass of the migration. It is not recommended to run multiple passes with this option. This can cause your OneDrive collections to balloon exponentially. So your original thought was correct. Only set and run the SyncItems=1 option on the final pass of the migration once you have migrated all the data over to the OneDrive.

     

    Regards,

    Hello Joey,

    We do not have a video guide for this project type. However, we do have a way for you to run a trial migration. Simply set up the project following the steps in the above guide and select 'Trial Migration' when selecting the type of migration pass you wish to run. Tis pass does not require any licenses, and will allow you to move a handful of items to give you a feel of how the migration will proceed.

    Thank you for your question.

    Regards,

    Nicholas

    Hello,

    Could you let me know whether this works for Google One  2TB Subscription? It's not a Free account nor is it a G-Suite account.

    Sam,

    If you can follow this KB and perform these tasks there is a chance it will work.  You can then configure a migration project and run a free trial migration to test.

    Thank you

    Kyle
