Release Notes - July 2021


Teams: Migrate Planner

Teams: Migrate Teams and Channel Settings

MigrationWiz now migrates team settings and channel settings by default for Teams to Teams migration projects created after July 26.

If you wish to migrate team settings and channel settings for projects created before July 26, add ‘TeamsMigrateAdditionalSettings=1’ under Support Options and continue your migration.

Refer to the Microsoft Teams to Microsoft Teams Migration Guide and MigrationWiz: Migrated and Not Migrated Items guides for more info.

Google Drive to OneDrive for Business

MigrationWiz now migrates files, folders, permissions, versions (up to 25), metadata and shortcuts from Google Drive to OneDrive for Business.


Default number of version to migrate is 1, maximum is 25. The number of versions to be migrated per project can be configured under Advanced Options: Source/Destination tab


  • File/Folder name
  • Modified date (based on the modified date of latest version migrated)
  • Modified by (based on the modified date of latest version migrated)
  • Created date (based on the created date of latest version migrated)
  • Description is migrated to ‘Title' column at destination. Migrated value is limited to the existing character limit of the 'Title’ field.
  • ‘Creator’ metadata is migrated but in some cases this value may not be accurate. This is a current limitation without a workaround.


Shortcuts are migrated as a .URL file to the destination document library if the target file exists within ‘My Drive’ of the migrated user. Shortcuts are to be migrated as a subsequent migration step, after migrating all relevant documents & permissions.

Large migrations

The Google Drive to OneDrive for Business migration scenario now also supports migrations of over 15GB via below Advanced Options. These settings will prevent timeout errors when an import takes more than 10 minutes to complete.

  • Set LargeFileMigrations=1
    • Set LargeFileMigrationsTimeout=7200000
      • 7200000 value is an example; time is measured in milliseconds

Personal Archive Project

MigrationWiz now also supports the migration of Recoverable Items from archived mailboxes in Microsoft 365 and Exchange environments.

This will migrate the following recoverable items:

  • Mail

  • Calendar

  • Contacts

  • Tasks

  • Journals

  • Notes

The following folder types are supported:

  • Recoverable items: Deletions

  • Recoverable items: Purges

  • Recoverable items: Versions

  • Recoverable items: DiscoveryHolds

How to Migrate 

  1. Create a new Personal Archive migration project.

  2. Under Advanced Options, in the Source/Destination tab, set the source and destination to Archive Recoverable Items.
    Note: Both source and destination endpoints must be Microsoft 365 for this option to be visible.
    This is specific to Archive Recoverable Items.

  3. Add Support Option MigrateAllRecoverableItems=1. Without this option, only email items will be migrated.

  4. Add Support Option OverrideRecoverableItemsFolderMapping=1. This option will apply folder mappings from source to destination for Deletions, Purges, and Versions. Without this item, all source folders will be migrated to Recoverable items -> Deletions.

  5. Start migration by selecting only Mail items in the Select what to migrate section. This will migrate all items. However, the folder type for recoverable items is recognized as a Mail folder by MigrationWiz. 

Refer to the Recoverable Items (Microsoft 365 or Exchange) Migration Guide for more information.
