User Case: How Do I Migrate Egnyte to OneDrive?


Migrating from Egnyte


Hey everyone, so recently I took on a client that was using Egnyte as per their previous MSP. I want to migrate them from Egynte to Onedrive/Sharepoint as they are already paying for the premium license tier. My question is, does anyone know of a fast and efficient way of pulling data from Egynte? I tried setting up an Egnyte storage sync server, but it doesn't seem to want to pull the users and folders from the cloud.

I'm thinking about just setting up a USB drive, and using the admin account to sync everything, but I'm concerned it won't all come through with virtual files and all that. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

Egnyte is an enterprise file sharing and collaboration tool that allows users to securely access, share and collaborate with colleagues and partners from any device. OneDrive is a secure file access, sharing and storage solution that enables users to store and share photos, videos, documents, and more from any device, anytime.

Today, many personal or business users have problems with Egnyte and OneDrive. There is a lot of data in Egnyte that needs to be migrated to OneDrive, but there is no suitable method and tool to support it. This post will provide 2 ways to migrate from Egnyte to OneDrive:  MultCloud and Microsoft Migration Manager.

Preparations for Egnyte to OneDrive Migration

If your Egnyte has a lot of data and involves a lot of permission issues, Egnyte migration to OneDrive can be a daunting task. Therefore, before you start, you'd better do the following:

1. Run a speed test by going to https://.egnyte.com/speed-test/. This will check the available bandwidth from the local server to the cloud. This doesn't guarantee throughput speed, but it will at least give you a baseline.

2. To classify the data in Egnyte, you need to know which ones are extremely important and which ones need to be deleted. And make sure to create users and groups for your domain in Egnyte for easy batch migration.

3. Ensure that Egnyte and OneDrive can log in to avoid timely response to transmission errors.

4. Check out the product guide and FAQ to get a basic understanding of the tool.

5. Communicate with your users to help them understand the migration process. They can continue to use the data on the source for standard day-to-day file system activities. However, it is critical not to move, rename, or delete large datasets during the data migration process. This type of activity can seriously compromise the success of the migration and the integrity of the final dataset.
