User Case: How Do I Migrate from Egnyte to SharePoint Online?


Migrating from Egnyte to SharePoint Online

Hey everyone, so recently I took on a client that was using Egnyte as per their previous MSP. I want to migrate them from Egnyte 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 Egnyte?


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!

Why Migrate Egnyte to SharePoint Online?

SharePoint provides a variety of features and benefits that help improve business collaboration. For example, SharePoint provides a central location for storing and sharing files, which helps reduce the need to email files back and forth. Additionally, SharePoint provides tools for managing tasks and projects, which can help improve team productivity. 

Quite a few organizations are using Egnyte and benefiting from its various capabilities. Then, implementing Egnyte to SharePoint migration can bring more benefits.

  • Seamless Integration: SharePoint Online is tightly integrated with Microsoft 365 apps, streamlining collaboration and document management for teams already using Microsoft tools like Word, Excel, and Teams.
  • Scalability: SharePoint Online offers flexible storage options, making it easy to scale as your organization grows, while Egnyte may have limitations on storage capacity.
  • Cost Efficiency: For organizations already subscribed to Microsoft 365, migrating to SharePoint Online can result in cost savings by consolidating services and reducing the need for multiple software subscriptions.

However, there are also concerns about whether a business or organization can migrate data from Egnyte to SharePoint. In fact, data stored in Egnyte can be transferred. After Amazon S3, OneDrive for Business, MEGA, FTP, Wasabi, Dropbox, Egnyte and Google Drive integration, you can also migrate Egnyte to those popular storage services.

How to Migrate Egnyte to SharePoint [2 Feasible Ways]

When using cloud storage platforms to store large amounts of data, businesses or organizations often do not encounter particularly difficult problems because there are many cloud storage providers today that offer cloud file storage or cloud file sharing services.

Solution 1: Do Egnyte to SharePoint Migration Automatically

The ease of the migration process depends largely on the methods and tools you use.
