Reduce Box to OneDrive migration friction

Cloud storage costs are rising with providers like Box and Google. And many businesses are switching to Microsoft OneDrive for cheaper storage and better teamwork tools. But migrating without a strong partner can be a challenge. DryvIQ can easily address some of the most pressing challenges while migrating files from Box to OneDrive.

Analyze your data before migrating

Manual migration methods lack scanning abilities to identify data islands, flag remediation, or permissions insights. Understanding this data is crucial for planning a successful Box to OneDrive migration.

With DryvIQ’s Box to OneDrive migration tool, you can analyze and simulate your project before transfer. Before migration, you can discover potential challenges without moving a single file. With DryvIQ, organizations understand exactly what the migration will look like, and fix potential problems before they occur.

Easily manage user permissions across platforms

User permissions can differ greatly between Box and OneDrive. As a result, there is no way to automatically map them when using manual or basic migration methods. The DryvIQ platform can transform and map user accounts, Box file sharing, and group permissions from Box to OneDrive at scale.

Migrate Box Notes and document version history

Manual migrations and copy methods struggle with Box Notes and document version history transfer. Without proper management, you will lose the rich file fidelity stored within Box. However, DryvIQ ensures data integrity by automatically converting Box Notes to Word documents during migration.

Automatically remediate Box to OneDrive file transfer errors

Manual file remediation after failed transfers is time-consuming and risky. Organizations risk losing file fidelity, history, or attributes due to incompatible name lengths, characters, or sizes between Box and OneDrive.

DryvIQ offers a pre-remediation process to identify files it cannot migrate ahead of time. For instance, Box allows for thousands of characters in a file name, but OneDrive has a 400-pathway character limit.

In cases like this, the DryvIQ platform can automatically truncate file path lengths or transform conflicting file names. In more complicated instances of incompatibility, DryvIQ will flag the administrator for any files requiring manual correction.

Eliminate business disruption during migration

During your Box to OneDrive migration, employees may not be able to access content. Relying on end-users to move files themselves or a sudden cutover without a transition period harms business operations.

The DryvIQ platform’s real-time file synchronization between Box and OneDrive eliminates this issue. DryvIQ calls this continuous copy, which constantly streams changes in files, folders, and even deletes between source and destination. The synchronization period aids change management and boosts user adoption, making users familiar with the new platform before migration.
