File Systems Migration to SharePoint

DocAve Migrator for File Systems Migration

Migrate. Quickly consolidate enterprise content from legacy systems or previous Microsoft SharePoint versions into Microsoft SharePoint 2013, SharePoint 2010, and SharePoint Online.

File System Migrator allows organizations to:

  • Easily streamline the data transfer

    from File systems to SharePoint
  • Preserve and map all associated metadata and security settings

    of File System content during the migration
  • Plan migration jobs according to business needs

    with granular or bulk content migration and customizable job scheduling

DocAve File System Migrator efficiently migrates documents from traditional Windows-based file systems or networked file shares to Microsoft SharePoint 2013, SharePoint 2010, and SharePoint Online. SharePoint administrators can easily automate the process of consolidating the full spectrum of corporate-wide document sources onto SharePoint, thereby maximizing the return on investment in existing content residing in local and shared file systems.

To ensure a complete and successful migration, DocAve's Pre-Migration Scanner provides a detailed analysis of the migration before it is performed. The DocAve Pre-Migration Scanner will detect and notify you of any illegal characters, user permissions, user names, user domains, and other legacy elements that must be mapped in order to migrate successfully into SharePoint.

Looking to migrate data across SharePoint of the same version or within one SharePoint farm? Check out DocAve Content Manager.

DocAve Migrators and Content Manager form our Migration Solution that offers migration from previous and current SharePoint versions and a variety of legacy platforms to SharePoint 2010, 2013, or SharePoint Online.
