Hi,
 I want to migrate files from file  server to a document Library in SharePoint 2013.
 On a file server say 10 thousand files are there.
 I want to 1st create 8 thousand folders, then inside each folder 1 or max 3 files to be stored.
 I am using 1 Excel sheet for this with 2 columns ,where-
1.Folder Name, 2.Path of files (from which I  migrate files ).
So I will first create a folder for a set of few files then I want files into that folder.
 Any starting code pls

If you are simply copying files to another location you might want to just use Robocopy...

PAQ - http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/Windows_Server_2008/Q_28258952.html

Use this example below...
robocopy source destination /E /ZB /DCOPY:T /COPYALL /R:1 /W:1 /V /TEE /LOG:Robocopy.log

Here's what the switches mean:

•source :: Source Directory (drive:\path or \\server\share\path).
•destination :: Destination Dir (drive:\path or \\server\share\path).
•/E :: copy subdirectories, including Empty ones.
•/ZB :: use restartable mode; if access denied use Backup mode.
•/DCOPY:T :: COPY Directory Timestamps.
•/COPYALL :: COPY ALL file info (equivalent to /COPY:DATSOU). Copies the Data, Attributes, Timestamps, Ownser, Permissions and Auditing info
•/R:n :: number of Retries on failed copies: default is 1 million but I set this to only retry once.
•/W:n :: Wait time between retries: default is 30 seconds but I set this to 1 second.
•/V :: produce Verbose output, showing skipped files.
•/TEE :: output to console window, as well as the log file.
•/LOG:file :: output status to LOG file (overwrite existing log).

That should be fine. You can use the UNC path to the library and transfer the files needed.
