SharePoint Data Migration from Virtual to Cloud

Hello all and thank you for taking the time to read about my SharePoint support needs.

I have a client who was originally running SharePoint 2007 on a Physical server. About a year ago, I migrated them to a virtual server and life has been great since. This month they decided to move this same SharePoint to the cloud.

I chose Intermedia.net. We are currently using SharePoin 2010 Enterprise addition. We are migrating them to the cloud version which is SharePoint 2010 Foundation. We understand that there will be some options lost here and are ok with that.

The only way I have been able to migrate the data is to create two (2) WEBDEV connections and drag and drop the folders one at a time. This process is painfully slow. There is only about 16 gigs of documents in the original sharepoint and it has taken almost a week to move about 5 gigs. Is there any other process that can help this happen faster ?

I really could use some solid input here. Also, like every other IT project, I am on a shoe-string budget with almost no money to spend on software.

Let me know some good news please :- )

Unfortunately there is no good way to do it out of the box, other than what you are doing now.  An alternative would be purchasing a tool to do the migration, which would likely be faster as it wouldn't be using the same protocol.
