Office 365 Migration - Folder Structure and Batch Questions
Posted on 2015-01-09
Greetings. A consultant suggested we use a third party migration tool such as Migration Wizard to migrate our on-premises mailboxes to Office 365. I've been trying to compare Migration Wizard with Microsoft's built-in migration batch process. I can't find the answer to a couple questions, so I'll try here:
1. Migration Wiz (and other utilities) advertise that they keep the users' folder hierarchy intact (i.e. subfolders beneath the Inbox, etc.). If we use Microsoft's migration batch process, does it do the same thing ?
2. I've been told that you can select specific mailboxes to migrate first with Migration Wizard and other third-party utilities, so that you can migrate say, large mailboxes first, then smaller ones. I don't think Microsoft's solution allows that, but I'm not sure.
3. I am presuming that public folders are not migration by Microsoft's utility, but I've read that this can be done through Powershell. Is this true ?
