I have 30 gigs of data to import to SharePoint online from a file system.

I have already tried mapping my Windows File Explorer to SharePoint.   This process is very slow.  It averages 10Kbs to 50Kbs.

I started following instructions here https://portal.office.com/EAdmin/Compliance/NewIngestionNetworkUploadJob.aspx?pwmcid=1&ReturnObjectType=1&workload=spo to create a package then upload the package but I seem to be stuck on step 3 where you create the package something like
New-SPOMigrationPackage -SourceFilesPath -SourceFilesPath "E:\Source " -OutputPackagePath "c:\Save"

Open in new window

I will call MS for those errors.  My question is if you have found a different way outside of web upload or syncing with one drive or as I pointed out mapping a drive with SharePoint.

The network upload method (the one you described above) is the best free option, other than that there are 3rd party tools you can use, but those come at a price.

I use Files to Go for the SharePoint migrations I perform.  It costs a couple hundred bucks but you will definitely get much better throughput speeds.

Thank you all.

I am going to try to use the network method a little later today and if it looks like it will work inside of a reasonable time I will go with that otherwise Files To Go sounds good and I value Jeffery's recommendation.

Kevin, which of those have you used? and what was the cost?

I tried Sharegate & Lepide and both works for me. I added few more options. So that you could try and check which works best for your environment after that go for a license.

We ran into a few issues.    

One of the major issues I had in creating a package was it kept failing using the SharePoint shell.  As it turns out, MS confirmed the issue was on their end and was working on it.   Another issue is there were too many files for sharepoint online and the end result was to use OneDrive for Business.

If your cheap, then using the network upload is a good choice.  For the price, the 3rd party service would save a lot of time.
