How to transfer OneDrive for business to a seperate OneDrive for Business Account..Please help!!

Background: Part of a recent acquisition and we are moving to new OneDrive for Business accounts, is there a way to transfer all of files to our new OneDrive accounts without simply downloading and zipping them? 

 

I have tried to create a flow but it only allows me to select one folder at a time and I cannot tell if it is even working - any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi @DD2,

 

If you want to transfer files from OneDrive for business account(1) to a seperate OneDrive for Business account(2),

You could refer to steps below to acheive your requirement:

 

1. make sure the connection account in the "List files in folder" action and "Get file content" action are use OneDrive for business account(1).

2.make sure the connection account in the "Create file" action is use OneDrive for business account(2).

The expression in the "Folder Path" field of "Create file" action as below:

 

first(split(items('Apply_to_each')?['Path'],last(split(items('Apply_to_each')?['Path'],'/'))))

 

 

The expression in the "File Name" field of "Create file" action as below:

last(split(items('Apply_to_each')?['Path'],'/'))

The flow would run successfully as below:

Best regards,

Alice

@DD2- Please note that if you opt for a solution using Flow, the account that is used for the OneDrive connections will need access to both the source and destination OneDrive locations.

I would like to suggest that using a tool such as PowerShell to accomplish the file transfers might be more appropriate than using Flow.

 

Also, there are a number of third party tools that can assist you - Sharegate comes immediately to mind and I believe they have a free trial.

In the "List files in folder" how did you get the "include sub folders"? I can not ge tthis up at all.

 

Also it will not allow me to to add the "Body" in the "Apply to each".  the only option availble is "value".

 

Has this changed since this solution was made?  Please help!

 

Thanks

 

**On trying again more options appeared.  I have copied the flow yet it fails.  I had to use "List files in root folder" for the rest of the options to be available.**
