    Data protection and ensuring that nothing is lost during the process are two of the most important challenges many IT Admins face. The danger of data loss increases with the size of the migrating effort. Creating a team migration checklist and choosing the right migration service provider beforehand will drastically improve your migration experience when moving many users and data.

    Hi @Rahul

    During Slack to Teams migration execution, it is impossible to predict all possible problems that could result in data loss or corruption. So, ensure that the tool you use to migrate from Slack to Teams only copies and doesn’t move data eliminating it from Slack. As a result, whenever something goes wrong, you will always be able to retrieve the necessary data.
