    Hi @Kevin Egan

    After migration, SharePoint Migration Tool will generate logs and reports automatically under the path:

    C:\Users\spsetup\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\MigrationTool\

    The reports is to Monitor and reporting status of migration tasks.

    You could also save a JSON file or text file which includes the migration source and destination during the migration when you click "Save", the path is selected by yourself.

    Hi @Kevin Egan

    This depends where you install SPMT, the location of the folders created automatically will all be under %appdata%\Microsoft\MigrationTool.
