Migrate folder redirection to OneDrive for Business

I've done a lot of searching about this but have not found a clear step-by-step on how to accomplish this:

  1. We've used folder redirection via GPO for years to redirect user's Documents, Desktop, and Pictures to an on-premise file server

  2. I want to sunset the file server redirect method and have every user's home directory set to their OneDrive

  3. The contents of their data should be moved in the background with no user interaction

  4. This guide: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/onedrive/redirect-known-folders illustrates the steps but finally states that it won't work if user's folders have been previously redirected via GPO.

  5. It suggests using Mover or Sharepoint Migration Tool to accomplish the task but doesn't give detailed info on how to actually do this

  6. How do I use either of these tools to move user's redirected files from \\fileserver\users\username to their individual OneDrive accounts?

Research seems to suggest I setup a CSV that contains information that will bulk move data using the Sharepoint Migration Tool but I get stuck at this point.

How do I setup the CSV and then utilize either tool to move data to each user's OneDrive?

Then how do I remove the existing folder redirection GPO once all files have been moved? I assume by unlinking the policy from the OU.

Thanks for your help!

Hi @RahulSukumar-3862,

OneDrive for Business is currently not supported in the Q&A forums, the supported products are listed over here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/answers/products (more to be added later on).

You can ask the experts in the dedicated OneDrive for Business forum over here:
