Moving One User's Onedrive Data to Another user's Onedrive

Hello! I have a user who is no longer with a company and we need to move this user's data in Onedrive to another user's Onedrive. The amount of data is about 213Gb. I have tried the copy/move option but keep getting error that some folders/files didn't move. Exceeded File size limit. Does anyone know of a tool that would allow for a quick way to do that? I realize i can download the data and re-upload it to another user but with microsoft's throttling it will take weeks. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

    Hi @Vladimir Dutin
    As far as I know in OneDrive for Business, it is not possible to transfer the ownership directly from one user to another. The admin must sync the data of the terminated user to his local machine and then migrate the data to the new user.
