How do I migrate file share folders (with contents) into a SharePoint online Document Set?

I'm migrating network file folders to a SharePoint Document library. I'd like the folder to be created as a Document Set vs. a folder. Is there a way to do that? I'd also like to automate the meta-data for the Document Set with the folder name & possibly other details. Any way to do that besides manually?

    Hi @Anonymous ,

    Welcome to Q&A Forum!

    You can migrate file share folders (with contents) into a SharePoint Online Document Set using Microsoft SharePoint Migration Tool (SPMT). For more information, please see "Overview of the SharePoint Migration Tool (SPMT)" article.

    Here is my test:

    1.Start a new migration task

    2.Select "File share" option

    3.Enter or paste the source url and select "Migrate selected folder and folder contents" option

    5.Enter or paste the SharePoint url

    6.Click "Migrate"
