Large file transfers to 365 net empty folders online

Aaron Wolff 1 Reputation point

When my agency copies an employee home folder to 365 only the top-level files copy over. The subfolder structure is created but the actual subfolder files are never copied over. Is there a tool or other method we should be using? We waste a lot of time with what we are currently doing.
