Mover.io retirement timeline

Note

Attention businesses or those with EDU plans: We have retired the legacy Mover tool's ability for admin-led migrations from Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, and Egnyte. Please use Migration Manager, located in the SharePoint admin center.

Individuals or students: You may continue to use Mover, learn how!

Important

All FastTrack-led migrations will transition to Migration Manager except those with multi-parent folders who have reached velocity migrations. These exceptions will need to finish their migrations by December 31, 2022.

Mover's cloud migration scenarios are fully available in Migration Manager and have set the timeline to retire Mover. Unifying the migration experience within Migration Manager simplifies the tool decision for you and allows us to focus our development and support resources to help you meet your migration goals.
