8 Best Practices for Egnyte Migration
Egnyte migration is when a business is transferring data from Egnyte into another cloud provider, or moving from any cloud storage to Egnyte.
When organization has decided to migrate the data from Egnyte, the IT manager needs to have the option of copying types of files and maintaining the hierarchical structure of the files as it is. The administrators must have the ability to manage Egnyte subaccounts and apply filters by creation, size and modification dates to filter out unnecessary files. The organization just need to choose a suitable cloud migration tool that can help them to move the data from Egnyte into SharePoint online (for example) to succeed in their objective.
Migrate from Egnyte is a very complex task. This involves moving current data from Egnyte to other storage such as Egnyte to OneDrive or even backup Egnyte to your File System. Today we present the best practices that will help you to carry out the migration from Egnyte properly.
- Create a Migration Strategy
Organize your data, verify the data volume, users, permissions, projects, folders, file types, check if you have unnecessary files that you can filter out, check what you are going to migrate, where it sits, where and how it’s stored, the hierarchy structure and the format it’s going to take after the transfer.
- Prepare the Environment
If you have multiple users to migrate, export the list of the source system user accounts to a CSV file. Add users to your Destination Environment.
- Search for a Migration Tool
Migrate manually is not the best idea. Using a cloud transfer tool like Cloudsfer, will make the process faster, cost effective and more efficient.
- Evaluate the tool

This will also aid in making the users more comfortable with the new cloud environment and does mindset shift by allowing the stakeholders to see the benefits of the cloud migration.
- Check your internet connection
Most of the public cloud providers use the public Internet. Some organizations, might worry that the Internet is too slow and not secure enough to meet their migration needs. Cloudsfer also provides secured cloud migration with custom tailored solutions capable of running within client local infrastructure.
- Check Reports for every step of the migration
The reports give you the mapping of all items and folders from the source system to the target location and list of files and folders that could not be migrated.
