Well this is just a quick update that after setting up my Symbolic Links in the Part 2 of this series. My Mapped Network Drive Files have started to upload.
It seemed to take quite a while for the OneDrive for Business Sync Client to process all of the files prior to commencing the upload.
The exact time is unknown to me at this time. I don’t really care because once this is done my old File Server is getting turned off
As you can see from the screen shot above I only have 94K Files and about 300 GB of data to go.
I guess patience is key with this version of the Sync Client but overall I am very happy that I have been able to successfully do the following:
#1 – Not have a duplicate copy of my data to perform the Sync
#2 – Move the files easily up to my SharePoint Online Document Libraries using the OneDrive for Business Sync Client
#3 – Finally get rid of this super old Windows 2008 Storage Server
#4 – Throw and party and celebrate a Server that lasted almost 10 years for me.
In the next couple of posts I am going to dig into troubleshooting this client for you.
That’s all for now…
