    The last step to complete migration is to clean up migration data. You can use the Clean Up Migration Data command after you have stopped gathering data for each source site. This action removes data about the current source hierarchy from the System Center 2012 Configuration Manager database. This step is optional.

    When you clean up migration data, most data about the migration is removed from the database of the destination hierarchy. However, details about migrated objects are retained. With these details, you can use the Migrationworkspace to configure the hierarchy where the data was migrated from as the current source hierarchy to either resume migration, or to review the objects that you migrated and site ownership of objects.

  • So, my source data will not be affected - read:deleted - by this action. It's safe.

    Thanks for the explanation.
