    3. then i try to do a test migration, where i select a folder inside the file share >> and i chose the destination to be a document library inside a sharepoint modern communication site.

    but i have noted that the Files (office files, pdf) and sub-folders had their ModifiedBY & CreatedBY fields = "System Account".. so why the SharePoint migration tool did not preserve the ModifiedBY & CreatedBY fields??
