  • Hi Praveen, here is a link from SharePoint forums:

    I would suggest that a tool may be useful. I know that DocAve is a great tool, though it has a significant cost.

    If you have a simple solution and just need to migrate docs, then you may want to consider a cheaper option.

  • Hi,

    According to your post, my understanding is that you wanted to migrate Sharepoint 2010 to office 365.

    There are some ways to migrate SharePoint 2010 to Office 365:

    1. Save the SharePoint site to template, and then upload it to Office 365 and activate it. As far as I know, this is the only migration approach mentioned in Office 365 documentation.
    2. Custom Code: use Client Object Model to iterate content and upload it to Office 365.
    3. Use third-party software. E.g. MetaVis Migrator for Office 365(it has 1 GB free now)

    In addition, this question is an Office 365 related question, for quick and accurate answers to your questions, it is recommended that you initial a new thread in Office 365 forum.

  • Please install Metalogix Migration expert tool which provide assement of your farm/site.

    Usually Migration of Out of Box would be easier , custom Sandbox solution need re deploy as wsp/jquery

    using tool you can copy /paste easy way with security/content/users/groups

    Check what are AD groups you have and map them with users.

    Here is the download location:

    Here is the very detailed and helpful documentation for the software:

    There is also a Knowledge Base here (filter by Content Matrix SharePoint edition):
