To migrate Box Business / Enterprise accounts to OneDrive accounts managed, you need to create one-way sync pairs like this:

Box (   -> OneDrive (
Box ( -> OneDrive (

The above will create a one-way sync of each Box account with a corresponding OneDrive account. The data will be migrated, and it will also be kept in sync—allowing you seamless transition.

cloudHQ will also replicate all sharing information and permissions from Box to OneDrive.

Here are step-by-step instructions for how to setup data migration sync pairs.
