To migrate Dropbox for Business accounts to Office 365 Sharepoint accounts, you need to create one-way sync pairs like this:

Dropbox (   ->  Office 365 Sharepoint ( Library
Dropbox ( -> Office 365 Sharepoint ( Library

The above will do one-way sync of each Dropbox account to corresponding Office 365 OneDrive Sharepoint account. The data will be migrated but also kept in sync allowing you seamless transition.

cloudHQ will also replicate all sharing information and permissions from Dropbox to Office 365 Sharepoint.

Office 365 Preparation:

  • OneDrive Business accounts have to be fully provisioned. cloudHQ will not provision Office 365 OneDrive Business accounts on your behalf. This means each Office 365 user must log in at least once to their OneDrive Business account.
  • An Office 365 admin needs to be added as an admin to users’ personal websites.
    The instructions are here:
