Migrate content from Dropbox to Microsoft 365

Reference ID: MC256476 | Effective: June 1, 2021

MC256476 – In public preview, this new feature release will enable admins to take advantage of Microsoft’s expanded support for third-party cloud providers and migrate content from Dropbox to Microsoft 365.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 82015.

When this will happen:

Microsoft will begin rolling this out for Public Preview in late May and expect to complete the rollout by early June.

How this will affect your organization:

This release will enable you to migrate your Dropbox folders, files, and users to OneDrive, SharePoint, and Teams in Microsoft 365 and collaborate all in one place.

As you connect to a Dropbox for Business account, the service begins discovering users and their files. The service will automatically map to an individual’s OneDrive accounts, but you can also manually map to a specific OneDrive user account, SharePoint site, or a Teams channel.

If you want to migrate your content from Dropbox into Microsoft 365, you can use this tool to copy your content from Dropbox to Microsoft 365.

Scan discovery: View the files and folder quantity, assessment, before moving to the Migrate tab where you’ll see the source and progress.

What you need to do to prepare

Sign in to the SharePoint admin center, select Migration from the left pane, and then select Dropbox. You will be walked through the steps and be prompted for the pertinent information needed to start your migration.

Note: To access, you must be a global admin or OneDrive/SharePoint admin to the Microsoft 365 tenant where you want to migrate your content.

This preview is currently supporting small to medium Dropbox accounts. For the large Dropbox accounts, some of the features may not function as expected. You can use Mover.io if the size of this Dropbox account exceeds the limit supported by this preview release.
