Migrating Files to SharePoint

(Cloud or On-premise)
It seems like half the modern world is moving to SharePoint these days. SharePoint may be popular, but what’s not popular is the process of migrating files and folders to it. Many IT professionals have lost data during these file migrations due to broken file links caused by the moving and renaming of files and folders.
Let LinkFixer Advanced™ protect your links and possibly your job.

Migrating Files to Microsoft 365

The benefits of this industry-leading platform cannot be ignored. But whether you are using SharePoint or OneDrive for your cloud file storage, there’s a sneaky problem that occurs while you are migrating files and folders to Microsoft 365: File links break by the thousands. This results in missing data (and complaining end-users).
By automatically handling your file links, LinkFixer Advanced can prevent data from going missing in the first place, or can restore data that seems to have disappeared (if you have already migrated).

Migrating Files to OneDrive

OneDrive handily allows users to store files and personal data in the cloud, making moving to a remote work environment a breeze. Of course, the moment you move or rename files or folders, or begin any kind of restructuring, links break and data is lost. LinkFixer Advanced can prevent that from happening, or restore your lost data if your file migration has already gone awry.

Server Refresh and Upgrades

(What your hardware rep won’t tell you)

Upgrading server infrastructure on a regular schedule improves performance, efficiency and reliability. What your hardware rep won’t tell you is all about the hassle of maintaining your file links in the process and the consequences of failing to do so (lost data, downtime, complaining users). LinkFixer Advanced makes file migration a breeze.

Migrating Files to Azure

As a powerful file migration tool, LinkFixer Advanced can make the process of migrating to Azure File Share less daunting by providing migration without any data loss due to broken links.
So, if you want to ensure a smoother and lower-stress file migration to or from Azure File Share, consider using LinkFixer Advanced, the go-to tool for automatically protecting good links and fixing broken links during file migrations.

Migrating Files to Box

When it comes to migrating to Box, it is important to think outside the box. Yes, Box enables the secure and reliable cloud storage of your files and folders, but moving and renaming files and folders can still result in data that seems to have disappeared.
This is the result of links being broken during a file migration and it's exactly what LinkFixer Advanced was designed to automatically handle for you.

File System Restructuring

Files and folders get reorganized — sometimes by you, sometimes by others. Either way, you need to pay careful attention to your links. Those links, when broken — which will happen in the process of renaming files, folders or drives — cause problems for users (lost data, downtime). And we all know that user problems become your problems. LinkFixer Advanced can avoid the whole mess for you.

Migrating Files to Dropbox

Dropbox is well-known for its online storage capabilities and file sharing features. But one thing not contained in its toolbox is a way to prevent the lost data that occurs when you move or rename files and folders that contain links. For this, a powerhouse like LinkFixer Advanced is the right file migration tool for the job, either to prevent the links from breaking in the first place, or to repair the broken links and automatically restore your lost data after the fact.

Migrating Files to Amazon Web Services

Migrations to Cloud-hosted services such as AWS are unfortunately not immune to data loss. Protecting your linked data — pre-migration — is one of the surest ways to guard against data loss due to broken links. This is what LinkFixer Advanced was born to do.

If your migration is already complete, you could also use LinkFixer Advanced as your disaster recovery tool that will locate and repair broken links, instantly restoring the missing data.

Whether you’re migrating files and folders to AWS or some other Cloud platform, LinkFixer Advanced can protect your linked data, guarding against data loss.

Migrating Files to The Cloud

New cloud-based storage systems seem to be popping up every day, and the benefits of each are well documented. However, what isn’t well documented are the problems (missing data, user downtime) resulting from the migration causing file links to break.
LinkFixer Advanced is the file migration tool that can re-link everything for you, fast and automatically.
