File System Inventory & everything you need to know about it

Babita Kiran

Planning to migrate from File System to SharePoint?

You’ve made a great choice! But that’s not it, you need to analyze your content as well. Analyzing content is important because there are some limitations in SharePoint which can disrupt your migration.  

Let’s see some of the limitations of SharePoint:

  • SharePoint restricts some special characters in folder/file names. 
  • SharePoint restricts some end fragments in folder/file names. 
  • Each SharePoint version contains different blocked extensions. 
  • SharePoint limits the length of folder/file names. 
  • SharePoint restricts the URL path for folder/file. 
  • SharePoint rejects the file if the size limit is reached. 

You can find all the limitations here. These limitations are enough for you to realize that migrating to SharePoint without proper analysis is not a good choice. So, a tool that serves your purpose is to be considered.  

There are many migration tools out there in the market but, there are only a few tools that ease your migration process. One such tool is the Saketa SharePoint Migrator.
