File Server to Microsoft 365

Improve governance, access and controls for folders and files. Increase productivity by giving employees the collaboration tools they’ve come to expect.

Is it for me?

Todays workforce has a certain expectation when working with colleagues, collaborating on documents and tasks. Having to rely on outdated technology, which lacks in features and document control, can be frustrating for employees. Countless hours are wasted searching through folders, dealing with duplication and navigating emails to find “that” attachment.


Alongside outdated technology, most companies have an abundance of legacy data. Some of which is relevant, a lot of which is not. They see the benefits of migrating to the cloud, but with files stored on shared drives, desktops, Dropbox and other locations, it can be hard to know where to start or what approach to take.


yoko:10 has a proven migration methodology, which provides:


  • A defined approach for adopting Microsoft 365; what to use when, and what goes where.
  • A properly planned and configured SharePoint, OneDrive and Teams environment.
  • Analysis and identification of existing redundant, obsolete or trivial data.
  • Migration planning and execution, covering the migration of files, permissions and properties.
  • Training and communications, to support change and drive adoption of Microsoft 365.

Why yoko:10?

At yoko:10, we don’t favour the “lift and shift” approach. Yes, migrating to Microsoft 365 provides access to industry leading collaboration tools, but it’s also an opportunity to improve existing information management and data governance practices.


A little extra time spent on analysis, planning and governance could mean the difference between failure or success. Our methodology means we’ve got all bases covered, and we can ensure your move to Microsoft 365 is as smooth and productive as possible.

What’s involved?

We’re happy to discuss your migration requirements, or answer any questions you may have. Just pick up the phone or drop us an email.


In the meantime, here’s an overview of the main areas we’d expect to cover when delivering a file server migration project:


  • A workshop to confirm requirements, and understand your current IT landscape, data repositories and approach to information management and governance.
  • Discuss options relating to tenant configuration and the migration approach.
  • Review migration tools, including features, suitability and associated cost.
  • Analyse and review existing on-premises content repositories.
  • Create a migration plan, covering the agreed requirements and approach.
  • Complete your Microsoft 365 migration, in line with the agreed migration plan.
  • Provide training and onboarding for employees, teams and admins.

How much and how long?

Our shared drive migrations start from £6,765 + VAT and can be completed in as little as four weeks.


Organisation structure (the number of departments and teams) and the number and variety of existing file stores are the main areas affecting timescales and costs.
