This feature gives you an overview of your source target in order to estimate the effort it would take to migrate it to SharePoint or Office 365.
This feature does not support SharePoint 2003 and SharePoint 2007.
Service pack 1 or higher is required to run Source analysis on SharePoint 2010.
- Select Plan from the menu in the ShareGate Desktop app.
- Click from the Source analysis box.
- Select SharePoint & Office 365 as your analysis type.
- Select your Intended Destination.
- Select the target for your analysis.
- Your results will now load.
The results screen provides a summary of the analysis you just ran. This is a quick way to see how many site collections, sites, unused sites, and enabled workflows you have.
The size gage (MB ) at the top-right corner gives a count of the total size of all site collections.
Note: The size gage gives you the the sum of all your site collections, and does not include the size of your subsites. You can get a true total by exporting the result and adding up the size of all your site collections and subsites in Excel.
