Migration Assessment Scan: File Versions
Learn how to fix issues with file versions during migration.
Versions have historically impacted the length of a migration for a given site in a linear fashion. The more versions you have, the longer it will take to migrate a given site.
By default, versioning is enabled for all lists and libraries on the target platform. In the destination SPO site, there is no limit when versioning is enabled.
Any site that is configured as "No Access" (locked), in SharePoint will be skipped. To see a list of locked site collections see the Locked Sites scan output.
Preparing for Migration
Examine the report and determine if preserving versions is needed or not for your business.
Site owners should validate their version information was migrated as expected.
