This article explains the need to create migration folders during file migration.

1. _TRUNCATED folder

In OneDrive, folder and file URL lengths are limited to 260 characters. In Google Drive, their length is unlimited. In order to migrate any Google Drive folders with more than URL characters to OneDrive, a folder called _TRUNCATED is created by the migration tool. All the long URL folder’s contents will be migrated to this folder.

2. zSharedWithMe

The Cloudiway platform migrates files to this folder that:

- were in Google’s ‘Shared with me’ view in the source
- have any parent folder in Google Drive (because the Google API doesn’t return a location of that file).
